2021 and 2022 Peppermint Purple Stitch-a-longs

I got my fab­ric for the 2021 Pep­per­mint Pur­ple stitch-a-long (final­ly) and stitched the grid. Now I’m wait­ing on a ship­ment of thread so that I can be sure to have enough of it to fin­ish the whole piece in one dye lot. The post office lost the fab­ric for the 2022 stitch-a-long for a few […]

Blackwork Project 2

I’m almost fin­ished with the sec­ond black­work project I start­ed to keep me busy each week while wait­ing for the next pat­tern drop from the 2020 Stitch-A-Long. This one is also by Pep­per­mint Pur­ple. She calls it Black­work Bands.

Stitching Post

I men­tioned on my needle­crafts page that I’ve been enjoy­ing black­work late­ly thanks to Pep­per­mint Pur­ple’s 2020 Stitch-A-Long A Year of Black­work. I described it to some­one and she said she’d like to see it, so here’s a pho­to of what I’ve done so far.

The first piece is a for-no-rea­­son one, the sec­ond a baby gift which was also my first coop­er­a­tive project (and a big suc­cess).  I’m […]

A New Hobby?

Plinky asked, “What new hob­by would you like to try out?” Camille Sil­ver­man — warp and weft I would love to try weav­ing. I mean the great big loom sort of weav­ing, done with hand­made fibers — maybe even with fibers I spun myself. The entire idea of weav­ing has always been so very attrac­tive to […]

Setting Up Shop

Plinky asked, “If you were going to open up a shop, what would you sell? Food? Cloth­ing? Books?” Book­store (IBC) Books and needle­work items! My for­mer part­ner and I used to dream about open­ing a com­bi­na­tion book/stitching/gaming/coffee shop.  Of course, inde­pen­dent book­stores are near­ly dead, and even Bor­ders is dead now thanks to Ama­zon. Lit­tle needlework […]
