I'm still here!

I'm still here believe it or not! I work so many dang hours in the summer I have a hard time keeping up with everything. Good grief, where the heck did the month of July go?! And I really do miss it all.... blogging, my blog writing friends, my crafts, my family, etc...

I have squeezed in a few crafty things this summer. Here are some photos of what I can remember, LOL.

I got some yarns spun during the Ravelry Tour de Fleece. And created a cute little logo for the FIX TDF Team.

Outerspace Batt from Knottie Girl Designs...



Truffles batt from Blue Mountain Handcrafts.



A batt that I got from Shannon...



My first coils, superwash merino roving from Bumblebee Acres.



Superwash roving from Blue Mountain Handcrafts.



And with my first coils I wove this scarf & hat. I picked up stitches for the border, ribbing & button band & knitted those. And I made the buttons out of polymer clay.



I started this sock, we will see if I get it finished... and then the second one! This is my first toe up sock. The jury is still out on toe up sock knitting. I'm knitting this with some of Kathy's awesome sock yarn that she dyed.

Well, that's about it. Other than making a few clay stitch markers & such here & there, that's all I've gotten done craftywise since the last time I posted. Hopefully sometime in September my hours will go back to something near a normal 40 hr week & I'll be able to catch up on everything & everyone.  Take care! And if anyone needs me, just shoot me an email. Most of you have it. :)

It's all so pretty! I'm fascinated by the coils though. When are you coming to visit and teach me? ;)

Oh my holy cow!!! I absolutely love the coils. I'm with Chan...when are you going to teach us? When you visit, we'll have to set up a skype session so I can visit and learn too. :D

Those coils are fascinating. Would like to learn how to do that. Love the eye candy. It's all just gorgeous.
