DIY Spray Paint Crazy

DIY Spray Paint Crazy

I love DIY Spray Paint projects a lot, mostly because it is so much fun to personalize things with color. It’s my favorite repurposing thing to do with thrift finds! Plus it’s the quickest way to totally transform the look of something, which is always fun. These days you can find so many different hues […]

The Crocheted Gray Granny Square Shawl

The Crocheted Gray Granny Square Shawl

Almost a year ago my father’s mother passed away. I have her photo on the shelf, and plenty of her “stuff”. Using some wool found in her stash, I crocheted a granny square shawl for myself. I love it and I’m so happy we finally got snow before New Year’s so I could enjoy it […]

I always say that I’m not a Christmas Crafting Person, but of course, I think a little of it is fine once December comes around – and can be rather jolly. Wanna join me and make a small Christmas Tree from felt? I will just never be the Super Craft Blogger to share a new […]

Inspiration | 5 Pretty Craft Ideas

Inspiration | 5 Pretty Craft Ideas

I kid you not, but I actually still love to do craft. I have a knitting project, a hexagon project and a few embroidery ideas here for sure, but most of all a whole slew of paper craft projects going on. It’s just not visible in the blog right now. Once my knitting project is […]

A Knitted kind of Crazy

A Knitted kind of Crazy

I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones. John Cage I think spring is on the way. We’ve got daylight a lot longer now, the sun is out more and the Crocus in full bloom. But yesterday it was actually snowing (!) when I was out walking. […]

I am in love with neon colors, so when I spotted some neon yarn I bought it. This sock yarn has all of the neon colors: pink, orange, cerise, yellow & green – in the same ball of yarn. I started knitting a pair of socks for myself in May, finished them this summer and […]

Wool Owl Parade

Wool Owl Parade

In the beginning of this year I talked about the firstborn owl, and now it’s autumn again and the rest of the gang feel safe to come out of the forest to show of their gray wool feathers… They’re all made out of felted sweaters, knitted in thick gray wool once upon a time. Hand […]

Stricken kann süchtig machen

Stricken kann süchtig machen

The label of this yarn that I bought Friday says: Stricken kann sόchtig machen! And if you’re a knitter you understand, even if you don’t speak German… Knitting can be addictive. Very addictive. And isn’t autumn all about cozying up indoors with a yummy ball of wool and turning it into something wearable? I think […]

Eye Candy | Freeform Embroidery

Eye Candy | Freeform Embroidery

July 30 is always World Embroidery Day – a day when we celebrate the slowness of stitching and enjoy the company of needle, fabric and thread. I thought I’d share some of my past embroideries (including a skirt, artist trading cards and wall hangings), as eye candy and maybe inspiration for you to pick up […]

Sun Printing Fabric

Sun Printing Fabric

One of my biggest Summer Crushes has always been Coloring Fabric Outside! Using paint and dye in the grass makes cleaning up a breeze! In summer, when ever the weather is good enough to bringing tools and materials outside, I bring tools and materials outside. I love being outdoor, and when I can I bring […]
