A Basket Full of New Adventures

So for the record, I do still knit and spin wool, but I am branching out to other creative outlets as well. Imhave to be honest that I am slightly burned out with knitting at the moment and after 25 years of knitting, it’s time for a change up.  My knitting will continue, but as smaller projects, such as socks and accessories.  I will still spin but have decided to stop buying so much wool as I feel like I am now a “hoarder of fiber”.  I need a new creative outlet and I am rediscovering my love of embroidery and sewing.


Inside this basket is six new projects that I am very excited about and want to share with all of you today.



I have truly been enjoying hand embroidery and just purchased three beautiful pieces by Clementine Pattern Co.  I hope to start the one on the far left soon as it ready is  fall/Thanksgiving design and then I will start the Christmas one on the right.  If you haven’t seen these designs, be sure to check out their Etsy shop.  They carry PDF and kits.


Inside the Autumn issue of Simply Vintage is a table runner that plan to make using the lovely felted well below.  I purchased this wool from Ruby Mountain Dye Works , who carries a lovely collection of felted and dyed wool for wool appliqué projects.


I picked up two kits, a felt project by Buttermilk Basin and a small quilt project by Primitive Gatherings.


I also have plans of learning punch needles so I can make a few of Michelle Palmers designs for the holidays.  Isn’t this Snowman adorable!!!

Until next time, be creative!
