three's company

hooray for knitting! haven't talked about it much lately here, but that doesn't mean that it hasn't been going on in the background. there is almost always a wip (work-in-progress) to be found in these parts. right now there are three! two shawls and a summer sweater. take a peek:

blown away

oh baltimore, jewel of the chesapeake, you never fail to charm and enchant the visitors who happen upon your cobblestone streets and bustling waterfronts. you rolled out your magical welcome to a group of enthusiastic crafters one sunny saturday afternoon. we set up our wares under blue skies dotted with fluffy white clouds...the smell of a nearby bakery was in the air...

there were high hopes, almost as high as the 50 mph winds that came ripping through our fragile tent city, smashing glass and ceramic, sending all things made of paper flying, and picking up weighted-down canopies like so many kites. most of us managed to make it though despite mother nature's best efforts to blow us away. special thanks to those who braved the gales to pay us a visit, shoppers and supporters alike.

please note: man passed out on park bench was not a display item,
but a casualty from the night before who needed a nap. a really long nap...

you might have bested us that day, baltimore, but we'll be back! (if only for the old bay fries)

your weekend, planned by me

so of course you'll be coming to the squidfire spring art mart in baltimore on saturday...but what about sunday? you should do something totally cute, something like this:

fabulous felt crafter, designer and author betz white is coming to the dc area to teach a workshop for fibre space. she'll be showing you how to construct this sweet little birdhouse with an equally sweet little tweet perched on top. it is mother's day...but it isn't limited to mother/daughter couples. anyone who wants to do something cute with their day and eat some yummy brunch (that's included too) can sign up. for more info, call the shop or check out the website.

tropical terry tote

here's what happens when you bring this chickadee some terry cloth and ask if it can be turned into a tote. of course it can! and you can draw up dimensions on the spot, specify the style of fabric for the lining and add some slip pockets inside and out.
