"Monetize Your Craft Blog" - Class Review!

Monetize your Craft Blog

Due to the fact that Diane had more people wanting to take her first Monetize Your Craft Blog Class in August than she had seats available, she is offering the class again!

And again, already she has almost filled every seat! So if you are thinking about it - you had better hurry and make the decision to register!

Climbing a Mountain! And Crocheting Christmas Trees!

Mt. Shuksan, Washington State I may be absent from this space for a bit. I have a new "computer world" learning curve ahead of me and right now I feel like I am setting up base camp preparing to climb Mt. Shuksan!

We shall see how it goes! But if you don't see me here for a week or so, you will know I am processing new information! Better now than in November - right!

Winter Solstice Quilt Block - August Update

Winter Solstice Quilt block in progress

I have made lots of progress on my Winter Solstice quilt block project this month! My goal for August was to cut all the pattern pieces and stitch them together so the block is ready for embroidery - lots of embroidery! And I am almost there!

Like I said before - making blog posts of projects that have been languishing on my to do lists year after year - best idea I ever had! Quite an effective motivator!

Dutch Canal House Embroidery - August Update (Having Too Much Fun!)

Dutch Canal Houses embroidery

Dutch Canal Houses! Great progress is being made!

I didn't plan it this way, but the table runner is becoming an opportunity to learn new stitches as I look for ways to create interest and texture.

My strategy? Simply to page through two of my most favorite stitch references until a stitch jumps out at me! Most times the stitch itself will suggest where it is best to be used!
