I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

A few for you and one for me

A pillow for you, a pillow for him, a pillow for her, a pillow for me — everyone gets a pillow! Well, if you buy them from my Etsy shop, you do.

It all began this week with a pillow I started several months ago. I finally conquered the zipper enclosure for a pillow insert. That might sound like a pip-squeak of an accomplishment to some but for this beginner, it was pretty neat.

Now, let's get-let's get-let's get foxy! I put away the ruffles for this guy and went with one side of tassels. And while the fox might not be soft, you can certainly pet the black fleece.

The next pillow was bought before even listed. And a special thanks to jensantarelli for donating the shirt, too! Anyone can do this. Just contact me through Etsy conversations. You will get a discount and free shipping when the pillow is ready.

Speaking of Threadless, the next two are especially for the bloggers over there. For the past few years, artists and fans alike have made the trek to the Chicago headquarters in the fall. But for some, the desire to go does not match the money in their wallet. So the amazing community gets together for what they call a "bloggeraiser." By selling arts, crafts, shirts, etc., they raise money to send a special someone to the meetup. This year, I'm donating two pillow experiments to the cause.

With all these pillows bursting out of my craft room, I felt a little jealous. So I went ahead and made one for me to squeeze.
