I love hearing stories of how shops chose their name, so I thought I'd share our story! We've always been a crafty family, going through phases of cross stitch, sewing, knotting friendship bracelets, crochet, and countless other projects usually with my sister.💗After becoming a mom myself, I quickly realized that any time spent knitting or crocheting really feels like I'm stealing time away from some other task. So, when the time to name our shop came, 'StolenMinutes' just made sense. No matter if you're knitting some socks on the go, snuggled on the couch working on a sweater or passing the time at an appointment or music lesson, your making use of those StolenMinutes. And, really, isn't it those StolenMinutes that make life so much sweeter?💗What will you do with your StolenMinutes today?

Sooooo glad to have had an absolutely gorgeous first day of summer to steam press all the parts of the MidMitten Designs Two at a Time project bags for late summer and fall events.
With their zippered notions pocket serving as a divider, this style is perfect for anything that uses two colors (color work, multiple colors), or has two parts (two at a time socks, sleeves, fronts, etc.) Loom knitters love it for the wide base. Not using two yarns? The pocket slips to the side.
At the machine today, putting together a special order for a large drawstring bag using the customer's own material. She's a fan of Boston Terriers and coffee, so her two fabric choices reflect that. It's lots of fun seeing how our fabric choices reflect our individual personality!
I think it might be the farm kid coming out in me but this bag is to die for! 🐓 I like to call it an in between bag it's bigger than our medium and is perfect for those colour shawls that are multiple colours! Will be listed in the shop soon! •••

So- those of you who are regular followers are beginning to know that my mom was a very talented quilter, painter, seamstress etc... When she could no longer sew I inherited her fabric stash, which consisted largely of floral fabrics. Mom and I often consulted on our various quilting projects, but our tastes in both fabric and projects couldn't have been more different. This bag uses florals from her collection and a lining fabric from mine. If you scroll back through my feed and check out my other project bags you will easily see how different our tastes in fabric were. However, I LOVE that I used her fabrics for this bag, and she would have loved it, too. 😍
This bag is available for purchase. It's a large size bag- approximately 10" x 14". It will comfortably hold 3-4 skeins of yarn. #peggyjanefibers#knittingprojectbag#knittingbag#sewing#projectbag#alzheimers#mom

One of my favourite things to do when I was younger was watching the fire flies when my family would go camping. Even now as an adult, I still love going camping and seeing fire flies at night! I know I am definitely going to put a pair or two of socks to work on into this Drawstring Bag when I go camping in a few weeks. •••
This bag and others are to come to the shop Wednesday! Stay tuned for more! 🐞🌲
