It's been a pretty craptastic week.
So what's the cure?

Super awesomely crafty goodness.
"Flossy the Unicorn Embroidery Floss Bobbin" by sugarcookie

Just...awesome.  I would love to have a fleet of rainbow colored unicorns populating my craft room.





"KARMA- Handspun Wensleydale Yarn- 160 yards 8 plus ounces" by SpunRightRound

Everytime I think I'm going to give knitting a break (isn't it almost summer?), I find some beautiful yarn that tempts me back into stitchery. 






"VIntage Wooden Sewing Spools-Spool Party" by inmyigloo

My grandma had a drawer filled with spools and spools of colorful threads.  It was one of my favorite parts of her house.  These make me so happy.





"Group of Vintage Embroidery hoops" by found2donkeys

Look at these amazing shapes! 




"Kingsley Koala Hand Carved Stamp" by HandmadeBlayne

The cuteness of this little fella makes me want to 1) own him and 2) learn how to carve stamps. 
New hobby?

    Fantastic opening line.

    I'm holding out for the royal wedding and hoping that will be the cure all for everything.

    ... After that I might explore learning how to carve stamps (who knew?) ;)
