Cynchronicity Live September 26, 2011

Last night’s Cynchronicity Live Webtv Show was all about raiding the sewing room to make some cute jewelry from fabric scraps, beads, buttons, and zippers!

Cynchronicity Live: Spin me a Yarn


Thank you so much to everyone who joined me last night for the premiere of Cynchronicity Live webtv show! I’ve missed you all so much and was so happy to be back sharing creativity with you.

If you weren’t able to join us, here’s the playback link for the show:  Cynchronicity Live Episode 1


The shows will encompass everything from art techniques to craft projects to cooking to home decor and more!  Last night, I got a head start on holiday gifts by breaking out the yarn stash and creating a couple of cute projects.


I shared a Saori weaving technique I first heard about on Gingerbread Snowflakes to make this mug rug.  I’m making some of these to go along with cup wrappers and then I’ll include some of my home made tea, coffee, and scone mixes as well as chocolate dipped spoons.  The above is for my daughter and along with what I’ve already mentioned, I’m going to include a tea tray, a teapot cozy, and some jars of my homemade peach butter (her favourite) and raspberry preserves.


I also demonstrated how to do corking (French knitting, using a knitting Nancy), including making your own corker.  There are so many things you can make with this method but I’m starting with some hot pads for my daughter’s new kitchen.

Be sure to have a look at the replay for all the details.  I’d love for you to join me every week for Cynchronicity Live on Monday nights at 9 pm Eastern in the Creative EdVentures chat room.
