Inspiration Board : embellished 'Saturday' napkins

Posted by

Our dear friends at Kate Spade 'Saturday' design many great things. I especially like their home collection.

I personalized them using a simple running stitch and let the graphic pattern inspire me (as I had done before for this story).

A perfect gift. Now, what do I buy for myself !?

Around Town : One of a Kind Show Chicago

Posted by


This weekend we’re heading to the One of a Kind show in Chicago.  We will be making finger knit necklaces  from the December issue of Living.  We will be at the Toyota Retreat (Saturday from 2pm to 4pm).   If you live in the area please come by and craft with us.   You will get to choose from various colors of glitter eyelash yarn from Martha Stewart Crafts by Lion Brand Yarn to create a one-of-a-kind piece.  Even better share it! All week long Toyota will be donating $3 to @After School Matters for every Tweet or Instagram post featuring #ToyotaGiving.
