Hexie testing

I have way too many unfinished projects right now.

Toe beans are coming!

My Mondays have been really Garfieldian lately, so my calendar has been knocked badly askew but I’m getting back on track. I owe the Ko-Fi folks an early-access mini-plushie, and...

Etsy strike?

Apparently there's an Etsy strike happening next week.

Still fighting with computers

I really need to get the new zipper pouch design up, but late last night I realized I had the forum on a giant DigitalOcean droplet when really I need...

Jekyll

If you’re seeing this, the blog software has been changed over. The layout is still a work-in-progress, the categories and tags need a lot of cleanup, and I’m still getting...

Software changeover

At some point this weekend I’m going to switch the blog software, so things may not respond quite right until the switch is finished. The forum at talk.silverseams.com will not...

Reminder

Today is the last day to qualify for the first drawing. I’ve sent out the invitations to the new system, so if you were subscribed to the newsletter or posts-by-mail...

Gingerbread dragons

It’s the time of year when my embroidery goes from “nerdy” to “mainstream” for the most part, as I switch to gift-making. I’ve been wrapping that up with a bunch...

Dice and dragons

The 2021 calendars are getting a bit of an upgrade: prettier boxes, some larger spaces, and yes, this year they’ll include a dragon. I mean, several dragons, but most of...

It is countdown calendar time again

For the last couple years, I’ve sold dice countdown calendars. I’ve got the dice to do it again, eight calendars’ worth, but I am trying to decide if I’m going...

The mini-comp cover revised, and hatching a dragon

The ongoing project to bring all the freebies up to current Ink/Stitch standards continues with the revision of the Mini Composition Book Cover. I had a request to restock the...

Doing the boring part

I’ve had a pile of receipts accumulating on my desk, and I don’t really have the excuse of needing to restock anything urgently. It was time to get everything entered...

Doing business in New Jersey

It’s official!

Inkscape and Ink/Stitch

I got an early Christmas present (or maybe a very late one, since I have been pricing them out for a year): a Brother PE800 embroidery machine. If you follow...

We’re back in business!

Many years ago, Silver Seams was a little business, which didn't make much money but kept me busy during my toddler's naps.
