Just left the @qedastoria Summer Craft bazaar and totally treated myself to some adorable stuff from @monicafreisem, @metrixjewelry, @totes_cricket_lalou and @lather.on! The Bazaar is open till 5, go #treatyoself

As much as I love making stuff, I also love the friendships I've made with other makers. Like today I lead my first ever social media training for a group of six HIV community health centers πŸ™ŒπŸΌ and afterwards someone came up to me and asked where I got the ring I was wearing and I got to say "oh my friend Lisa made it!" (lisa=@metrixjewelry) Also loving my @unifiedqueens tee! Go support @metrixjewelry, @unifiedqueens and more Queens makers tomorrow at the @qedastoria Summer Craft Bazaar.

When you've been married for thirteen years sometimes you spend your date nights discussing how much fun your kids would have had if you brought them. @curtiss_gibson ✨✨

My pastor said yesterday that when people make racist or homophobic comments to us we should have the courage to say "I can't abide your bias." Thinking of all the biases that exist in a system that allowed a man to be choked to death on camera. For the the man who filmed him to be the only one to go to jail. For the officer who killed him to get a raise. Don't abide any biases today. Rest in Power Eric.

Three years after being choked to death by an NYPD cop, #EricGarner's life still matters. May we never forget to say his name in the fight for justice. #ICantBreath #BlackLivesMatter ✊🏿

Happy #gameofthrones day to all you people watching tonight. I'm personally not into the gore and incest I saw when I tried it years ago but as a knitter, #winteriscoming is a message I can get behind. πŸ“Ί πŸ˜‰

Sweetest moment ever at @queenscraftbrigade when fellow crafter @caustic.cross.stitch showed up with her #queensknits pink pussycat hat cozy and then bought a scarf πŸ™ thank you girl!! Check out her great embroidery on 6/22 at the @qedastoria summer craft bazaar!!

Thank you @juliatheknitter for coming to the @queenscraftbrigade and sharing this adorable shot! my resist cozies were the first thing I sold out of which makes me so happy. Some people say not to mix business and politics but that falsely assumes that politics is some separate sphere when it's not. It's the sphere that we all like live inside of... #notthebestwithwords #hopefullyyougetit #resist πŸ’˜

Um....never in a million years would I have believed you if you told me the DEBUT @queenscraftbrigade market would have been this busy. Thank you SO much to everyone for coming out and showing love! #queenscraft #mommydaughterdate πŸ“Έ by @netafeta

🚨 🚨 Unrelated caption alert: now that I've worked for almost three weeks and taken a day off here and there for school holidays I can report that working is approximately 400 trillion times easier? More enjoyable? Less maddening? than being with kids all day. Jeez I wish I'd done this earlier. I mean jeez. Like jeeeeeeeez.

Having one of those days so I'm just going to focus on that time yesterday when my daughter danced down fifth avenue alongside her church's Pride float #twerkforjesus #everybodydancenow

We've been members of @middlechurch for almost a decade but never joined in their epic #pride celebration. With the evil one in office threatening to undo all the hard fought victories we wanted to stand (dance) this year in solidarity with #lgbtq New Yorkers ❀️🌈 🎢 #happypride #pridesunday #middlechurch #nyc #loveislove
