Being a woodworking hobbyist just starting out, this is my common place of work - just outside my garage on a weeknight after my day job. Couple projects on the go tonight! .
Where did you start? .
Omgoodness, what an amazing event @lauranelkin organized Saturday evening coordinated with her #knitithaca retreat at the Marriot on the commons (Ithaca). She opened the doors and invited the greater Ithaca community to come and spend an evening knitting and chatting with new and old friends.
Laura has been an amazing supporter of LocalFiber from her LocalFiber friendship swap to collaborating with local farmers and yarn designers who support their local fiber communities. She was gracious enough to invite LocalFiber to table at Knit Ithaca this year and share our story. Thank you Laura!
An additional shout-out to Anna @mecktastic for coming and helping by talking with folks who stopped by the LocalFiber table (and taking photos, including these). It was so great having you with us!
Finally I just want to mention that we did try to get some photos of the @ironwoodhillfarmstudios booth, but there was rarely a break from the mob that surrounded their lovely yarns. Teresa and Andy Fallon produce such beautiful Finn sheep yarns here in the Fingerlakes!
Can't wait for next year.🧡 #localfiberny#localfiber#knowthyfarmer#farmertomaker#flx#fingerlakes#cny#fingerlakesfiber#cnyfiber#makersgonnamake#naturalfiber#naturaltextile#localsupplychain#supportlocal#knittersofinstagram#igspinners#knitting
The cut out was not a renunciation of painting and sculpture; he called it “painting with scissors.” Matisse said, "Only what I created after the illness constitutes my real self: free, liberated.” He was too ill to continue painting, so he lay in bed, cut out shapes and told his assistants how to arrange them. He always found a way to adapt, create and move forward. #makersgonnamake#henrimatisse
One fun thing about being a business owner? Being your IT department when your tech challenged 😂🤷🏼♀️

Hello all of our new friends around here 👋🏻
My name is Morgan and I’m your “head honcho” here at the Trailing Collective! I am a painter at heart but absolutely fell in love with slinging mud on the potter’s wheel when I was in college. And, well, after living in the dirt of the Appalachian Trail for six months, there’s just nothing I wanted to do more than pursue pottery + create a business that’ll hopefully grow to include many artists, students and friends throughout the course of my existence! These days I’m usually found painting landscapes or gnomes on mugs because it marries all of my passions together. My dry shampooed curly mess of hair is either hiding under a wide brimmed hat or thrown on the top of my head in a bun. I’m a lover of all things cold weather related and obviously am the proud owner of the most awkward hands (pictured) 😂 I’m so glad to have you all around here and I have loved interacting with all of you in some form or fashion along the way 💗🌿
This is a true confessions post 😳. Im not gonna lie. I was putting my sections together and thinking that my ‘I am enough ‘ block wasn’t working. It was too large. Then I remember cutting it larger to trim down to the exact size. Somewhere along the creativity path I lost my way and forgot to trim it and I embroidered WAY outside the 9.5” width. Woe is me. Well, as you can see I just whacked it off. I lost a heart and a couple of cute flowers, but I don’t want to embroider it again. On the upside, my work for this episode of the I Am Enough QAL is completed. Yay. @havels_sewing @southerncharmquilts thank you, again, for this lovely qal. It’s a blast. #iamenoughquiltalong#havelssewing#calledtobecreative#doitfortheprocess#creativelifehappylife#makesomething#makersgonnamake#sewing#ilovemylife#homesweethome#home

Thank you so much for joining me here on this new work account! Here you'll find information about new knitwear designs and handmade products being released as well as sneak peaks into my design process over on my stories, thanks for coming along on this adventure with me! 🌾
There are very few people for whom I would knit in black, my husband being one of them. So when he wanted a new black hat for the winter, I whipped up a simple black hat over the weekend (does that still count for my #weekofwips ?) and I’m sewing in the ends tonight. This was a “free-knit” for me, and I went without a pattern, which makes me think I may make a foray into fall/winter accessory design at some point soon. What are your favorite things to make for others (or yourself 😉) in terms of accessories for the winter months? #cozyknits
