One more day of work for me and then a break for 8 days 🤗 I’m travelling to Malaysia on Thursday with my daughter and her team. But don’t worry I’m going to do all I can to keep on posting and I need internet for a few work related things too 😬
Tap to see the makers and share some love for their work! 🤗

Here’s the palette that inspired my Signature Collection. 💙💖🖤⠀
When I started making kits last fall, I cut the threads meter by meter to minimize materials costs. It took only one production round to realize that what I saved in materials, I made up for many times in labor—each individual kit took at least 10 minutes longer to create. There are many high-touch elements in a handcrafted product, and it’s important that each one adds to the user experience. ⠀
By switching to full skeins, I not only manage to avoid creating my own little sweatshop, but I am able to offer a more luxurious experience for my fellow stitchers. Now each kit comes with an even more generous supply of thread than before.
Such a lovely day roaming around on Dartmoor today! I took my #summerharmonyblanket to show you my progress, I've completed 2 of the 17 rounds of border, definitely plan to finish by the end of August! I'm finding the complicated nature of our summer quite tricky, can hardly believe this is the first day all 5 of us have managed to make for a day out together! The older two are working summer jobs and don't often have matching days off. We did a hike around Dartmeet and brought our own cream tea to eat by the river. So peaceful and beautiful! .
First, you are not seeing double. @caitknits freaking sent me her two @knitcrate hanks from @ourmakerlife meetup 2018! 😄 Man I love this community. Thank you Caitlin! This is going to become something awesome❤ .
Today is going to be a little different. It's a #makerlovemonday post but I don't have a photo of this maker. In fact I've never seen any of her work and she doesn't have a public page. .
I met Tammy at #oml2018 . We actually rode the bus together to Chicago. She told me later that she's been following me but just wasn't sure if it was me. So she didn't say anything! We could have been yapping the whole ride! I'm an introvert but don't get me started on making. I'll talk your ear off😂 She has a gagillion photos of her work that she's never shared, and I really wanna see. .
I started these posts and the tag because I want everyone to feel confident in their maker journey at whatever point they're at. I want everyone to know and feel how special they are. No matter what you do, nobody can do it just like you. I aim to always inspire and encourage everyone I can. That's part of my maker journey. .
This platform is for sharing who you are and what you love. I feel like this #makercommunity is a safe place to do that. You don't need to have a business or even have goals to start one. They're are no other requirements than to post a photo. It's as simple as that. .
If you have some encouraging words for Tammy or if this is also you, share it. Share your story. Let's show some #makerlove and encouragement. .
After completing my most recent two #art projects (you can see them two rows down in my feed), I decided to #challenge myself and see what I can do with my leftover #beads , rather than buying new ones in the colors I usually use. I was inspired by @jamfinearts and decided to learn some new techniques. Here is the beginning of my attempt to cover a vase with #sciart#beadwork . ⠀
Stay tuned and check out my blog post about this project (link in bio)!
