Been locked up for so long, started knitting for my booze! The pattern is the Wine Bottle Sweater by Karla Lockwood. The hats were made by casting on the neck count and just going from there. These are a fun project and people really enjoyed receiving them! Putting this one away for next fall While… Continue reading Wine Bottle Sweaters
Framing is expensive
Done in colored pencils by me at least 5 years ago, it was time to frame it. A large piece at @24", I went to a local framing shop to support small businesses during this time and was shocked by the cost. I've had things framed before, but this seemed unreal. Since my husband loves… Continue reading Framing is expensive
More gnomes… Why not?

Found some wood turnings in my stash and just painted them in a vintage way. They're odd, but I think they sorta work on the mantle.
Myrna Mouse Goes to Dublin
Well, I did it. I finally made a toy and I am in LOVE with her. She traveled with me to visit family in Dublin and she's hoping to go again in March. She was a pattern from Little Cotton Rabbits and I am sure I'll be making her some cousins. This project was part… Continue reading Myrna Mouse Goes to Dublin

I like to… Continue reading Well Dressed Whiskey
Back home, safe and sound
I'm home from my recent trip north to visit my sister and her family. We had a nice time making paper craft tags and packaging for my Etsy shop. My sister is VERY good at things like this, so I was very grateful for the help. My ideas flourish in fluffy fibers, while her's do… Continue reading Back home, safe and sound
Autumn Baby Gifts
Recently, a friend asked if I would make a blanket for a "Black & White themed baby room, but with a touch of orange" and then make a "pumpkin sack and cap" for this new little sweetie pie. Here are the finished pieces...
”Master gave Zoey clothing.”
It's true - Zoey is a free house elf now! Since we moved the sofa away from the front window to make room for the Christmas tree, we have let her roam free a few times when we go out. Here is our sweet little Miss in her pink sweater.
You may remember Zoey, our sweet little rescue dog who loves my knitting (she's showed her love for it many times over). Remember her? Well, I knit her this great little felted leash pattern in many colors of Cascade 220 so she could be even more beautiful out for her walks. I have a top… Continue reading Zoey’s leash
