Stash Enhancement Saturday: Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book

When writing this blog, sometimes I come across grammar questions and ponder whether to take the time to go look up the correct use or just leave the questionable usage as is, leaving a little something for future grammar sticklers to pick apart.  An excellent example is the title to today’s post.   Can you […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday – on a Sunday: Cosmo by Lecien Floss Bobbins

I have been in a very cross stitch mood as of late and my supplies are kind of strewn all over the table.  I knew I needed to buy some bobbins and wind the floss, but it kind of annoys me that the only real option to organize floss is the bobbin/plastic box option. I […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Erin Lane Project Bags

Every fiber artist needs a project bag or ten.  I probably have more than ten.  Okay, I actually probably have around 50, but I have a lot of WIPs!  I said that a little defensively,  I guess – can you feel personally attacked by your own words?  I also like how I used “a lot […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Crafty Christmas Gifts

As usual, my friends rocked the mic when it came to super thoughtful gifts for me.  They seemed to cover all the things I love – food (restaurant gift certificates, chocolate), relaxation (spa gift certificates), and crafty goodies like these below.  If I don’t mention it often enough, I love my friends! First up, this […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Sucre Sucre Miniatures

My obsession with tiny food miniature stitch markers continues.  I had seen various pictures on Instagram of the amazing work from Sucre Sucre Miniatures, but only recently purchased my first two to check them out on my own.  I am so glad I did because they are totally adorable! I chose the taco and burrito […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton

My yarn purchasing has been a bit slow lately, mostly because my knitting has been slow.  My wallet enjoyed the break, I am sure.  I need to start the holiday gift making, though, or else I am going to end up with no gifts to give. Therefore, right after Ravellenics is over, I am going […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Burning Impressions 2 Sock Blockers

As you may have noticed from pictures of my finished sock projects, I have big, Fred Flintsone sized feet.  Despite already owning sock blockers in a Large size, my socks still look kind of loose on them, so I knew it was time to size up to the XL sized blockers. Luckily, you can buy […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: ECLP Covers and Travel Dashboard

I mentioned in a previous post that one of the things I love about the Erin Condren Life Planner is that you can get interchangeable covers.  I change my covers every other month or so, and considering she keeps introducing super cute new ones, I don’t see this changing in the near future.  The latest […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Washi Storage

I have been in search for the best way to store my washi for awhile.  I’ve tried tape dispensers of all shapes, throwing them all in a bowl or a box, and just leaving them in the packages they come in.  Nothing was really working for me.  And then  I saw a genius idea in […]
