I'm Back!

So I have no real explanation for why I haven't posted in SO long other than I was busy getting engaged, buying a house, and applying to law school. But now that those things are just about done, I can get back to the more important things in life like fiber arts!

In the past few months I have continued to make progress on my multi-fiber scarves (they will be complete on Tuesday, woohoo!), crocheted my first pair of socks, and experimented with sewing in preparation for the ability to sew my own woven fabrics. I seemed to have misplaced photos of the socks I made, so I will have to take some more pictures and upload them another time.

Here is a picture of a small tote bag I made on the sewing machine:

Here are two crocheted bibs I made for a girlfriend's (soon-to-be) twin boys: (this was my first try with crocheting images and I think they turned out pretty well!)

I will post about the woven scarves on Tuesday when I complete them at the ArtSpace. Speaking of the ArtSpace, we are having our annual Holiday Bazaar on Friday, December 4. The ArtSpace is in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, DC, so if you're in the area, save the date!

Congratulations! On the bibs and the bags of course.

And huge congratulations on getting engaged and buying a house!! That will definitely keep you busy. Not to mention law school!

Lots of good stuff going on for you. That's great. Looking forward to pics of your mixed fiber warp. I'm stumbling over a mixed warp that I'm trying to make work, so I have ulterior motives!

The bibs came out so cute. The buttons were a great way to finish them off. And I am sure your girlfriend will cherish the gifts from the heart.
