book release day(s)

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 18:20:01 +0000

Yesterday was supposed to be the official book release day for Sewing for all Seasons, but due to some unexpected congestion and delays in the ports, the publication date has actually been pushed to October 15 – a two-week wait to ensure books are actually on shelves and in warehouses (and hopefully, mailboxes!). It was...

my new Vera ironing board cover

Wed, 30 Jan 2013 20:04:10 +0000

I’ve spent the last week cleaning and organizing my craft room and wow, it has been a ton of work! Last year was so busy and it felt like every minute of my childcare time was spoken for twice over. So I sewed until the last minute and rushed to pick my kids up from...

mend it better

Tue, 17 Apr 2012 22:43:54 +0000

I’m very excited to be reviewing Mend It Better, a wonderful new craft book by Kristin M. Roach (also author of the lovely blog/project/zine Craft Leftovers) today! Mend It Better offers a wide variety of useful techniques, from darning and patchwork to weaving and crochet, for reworking and salvaging garments and beyond. As Diane noted...

best birthday present ever

Tue, 24 Jan 2012 23:27:56 +0000

My birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and Andrew surprised me with this huge vintage science-lab bottle so I can make a mega-terrarium bottle garden! Happiness! I love it so much. Michelle and I headed over to Artemisia and I picked up some tiny, pretty plants that will hopefully slip through the narrow bottleneck....

make it: draft snakes!

Thu, 08 Dec 2011 22:37:13 +0000

Thank you to everyone who liked the two draft snakes I made this fall and asked for a tutorial – here you go! You can totally personalize yours as you like, I wrote up a couple of variations to try. I made one single-layer patchwork draft snake pieced from varying lengths of orange and blue...

spring round-up

Mon, 19 Apr 2010 22:49:38 +0000

Hello! I wanted to post about a whole bunch of different things today, but first, a huge thank-you for the kind comments and notes about my Easter craft projects, garden stuff, and recipes over the last week or two. I really appreciate them! It’s been so nice to share a few things I’m excited about,...

The Knittn Kitten crafty e-book is up for grabs!

Mon, 07 Dec 2009 22:38:00 +0000

I’m so excited that our collection of Kitten-inspired projects has been turned into a snappy new e-book, Crafts for the Knittn’ Kitten (courtesy of Diane Gilleland and her tireless Craftypod Publishing). The beautiful craft supply photos are by Lee Meredith, and the Kitten projects graphic is by Diana Schreiber. So thanks to Diane, the book...

two things that don’t have much to do with each other

Mon, 18 May 2009 20:07:32 +0000

…except that I like both of them, I guess. Our garden is kind of freaking out, in the best way. The combination of nice steady south-side sun, decent rain now and then, and some plain good luck has turned our formerly teeny snap peas, Red Russian kale and collard greens into giants! I took this...

garden crafting for a spring birthday

Mon, 04 May 2009 22:52:36 +0000

Pearl’s first birthday is this week and the Western Garden Book gave me an idea for something cool to celebrate. After calling everywhere I knew of here in Portland with no luck, I found exactly what I hoped for at Van Veen Nursery, an incredible place for azaleas and rhododendrons. They have thousands of varieties...

spring flowers

Mon, 27 Apr 2009 19:24:48 +0000

Wow, after a super busy week and a lot of things I’m excited about and wanted to mention (mason jars! inventing some hanging flower baskets! estate sales! garden! making a cookbook!) I am suddenly feeling horribly under the weather so I’m going to save those bits and pieces for another day. Bummer. I do have...
