3 days of week 7 of the Mystery Stitchalong and a foray into baking...

Day 19

Day 20 - My twins birthday! We had the family birthday celebration, and I spent the morning baking their cakes and a double batch of brownies for their School Fall Fest. I forgot to take a picture of the pristine cakes; this picture is after 10 people attacked them.

I worked on 99 every day and got a third of the way through plus a little more.

I worked on my bracelet on days 17 and 18. I found a clasp that I liked, looked at random sites for attaching clasps to bracelets, and used a method that I found for one end. I then realized that it was going to be way too long with that clasp and would fall off of my wrist, so I don't know if I'm going to remove rows or find another clasp or remove the clasp and call it a bookmark instead.

I had a nice surprise this week - a big order of Instagram cards came through my Etsy shop, so I was busy making them. The listing is for three random cards, but in this case the customer wanted to choose and I was totally fine with it. I had half of their picks already in stock, but I had to run out and order more prints.

Last year I ended up designing some cardmaking rulers and had them laser cut. They are 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 1" widths. It makes it totally easy to slap a photo on a card and not worry about it being crooked!

Optional: If you would like your secret's fandom to be noted in the main post along with the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret. If your secret makes the fandom obvious, there's no need to do this. If your fandom is obscure, you should probably tell me what it is.

Optional #2: If you would like WARNINGS (such as spoilers or common triggers -- list of some common ones here) to be noted in the main post before the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret.

Optional #3: If you would like a transcript to be posted along with your secret, put it along with the link in the comment!
