stash and burn excitement

I am thrilled that Stash and Burn chose to interview me for their 50th podcast episode. Jenny and Nicole’s relaxed style made me feel right at home. I think I really sound like “me”. Check it out. 

I like blog posts with pictures, so here’s a photo of a tiny bit of my stash.  Who knew I was so color co-ordinated?  I must be on a kick.


There’s Keltic and Memoirs and Ultra Alpaca Light  (my current favorite) and Ultra Alpaca.  I am very proud of my yard sale, danish modern candle holder. I also love, love, love the cool vase my brother gave me for Christmas,  hand made in Yellow Springs, Ohio.

    What a great still life! Hmm… Were you in Seattle in the spring of 2002? Did you get the danish candleholder at MY yard sale? I’m sure I de-stashed one just like that before a move…. :-O

  2. It was great, and I felt the same way! I was like, “oh man, I wanna live in the Bay Area so we can be BFF!”

    Pottery excites me almost as much as yarn. So of course I had to search a little – is this the artist?

    Funny how Yellow Springs was the town just written up for their knitted tree cozies.

  8. I loved the Stash & Burn episode, those girls are great. I still think your life sounds glamorous =;) Thanks for the insight into designing, it’s great how well you and Marjorie compliment each other’s style. Congrats on finishing John’s sweater and that gorgeous blanket!

  9. Lovely photo. I especially love the candleholder. My husband is Danish and we travel there every year or two, and I am quite fond of Danish design. I am pretty sure I have seen that candleholder at Illums Bolighus or one of the other home stores in Denmark. If you got it at a yard sale, I would probably faint at what a bargain you must have gotten. That stuff is not cheap (but will always be beautiful). My mom taught me it’s rude to ask what you paid, but I AM curious.

    I do love all those colors together. Maybe someday I’ll be able to mix and match like that. In the meantime, I’m glad there are people at my LYS that are better at it than I am!

    Thanks for sharing such beautiful things.
