Monday is a great day to renew your dedication to the movement sweeping the world...renew your handmade pledge and get that crafty tingle from head to toe.
Here are a few goodies I've managed to find over the last few months...
There was a wee bit of knitting going on during my travels last week. I find knitting while waiting, riding the train or in the car very relaxing and keeps me from being a total knitting slacker when I feel myself distracted by life. You may recognize my Travel Go Lightly Purse, it's a free pattern from my website, knit1fortheroad. The yarn is The May Pole Dance Hand Spun Yarn from In The Eyes of March, on Etsy. Do visit the shop for more goodies. The Sari cloth is a scrap fat quarter from Fabricana ,also on Etsy.
I hope you'll be encouraged to think more about buying, creating, and using handmade items. Here's to gentle reminders, really cool projects, and a better tomorrow.
