The goings on

It's a little late, but I wanted to show off my goodies from the flat rate box swap #7. My swap partner spoiled me rotten. Starting in the upper left and going clockwise-ish, first we have a whole pile of wedding scrapbook stickers, which will definitely come in handy when I get organized enough to begin scrapbooking the wedding. There was also a stick of Martha Stewart craft glue and a LOVE picture frame, which already has a picture in it and is at my office. Next we have a shiny blue pencil case that will definitely used for hauling knitting paraphernalia, a little mug with a bride and groom on it, 2 rope bones for my puppies, a skein of cotton ease, 2 balls of bamboo and 3 skeins of Cot-lin. (love it all) Then there is the adorable knit bag, the lavender candle, the crocheted washcloth, green tea, soak wool wash, funky paper clips and buttons!!!! She really managed to stuff a ton in there. Thank you so much, crazyhappyknitter!!!!

Next, I spent some more time making stitchmarkers. I still love these stamped orange beads, they make for pretty stitchmarkers.
And I found these cool purple glass beads that look great with some purple pearls I had laying around. Both the orange above and the purple below are mediums, so they fit needles up to a size 15 US.
I've been having a lot of fun with bead combos.
Another awesome find, at least to my mind, were these cool ceramic green beads. I love the way they look as markers.

And last but not least we have another set of large markers, clear this time. I could easily make myself a million sets of stitch markers and be happy keeping them all, but at some point I suppose it gets excessive.

There are actually more, but I can't put a gazillion pictures in this post and still expect it to upload. It's very exciting that Farm Girl Fiber will actually be carrying SomerKnits stitchmarkers both at shows and on Etsy. Yes, I know I could have my own Etsy store, but I'm just not that serious. Yet. Who knows, maybe someday I will be. I want to see how everything goes this fall. Between Indie Emporium, the Etsy shop, and Fiber Extravaganza, hopefully both Bridgette and I will do well in the sales department. The Etsy shop is supposed to be back up and running by September 1st, so go here and check it out.
