Crafty Adventures

Cleaning the studio after winter and finally hanging art on the walls feels so good!

My comfy armchair wth the new collage above (yes, that bottom left canvas is blank. Seemed better to hang it now and decorate it later when I get to it)

the right side of my desk. a new backboard with hooks &
the rack for my threads
(some love notes from Willy & Aila on my tack board)
My workspace where I edit, check emails and fun stuff like that
The handpainted canvas to the left was a gift from my best friend Kris

On a Happy Note

 I just finished Week 4. I’m enjoying the armband option for phone. If you’re playing it aloud, be sure to face the bottom up towards your face so you can hear it. And if it rains, put a Ziplock bag over it! Voila. Dry phone!

There’s almost nothing that makes me happier than pool time on the weekend! Especially before my big work project ramps up!
Silly kids!
Watching 7 kids in a pool can be a little tricky, but its worth every second!
Finally- clean house makes me really happy!
Thanks for listening! Just one favor:

    Jen,
    I’ve been using the Spinning Wheel dishcloth pattern and really like it. For years, I’d just been knitting the same garter stitch dish cloth that my grandma taught me to make. It’s nice to have some variety now! :) Can you share how you seam it up when you are finished? I never like how my seam turns out, but I love the pattern!
    Thanks!
    Laura

    PS- I always look forward to your podcast. You do a great job. :)
