etsy shop unveiling

Hey, blog! Look at this!


Ruby Sparrow - my Etsy shop!



I finally decided to open this up to the public, if you will. It's been up for a month or so, and I've held off on promoting it much because I wanted to add some more things, but I thought, eh, might as well show off what I have now. I'm hoping to add some more things - more flower pins, some bracelet/cuff things, embroidered tea towels, more onesies - in the next couple weeks. I've sold one item already, which was a great experience. It's nice to make things for people, especially when they pay you cash money.

Enjoy! Buy things! haha.

What up?

Okay, okay. So I didn't post anything yesterday. But! I did finish hand one of Fetching. Behold:


The only quibble I might have with the pattern is that the picot-edge bind off is a little weird. I'm not sure that I like the effect it gives you...hm. Next pair I might skip that. But otherwise, they're turning out great. Now I gotta dig up the motivation to start the other one!

I also made an excellent shrimp, avacado and spinach salad with lime vinaigrette this week. Deliciousness!


Recipe can be found here!


And now, off to the beach!!

Delila the Wonder Cat

Hi blog!

Goodness, I've been neglectful in writing. Things have been slightly busy lately - we've had lots of out-of-town visitors and have been doing the touristy thing, I've been getting things together for classes starting back, and we're planning a mini-vacation to the beach. Oh, and I FINALLY GOT A JOB. Hooray!! Such good news, and it helps with tuition too. Whew. Things were looking a little dire there, finance-wise.

So, to celebrate, here are some photos of what my cat Delila has been up to lately:










Oh, she's so cute! I could just squeeze her little cheeks!

As far as craftiness, Ms Marigold is juuuuuuust about done. I have to finish the last sleeve. Why is the last 10% of a project always the hardest?!? I've also finished one hand warmer from Knitty's Fetching pattern. It's lovely, and a great pattern to follow. Pictures tommorow before I run off to the beach, I promise! Haha promising to post photos will force me to actually finish them.

Later!
