Rune Set – this is a set of wooden Rune discs that I cut, sanded, and woodburned. I made the large pouch from some fabric I wove last year and some wool felt I had on hand. The Rune cards I made with some on-hand scrapbooking cardstock, and the small pouch for the cards I crocheted, no pattern, using some leftover Berroco Remix and a D hook. Drawstrings were chained out of leftover Remix as well.

Moon Phase Quilt Table Topper – This is a 5×5 square quilt top made with fabric from a Robert Kaufman Artisan Batik charm pack, and also some similarly colored Sit ‘n Sew squares (non-sparkle). The backing was Robert Kaufman Batik Sorrento Handpaint Evening. Fabric was from fabric.com. I used the non-sparkle squares underneath the sparkle squares in the spots where I was going to be doing the reverse applique. I hand stitched the quilted moon phases using Coats & Clark metallic embroidery thread from Joanns. I didn’t use a pattern for this project.

Spell Jar Necklace – I found some small bottle pendants at Walmart. I added some dried chamomile flowers (for rest and relaxation), lavender (for calmness), and a small piece of amethyst (for peace). The rest of the beading supplies and findings I had on hand.

41:25 – Shop News

Update on my shop schedule; bare yarn I’ve been able to get in; still some Dyer’s Secret Stash goodies and Rain Clouds & Tie Dye left from last update.

I’ll be out of the studio from 8/26 – 30. Any orders placed during that time will ship out as soon as I get back, beginning on 8/31. Because I’ll have spotty cell service, email replies may also be delayed until I get back.
