Preview for Hearts and Crafts

Spent the day at the market buying too many pounds of potatoes, taking photos, helping my friend weave her first scarf and watching 30 rock. Tomorrow I'll weave...

Hearts and Crafts Show for Valentine's!

I'm excited to say pidgepidge's second craft show is coming up in just a few weeks!
Here are the details for Hearts and Crafts:

Sunday, February 7, 2010
11:00am - 5:00pm
Java's Cafe in Rochester, NY
16 Gibbs Street
Happy to be a part of a show one week before Valentine's and to be testing out some jewelry creations.. These are photos from other Christmas presents I gave this year. I had intended to use them as templates for a few styles to offer on my etsy shop. They have turned into an inspired starting off point. I have 10 necklaces complete and, like the scarves, no two are alike. I guess I just love experimenting with color combinations and texture contrasts no matter the medium.

New Scarf and sneak peak

The latest scarf in the shop inspired by a Gap commercial, of all things.. Below was my sister's Christmas present and a sneak peak of another section of the pidgepidge shop I'll be adding in a few weeks (trying out at the Hearts and Crafts show in February).

Rachel's Purse

Show and tell... I loved making this purse- my first major sewing project (besides quilting) using upholstery fabric with a lovely shiny ocean blue lining.

Sea Glass Scarf

This scarf reminds me of picking sea glass off the beach with a warm sun on my back!

Handwoven Gray and Red Scarf

I'm in Buffalo for the weekend visiting family for a belated Christmas. So excited I could bring my laptop- freedom!
Can't wait to finally share photos of the gifts I made this year. In fact- I might just now..

Here's the 2nd scarf this week- I'll be sad when I run out of what seems like my never ending supply of recycled sweater yarn.

New Peacock Scarf

It was practically balmy today. 38! I had a sunny morning- too many slices of french toast too mention (an embarrassing 6? spread out through the day...ok?)- took my photos for the next 6 scarves, helped my friend, Sam, get a new kitten, ate french toast...

Here's the first in the series.

Productive Weekend

Here are a few pics of the scarf I made for my friend, Amy. The red is super soft baby alpaca and silk. I had a great weekend and wove 4 scarves.. all gearing up for a craft show coming up in Rochester at Java's coffee. Also working on another project to expand the pidge pidge shop.

Happy New Year!

Had an awesome new year's party complete with tasty goodies, orange tangerine mimosas, great friends, a raucous sing along and lots of laughter. Albert and I are still in clean-up mode and are happily finishing all the chocolate left behind. Yesterday I wove 2 scarves- this handsome guy and another for my friend, Amy, who taught me letterpress. I went on another yarn spree- lots of new goodies for my paint box.

The olive green is super soft organic cotton!
