OK - so I'm stealing my title from Martha Stewart... but I really do have some good things to show you.
I have gotten some really amazing packages in the mail lately. When I got home from Cancun - I found these pretties waiting:
Socks that Rock in the new Raven Clan colorways! I picked two - Pallas Athena and
Rook-y and I love them!
I can't wait to make something out of them.
I also got my box of goodies a.k.a. - The Sampler! I have tried to get one of these packages several times, and they were always sold out. So I was so glad to finally get one! It has all kinds of handmade things inside. It's basically a place for indie artists to showcase their goods.
The holiday edition is availble now.
And finally - I got this new book - Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. I love this book!
There are so many cool things in here. I've already made a few (but they are gifts - so no pictures yet!) I can't wait to try some of the quilts in here. There's a nice blend of small projects and larger projects inside that will allow even the newest sewer to make some great things. I highly recommend it.
I don't know about where you guys live - but around here the leaves are just amazing right now. They are falling off faster and faster so I wanted to take a few last pics of the gorgeous Autumn leaves and I just happened to finish this handspun that looks so much like the colors of Fall.
Can you see it?
How about now?
I love the colors of this fiber. It's a merino tencel blend by Mama-E from her Cyberfiber line. It's Summer Solstice.
And finally - I'm not sure if it will actually be done by the end of November - but I did start Ariann for NaKnitSweMo (knit a sweater in a month) this month. I'm about halfway done right now - I just bound off the armholes. Time to start the sleeves!
I'm using Classic Elite Skye Tweed:
Wish me luck in finishing! I only have 4 more days in November!!!
