Finding Success in Failure

On Friday, I shared an idea I had for this year's stitching and over the weekend I swatched a bit with less than stellar results. So, I spun a bit more to see if I could improve the "thready-ness" of the yarn. I stitched with more tightly plied yarn. I stitched with...

Unraveled Wednesday, November 15

Hello Unravelers! I am sorry this post is so late today, but I have been working on a new project which has been consuming lots of my "brain time" as well as available hours in the day time. Now, this is not at all a bad thing and I feel very blessed and so excited to...
