diy cross stitch iphone case

All Finished!  I blogged a couple weeks ago about my new iPhone case from Connect Design; here is the finished design.  It came out great; if anyone is interested in the pattern or thread colors, please let me know...I'll scan my scribble scratch.

New Yarn Line From Martha Stewart

I am super excited over Lion Brand Yarn's partnership with Martha Stewart Crafts, creating a new (and beautiful) line of yarn!  It is now available at JoAnn's and should become available where ever Martha Stewart Crafts are purchased.  Take a look at these lovelies:
