I have so many fulled sweaters, thread, beads, etc that I could supply any and all who wanted to make a creature if there is enough interest. I have a venue downtown in mind as well.
There are amazing places to see here, Dundurn castle, the Royal Botanical Gardens, the waterfront has some neat spots, there's Gage park, many theaters and galleries and amazing little shops downtown on James St. The GO train station is right downtown, it's about 45mins-1hr ride to Toronto at a cost of about $12 each way.

Patraw, it would be a challenge to work so small but... I've seen baby sized camo socks Cheesy.

Totally attending and would be happy to facilitate a something-along... Sock monkey? Monster lab? Teesha Moore style patches? I have supplies galore.
I would love to visit Wulf in Toronto, that sounds like super extra plus good fun!

Oh, they are SO lovely! We received 2 hand blocked cards last year that were so inspiring. We moved house this past December though so there was no crafting going on. I will certainly try to make our own cards for next xmas. I've seen it done with a simple jig to line up the blocks, an empty picture frame could work if the blocks were the right size. If one of us pulls it off let's post progress shots... or what not to do disaster shots as the case may be Cheesy

I must have downloaded a dozen PDFs from her site, certainly every sock creature she's made, lol! Very professional presentation, I was really impressed. And all for FREE! So generous... Reminded me so much of this lovely community. I'm always so happy to see that going on, sharing and caring!

I was looking for something completely different and stumbled onto this blog with incredible patterns, all free, downloadable PDFs, just WOW!
I thought somebody here might appreciate these.

I am still pretty far from being able to craft anything but we did finally organize the basement a bit so one step closer. I have no pictures to share of that dismal space until we get some paint on it and cheer it up a little, it's not a inspiring room yet and that, I find, is essential to creativity for me. If I get distracted by chaos or ugliness I don't focus. Plus brrr cold basement with concrete floors. Needs to get cozy. I'm working on it! We've finally got internet up and running at home now so I can at least be inspired by all of you Smiley.

- Get out of the mentality that I need one of everything or that I need every color in a certain supply!

D'oh, this is me too. That's how I ended up with such thorough collections of beads and floss. I used to have every shade of yarn but gave them all up to an actual knitter, ha! Also garbage bags of cut up fleece clothes in rainbow profusion. I used a lot of that but the rest went to another crafter. I have a weakness for wool sweaters from the thrift store and confess to 2 large bins. At least they've been shrunk up in the wash and cut apart but still... after making 8 dozen monster I promised I'd quit "rescuing" old sweaters from the thrift store. I lied...

I'd like to update my sewing machines this year, a domestic straight stitch (though I would Love an embroidery machine!) and a new serger. I'm always nervous about doing good research so suggestions welcome! I'll destash my used machines to our small local theater venue, they will make good use of them I'm sure.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

... I have had macrame cord in my garage for 20 years now...I don't think I need it.

Aaahhhh!!! The thing I've been wanting for AGES! LOL. This is something I've learned, no matter what the stash is there is somebody out there that will gladly take it off your hands and even, amazingly after it's been sitting in your cupboard for months or years, actually use it up Smiley.

My major project that's the focus of all right now is a big new house. It doesn't really need any work, a few things that can wait for as long as we want. There's room for a studio so that's what I'll be doing, setting that up. I'm pretty excited. I got rid of a ton of stash when we moved but there are always projects that can't be let go of. My goal is to finish ALL the UFO's, no exceptions, before bringing anything new home.

Love it! Awesome attention to detail. I am particularly admiring the bricks, very realistic. They are one thing I like to see well done. I am a fan of good brick work, large and small Smiley.
