Yarn Along

I have a couple projects on my needles right now, the variegated yarn is turning into a pair of leg warmers for me.  The peony Cestari yarn will be a simple tunic (using the Kaia Babydoll pattern) as part of Rowan's Christmas gifts.  I work on tunic while I put her to bed, it's dark enough in her room that she can't see what I'm knitting and the pattern is simple enough I can knit it in near darkness.

My evenings are spent on sewing and pattern cutting lately, I'm nearing the end of my Christmas crafting though so I'll be looking for something a bit more challenging to cast on.  I'd like to try some simple colour work, does anyone have any pattern suggestions?

I'm reading Elizabeth and After by Matt Cohen, I found it hard to get into and though I'm enjoying the story it hasn't gripped me yet.

Stocking Tomorrow

I'll be adding a few things to my Etsy shop tomorrow.  A few wet bags and some serged pads.  I've got some minky, cotton, and flannel topped pads to add some have PUL too.

I'll be working on some Christmas sewing over the weekend wrapping birthday gifts for my almost 9 year old (!) and hopefully getting some solo time at the fabric store where I'll be looking for a couple of new prints for pads and wet bags and a few things to finish up my holiday sewing.

Next week I'll be working on a few turned and topstitched pads for the shop so watch for those listings toward the end of the week.

Here's a peek at some of what will go up tomorrow, I wish I could list them today but my house needs some attention!  Be sure to like me on facebook and Twitter (@MeghanLaw)  to get immediate access to my listings and shop sales.

Last of the Christmas Pads

I wasn't expecting to be able to get a stocking done this week, but I've managed to (somehow!).  I'm off to finish up my listings and later this weekend I'll continue to update my Flickr gallery, it's been in an embarrassing state lately and I'm slowly getting it built back up.  You can see some of the cotton prints I'll be adding at the bottom of this post.  I need to do some fabric shopping too, so it's not all that bad!

I've listed a few more Christmas pads and they'll likely be the last I list for in-stock since Christmas.

Pads for the Week

I'm adding some pads to the shop today, a few turned & topstitched Christmas pads, and plenty of serged jersey knit topped pads.  I plan on sewing a few more wet bags over this week and next week.  I'm preparing for our youngest to have surgery at the middle of the month so there will be a bit of a break from stocking, though it's not a surgery that will require a long recovery so I'll still be shipping orders.  

have a peek in the shop....

A Well Lit Corner

I just added several pads to the shop, I was very happy to discover a well lit corner that lets in enough light for photos even on a cloudy day.  Photography is not one of my talents but it's so important to have clear photos for listings.  I actually ended up re-photographing many items and updating my listings with the improved photos.  A busy day today!  There's just two more listing to finish up tonight, here's a peek at what's in store...  

I added some great stash starter sets too, they include a variety of sizes and fabric tops (cotton, flannel, and minky) to allow you to try a few different fabrics they each have hidden PUL too, I remember looking for my first pads and at the time PUL was important for making that transition.  As with all my serged style pads they're priced very affordably too.

Waiting for the Sun

I'm waiting for clear skies here, I've got lots of pads to list but I need some light to take pictures.  Watch for some pads to pop into the shop over the weekend, a real mix of pads including turned and topstitched, serged, minky, cotton, and flannel topped.   Some with PUL, some without.

There's still several pads instock too...
