Good day everyone!
If you’ve been following my Facebook page, you may have seen that I had a bit of an accident involving my finger and a fabric rotary cutter. Well, it meant a couple trips to the hospital and slowed my crafting down a little. The silly finger stopped me from knitting full-stop for almost a month! But in that time, I worked on other stuff that just NEEDED to be done! The first of these projects being magnets. I love magnets as the husband and the fridge will attest to. I’m just so happy that I can now make my own and share my love of magnets with a few other people. Freedom Clothing Collective will be carrying some of them (they even made the window display!!) and the majority will be coming with me to Forest City Comic Con in London this October.
Next, I finally managed to finish my Child’s Play cross-stitch square. This patch along with several others will be made into a quilt that will be auctioned off at the Child’s Play dinner in the fall. I was involved in this project a couple of years ago and happy to be involved again. Last year, PopCap bought the quilt from the auction and it’s actually hanging in their office! Amazing!!
I’m off to GenCon in Indianapolis for the next few days. While most everyone else has days full of gaming planned, I will be crafting! Surprise, surprise! 🙂 I’ll be learning how to crochet and even chainmaille! How cool is that?
I hope you’re enjoying this wonderful summer weather we’ve been having and stay tuned for some super cute and geeky explosion boxes coming up next!
