And I forgot to mention the sale on awesome colorful tea towels in the video! There are perfect for stitching and giving as inexpensive handmade gifts and they’re all 20% off this week. More details here.
That fairy is the new Ami Club pattern for the month. Isn’t she adorable? I was so tickled when she was finished that I had to go out and photograph her in some greenery and flowers. And I loved the photo so much that I had to make it my desktop wallpaper for the month! 🙂

Find all the Safari patterns here. The Safari Craft-Along will run for August and September, so you’ve got lots of time to stitch up some elephants and lions and zebras and rhinos and hippos and more.
Whoops! I misspoke here. The Safari Craft-Along will actually just be running in September, but you’re welcome to get a jump on making now. 🙂
I mentioned a bunch of free patterns that could be used with single block patterns – pillow covers and tote bags and placemats and bibs and Christmas stockings and more. You can find all of these here.
We just wrapped up a Beach Craft-Along so I had swimming on the brain – and decided I needed to make a water buffalo for this month’s Ami Club pattern.
A water buffalo who can’t swim yet, so he needs a swim ring. 🙂
I was so tickled with the results that I decided to make him this month’s calendar. 🙂
(I named my water buffalo Walter after my grandfather. That’s why he has the super high-waisted swim trunks. That was the fashion in my grandpa’s day. 🙂 You can, of course, switch to buffalo-colored yarn a few rows before I did if you want your buffalo to look a little more contemporary.)

Remember Hayley Hippo? She was the Ami Club pattern back in February and she’s such a sweetie! She’s small, so super-fast to stitch up – and I love her dress. I made mine with self-striping yarn for extra fast and easy stitching.
