The Imbolc '09 Issue of the AntiCraft is Up

My latest published work, Timeless Tunic, went live today. It's instructions for how to measure, draft, and sew your own custom-fit T-tunic. That handsome viking shown wearing the tunic is my best friend and long-suffering husband, James. No need for envy, ladies; I might be persuaded to share. ;)

The aftermath

So, the tie silk scarves were a big hit. I gave one to my boss, and both his wife and his son tried to abscond with it. The guys in my family were impressed with them, too. I still have a couple left, and I'll probably put them up in my Etsy store, as soon as I get around to photographing them. I'm thinking $30-$35 is a good price for a flannel lined silk scarf, yes?

I haven't completely finished any of the purses, though a couple of them just need the linings sewn in place, and the bead pulls made for the zippers. I have until Easter to finish them now, but I can't let myself procrastinate based on that. It just means I don't have to rush and panic over it.

Aside from having my car wrecked by someone who didn't look before they turned into my path, this holiday season has been pretty good for me. How was yours?
