Since blogger is weird about letting me post from my phone, I haven't been updating nearly as often as I'd like. I have, however, been updating my Ravelry profile with all sorts of things I've been knitting and crocheting lately -- go here and see what I've been working on!

Wickedfaire is less than two weeks away! I've been furiously crafting to make sure I'm ready...given how busy we are at work, I doubt I'll be as ready as I'd like to be! Lots of jewelry, but some new goodies too, as you can see below....
Hopefully I won't be bringing ANYTHING home! (If I do, it will of course be offered in my Etsy shop.)
I'm also going to be offering custom-made corsets when I'm there...I love doing corsets, so I hope Fairegoers get as excited as I am! I'll be offering both over- and under-bust styles, in a variety of colors and prints...with the option of completely custom designs!
Below is some of my past work -- something even more amazing could be yours!

We were given tickets (Phil's birthday gift) to a Next Iron Chef event being held in conjunction with Food Network's NY Food and Wine Festival in October. All of Iron Chefs and contestants had booths with a sample of their work...with only a few very notable exceptions, it was, as you would expect, amazing! I had the camera (and a lot of the pictures I had to doctor -- the lighting was awful), so lots of photos of Phil and the chefs -- his deal, so I'm ok with it! (We know he's the more photogenic of the two of us, anyway.)
|Phil with Iron Chef Forgione|
|Us with Alton Brown!|
|Phil with...Elizabeth Falkner? I think?|
|Chef Appleman at work|
|Phil with the original, Iron Chef Morimoto!|
|Phil with Giada -- we spotted her in the crowd and I made him bother her.|
|Phil with Chef Guaranchelli -- Spoiler alert, she won.|
|Phil with his choice for winner, Chef Mehta. Not pictured: my choice, Chef Mehndelsohn.|
|Morimoto at work|
|Phil with Iron Chef Zakarian (who was handing out pink bandaids from a tub large enough to drown in)|
|We pose with their promo|
|The back room where the Iron Chefs were set up -- you can barely see how packed the room was.|
