peek a boo!

hi everyone! so sorry to have missed you yesterday, blogging from the road is trickier than i thought it would be! but i'll make it up to you today. promises.  it's my first time as a guest blogger, and i'm pretty excited to be making my guest blogging debut over on versus! yep.. pretty excited. :) for those of you unfamiliar with versus, (and you really won't be for long).... it is a virtual boxing match between sewing and knitting. i'll let you guess which side of the ring i'm on ;) but sewing really is growing in my books!!

i was really excited when shannon of luvinthemommyhood decided to create this new space to duke sewing and knitting out. i am a lucky girl that shannon is one of my good friends, who shares my crazy love of knitting, and coffee :) and even crochet! not all knitters are also crocheters... (as you know), and it's pretty nifty to be able to share a love for many different crafts with friends.. don't you think? she's even getting me more excited about sewing! and encouraged me through my fears of sewing my bag!

but boy do i feel pretty special that shannon asked me to be a guest blogger on versus! and this is where your pressie comes in!!! i've got a great tute to share with ya :)
and it's neither knitting or sewing ;) it's a fabulous crocheted coaster! oh yeah.

meet jardain.

such a cute, and fun coaster. i had a lot of fun designing this project, and i hope you have a ton of fun making them too! it adds such a great pop of colour to your table, and your bevies will love them too.

this is a super easy coaster to make, and will give you some instant gratification... for the full tutorial, head on over to versus. and once you've made them, i'd love to see a pic of them! send me a link to your projects in the comments section, and we can all have a peek!

are you both a sewer and knitter, as i'm turning out to be? how about crochet? have you seen the versus mag? i'd love to hear about some of your completed, or works in progress... or dreams to make things. :) leave a note, and let's chat!

  3. I JUST signed up for the beginner quiltign class at Cloth Castle because I've wanted to learn to quilt forever and never got off my butt to learn on my own. I'll be in the September session and am SOOOOO excited!

    PS. I made sure to pass along that reading about your classes at CC inspired me to search out quilting ones there too :)

  4. Sarah-Mae that is soooo awesome! i hope i can bump into you sometime while you're there!!!! can't wait to see what quilting you'll be doing. i'm sure it will be beautiful! and it will look ah-mazing in your new cottag-y home :)
