busy, busy, busy

The last couple of weeks have been busy...getting adjusted to a new schedule and whatnot. I have completed somethings though, and started some too.

I put together 2 more submissions for the Sampler, one for September and one for October. It seems to be bringing the etsy store a lot of traffic. Speaking of which, I sold something!! Two somethings actually, two scarves to a really nice girl from England. It feels really validating to have some feedback finally. :)

The spinning has been on hiatus because I've just been too tired to deal with it. Or sore - new personal trainer doesn't think that crafting is something to save energy for.

Aileen's sweater is still trucking along. I really think I can have it done for Christmas if I just keep on it.

Right now I'm in countdown to Saturday - I started a baby blanket on Monday evening that I need for a baby shower Saturday evening. I'm cutting it a little tight, but I think I'll make it(keeping fingers crossed).

swaps galore

Here are some things I made for a recent swap. The theme was "Something you can put stuff in".

A wallet:

A mini-scrapbook:

A jordy bag:

And a really great bunch of cards I received from craft_t_chic for the Greeting Card Swap:

report card

here's what i've got going and how well i'm working on it:

* aileen's sweater: back finished, sleeves started. i really tend to just knit on this at knitting group so hopefully tonite will be a productive time.

* mary ella from all beads on cotton. all necessary tools present and accounted for. have yet to do even one stitch.

* spinning: took adrienne's free yarn off the spindle and started on my ebay roving. it is delightful to spin with, very soft with long fibers. i try to put in at least 1/2 an hour each day, but don't always make it.

* darci scarf from KnitWit: had to take it off the needles to lend them to someone. will resume at a later date.

* Jen's garter: ha! too difficult for me. i finished about 2 inches and gave up. too small, too many special stitches.

* unbiased from finished. i still haven't worn it anywhere, but its done. i'll post photos soon.

In addition I've been trying to keep my cardmaking going along so I can sell some cards on etsy.
