My New Best Friend.

It's garden gloves. The garden gloves I bought to pull down sheetrock with are my new best friend when quilting. Three dollars, and they have changed my entire life. Seriously. Get some garden gloves.
Yesterday turned out to be a pretty productive day, quilted a baby quilt for the shop, finished two bags, painted a plate, and (re)made a quilty scarf. Back soon, I have lots of Christmas projects in the works.

More Stuff.

I'm trying to be a holiday factory over here, and failing miserably. Who knew crayon rolls were so time consuming? Not me, is the answer. But, aside from my crayon roll failures, bowls and scarves have been produced for the etsy. I'm helping rip down a friend's sheetrock tomorrow, wish me luck! (I have a poor safety record...)

Orange, Green, and Gray Quilt.

Sorry these are not good photos, but in my defense, the light here lately has been lame. Today was much better, but I didn't think to re-shoot these terrible photos I took on Sunday. This quilt is just a simple tie- quilt, made to rest on the back of our couch, and on top of people. It seems, however, that it most commonly resides wadded up, under the four-legged members of the household. What can I say. If I was a better person, I would iron it to take photos, but, I am not.

Scarf Day

Well. I'm glad I'm not the only person with woodland creatures living in my head. Should we start a support group, do you think? Moving on, today is scarf day. We have a lot of scarves here in the Hunt household. I'm guessing, and this is conservative, that we own approximately 12 home made scarves. I wear different scarves the way that most people wear different shoes, which is good that something is varied, because, I am lazy and I wear the same nasty shoes everyday. Anyway, another reason we have such a surplus of scarves is because when I started sewing, they were the first thing I made that anyone liked. Not that people didn't PRETEND to like the other things I made, but, honestly, it was pretty obvious. Anyway, I had put aside my scarfmaking for a few years, but the weather has been miserable lately, and so I have started sewing up some new scarves. Not to everyone's liking, but extremely soft and warm! So, this is the first of several I'll be posting on etsy in the next few days, hope you guys like them!

Finally I finished some of the bowls that have been sitting around my house half painted for, oh, 4 months? Yay, me, yay, etsy.

Few Things Can Get Me Out of the House By 6am.

Looking forward to a night of sarcastic election coverage, and big, fancy maps.

Chalkboards and Wool Coats.

I apologize if I have nothing very Halloweeny to share today, I was a bit lame this year and didn't do anything special except order pizza and buy candy for the holiday. I did spend several hours yesterday getting paid to... draw on a chalkboard? It was for a photo shoot for my former boss, and it was quite fun. This morning I woke up and saw the adorable jacket Rachel made for Stimpy, and I was swept with a wave of guilt. Poor Rufus didn't get dressed up for Halloween, and he has no dapper jacket! So I downloaded this pattern and made a little wool coat for Rufus too. Now the boys just need to have a playdate so they can compare their swank new jackets!
