I struggled to pick the perfect quilting design for this quilt and threw my first few renditions away. I persevered though and eventually came up with some both I and my client love. It’s going to be a fun background that is going to make all those little 1” squares pop and has been so fun to quilt. Quilt top by @onelaststitch. #gammillquilting
Made a bag to carry all my stuff to the local game shop for our Monday D&D game. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On the front are the names of our characters and DM and on the back is a logo I made for our party, the Lollipop Guild, with things that represent each of the characters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Will probably start selling these through my @arcanesundries account in October. Would people be interested in this type of thing for their own parties?
Repost from @ladydyeyarns using @RepostRegramApp - I’m highlighting more BIPOCs in this community who have businesses and doing amazing things. Check out @bipocinfiber and @bipocmakers for a more complete list. This current group represents bipoc indie dyers in the community. I know there’s more please tag in this post. I want to let you know that I’m working with Jasmine from @knitmoregirls on a project that sprung out of my live instagram video I did last night. More info coming later on but it will involve BIPOC designers and dyers.
We need to continue to move this conversation forward with action. I’ll say this again, until it’s firmly understood: “IF PEOPLE WHO ARE INFLUENCERS, MAJOR CORPORATIONS, YARN STORES ARE NOT SUPPORTING YOU AND THE WORK WE ARE DOING IN THIS COMMUNITY TO MAKE IT MORE DIVERSE AND INCLUSIVE, WHY BUY FROM THEM? It’s time to flip the script, turn the tables, whatever you want to call it. Spend your money where you see people adding value, voice, humility, advocacy, to this Fiber community and the positive changes we are looking to make in this industry. .
This list is just a template share it, buy from this group of talented individuals, support our businesses and causes.
We still have slots open for our Rhinebeck Craft Club and I’m still crowdfunding for my Rebel with a Cause 2020 Project. Click link in bio and learn more. If you can please support my crowdfunding campaign, sign up for my Rhinebeck Craft Club collaborations with other BIPOCs. As well as the Badass Craftivism Club which only has three more weeks until sign ups end. . .

Craft: Recycling Old Crayons🎨
1. Remove the wrapping from each crayon. This is the tedious part. You could have your little one help out with this task. 😄
2. Preheat oven at 250F (130C)
3. Break each crayon into little pieces. The exact size does not matter, as they will all melt. See photo for example.
4. Fill each pod of your Kiddo Feedo Freezer Tray about 3/4 of the way. A little more is okay.
5. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the crayons have melted completely to liquid form.
6. Remove from oven, and place in freezer for about 5 minutes or until solid.
Do not freeze the crayons for too long, as they can crack and break apart during use. Also, feel free to change things up by mixing and matching the colours prior to baking, to create multicolored crayons. Have fun! 🌈

El fin de semana se estrenó la academia de vloggers en Kidzania 😍 Me emociona ser parte de proyectos como este que inspiran a los más pequeños 💜 Este es el espacio donde grabamos el video que van a ver todos los niños cuando entren a la academia. Si le hubieran dicho esto a la Liz de hace 10 años jamás se lo hubiera creído. Gracias por hacernos soñar y ayudarnos a cumplir nuestros sueños @gazer73
