Meet my very colorful Magic Gecko!

Weaving Hand Spun Yarns into Shoulder Bags

New Weaving on the loom

New weaving project on the loom! The completed weaving will be about 8" x 92" and sewn into a bag per this pattern.

Weft yarns are hand spun yarns! And I am sharing all the sources in this post!

The warp which you can see above is from Yarnia.

Making Hexies On The Go Travel Kit

Mini hexies - making on the go!

Most of my readers know that when I am working on a project in earnest, I carry it with me almost everywhere I go to take advantage of what would otherwise be "lost" minutes! This habit is a big part of how I manage to fit as much crafty goodness into my life as I do! Generally speaking - most fiber crafts - knitting, crochet, embroidery and hand sewing - are excellent candidates! Hexies on the go - a bit more challenging! So many little bits and scraps - and hexies to corral.
