Fiber Is My Bag

Whatever your dream…make it happen!

Whacha up to?

Greetings to One and All!

Well there’s one saying that my Mom’s Dad, my Bedstefra (grandfather) would say, “Change is something you can always depend on. Nothing will stay the same.” Well that’s my life. If you want to make GOD laugh, tell HIM your plans.

Well everyone knows that 2020 sucks. I was laid off from the 2 jobs I was working 70 hours a week. My DBF Mom, ended up in the hospital on Wed., June 3rd with a heart issue. If it wasn’t for me pushing the doctor to check her heart, she would have been dead by Saturday. Word to the wise…if someone says they can’t catch their breath or they are having a hard time breathing…get them to the ER immediately. Now Mom is doing well and I’m keeping an eagle eye on her and Dad who had dementia.

So in between losing my jobs and now. I’ve been busy. I’ve started writing knitting and quilting patterns again. There will be a 2020 NYE Mystery Quilt where? Right here! The fabric requirements will be posted early November. The written and video clues will be posted here on New Year’s Eve morning.

Recently a 26# bundle of undyed yard ended up on my doorstep all the way from the UK. It is some of the most luxuriously soft wool yarn that I’ve every come across. You know that some colors need to go on that yarn. And yes, they will be for sale.

I’ve taken online courses on how to do You Tube videos. I’ve spent more money on camera and equipment this summer than I have for the last 2 decades. If you told me 10 years ago that I would be filming, editing and uploading videos to You Tube, I would have told you that you were NUTS. Yesterday, I’ve just uploading my 4th video to You Tube on 26# of undyed yarn that I’ve received from the UK. This is some of the softest wool that I’ve touched. I’m an aspie. I don’t like anything scratchy. The way I figure it, if I don’t like it neither would my customers. My channel is Susie Rose Designs. Here’s my first video. You got to start somewhere.

TTFN! That’s Ta Ta For Now!

Help Make the Worlds Largest Christmas Stocking

Help make the world's largest Christmas stocking.

Help make the world’s largest Christmas stocking.

To all the knitters and crocheters out there, here’s a way you can help some kids out for Christmas.  Yes, I’ve checked the calendar…it’s June.  Here’s the skinny.  Caron United and joined forces with Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation to make the Worlds Largest Christmas Stocking.  For every skein of Caron yarn, 15 cents will be donated to the Children of Fallen Patriots.  After everything has been completed.  The stocking will be disassembled and the blankets will be given to military charities.

Doing something like this isn’t so foreign to me.  Many years ago I participated in another Worlds Largest stocking.  Here’s the skinny on that endeavor.
