Despite not being very down in inventory, I decided to have a production day to add variety to my stock. It started out as me thinking, oh I'll just make a few today while I have some time.
Then I got going and decided I was having fun, so why not have some Chai and make some more.
Riley helped by pushing me off the sofa more than once. Ripley did too, but I didn't catch a picture of him doing it.
By mid afternoon I had opened new beads, fixed myself a tray of grapes and cheese, finished off the chai and was grooving at a pretty good pace.
By the time I needed to get up and get going for my evening plans I had made 15 new sets, which totaled 77 individual stitch markers. I have to admit, I still LOVE the giant pearl sets, the last couple of those sets got me a lot of compliments. And I like the clear bead sets for their clean looking style, although they are hard to photograph.
I am very excited about this coming weekend. I hope to sell lots but also to meet some great new fiber people. These events are always so much fun because of the sense of community among spinners and stitchers. I hope if you are in the area that you join us.
In honor of my super stitch marker production day, I am giving away a set of markers this week!! They are a set of medium markers with amber beads. They will fit up to a size 15 knitting needle comfortably. So here is how you enter:
