Hello! Welcome to the July Crafty Love Link Party #23, hosted by Marie Segares and me. I’s so fun watching the party grow. We have tons of knit and crochet, but we could use more other crafts.

Be sure to share this link party with all your crafty friends so they can link up as well, and find new and fun craft projects around the web. Every month, the Crafty Love Link Party will open up on the first Thursday at 1:00 a.m. Eastern and close on the last Thursday at 11:55 p.m. Eastern. Share your latest crafts projects, patterns, tutorials, tips, and WIPS, and be sure to stop by and leave comments on other projects, too! Here are the 5 most clicked links from last month.

Hello my Blogland friends! I hope you had a lovely Holiday season and your New Year is starting out well. I have some pictures of our holidays to share with you.

This summer I had the pleasure of reading The Secret Stitch by C.Jane Reid. When I first picked it up I was a little worried as it is “fiber fiction” and sometimes books written around hobbies aren’t the greatest. I was very happy to discover that C. Jane Reid is really wonderful author!

This past Sunday I went on the NYC Yarn Crawl with my awesome friends Marie of Underground Crafter and Amy of The Stitchin’ Mommy. We weren’t able to hit all the stores on the crawl, as we just had one day, but we had a great time at the stores we did hit.

Our first store was School Products Yarn. I didn’t snap any photos at that store,  but I got some at the rest.

Our second stop was Annie & Company.
