episode 31 - so much learning

Episode 31 – 8/20/14 – so many ways to learn!

Out of the Stash (FOs):
  • ·         You get to see what you can win in the Fudge Ripple KAL! I sewed project bags this weekend and you can win one! It's a very fitting pattern too. =)
  • ·         I finally sewed my living room curtains too!

On their way out (WIPs):
  • ·         Doncaster Shawl – pattern by Holli Dapp – using my handspun!
  • ·         Spinning up two 4-oz braids to 2-ply: Both are merino/silk/bamboo. Chicks Dig Scars from Cattail Knits and Beach House 5 from Spinneretta’s Studio.
  • ·        Working on my August washcloth – Trying out Tunisian Chevron Stitch with some Lily Sugar’n Cream cotton in Violet Stripes. I found directions for this stitch in 
  • ·        I still need to finish the purse for the Paradise Fibers KAL! I’m running out of time!


Future plans:
  • ·         Doing some sewing machine maintenance with direction from a couple of Craftsy classes: Sew Ready: Machine Basics with Amy Alan and Sewing Machine 911 with Claudia Miller
Here's the class you can still get for free:

·         I also plan to watch T-Shirt Quilting with Diane Gilleland this Thursday and Friday (Aug 21-22) on CreativeLive. This is a free class if you watch during the live stream. They also usually show it again for other time zones.
