Well it has been way too long since I have written on this blog!  So sorry about that!  Life has been happening I guess and also, I truly find it hard to write about myself ---- why would anyone want to know about what I am doing!!!!!

Well, I have been 'doing' a lot of knitting and will happily show a few pictures of the fingerless gloves I have created.  These designs are totally my own, totally.  Invented in my studio with lots of bits and pieces of yarns left over from other projects.  They are for sale in my Etsy shop.  I hope you enjoy seeing them!

I also have been making journals.  Friends have given my their old wool clothes and wool remenants, not to mention their vintage buttons!  Fun, Fun, Fun!!!  These are also in my Etsy shop.  Take a peak!

Here are some pictures to wet your curiosity.

Some have beads,
                                                                             some don't.
 Some are shades of one color, 
                                                         some are multicolored. 

All are made from my custom, 
                                              personal designs.

So, what do  you think?  Do you like them?

A few days ago I saw a picture in a magazine that just sent me over the wall.  I had to try to make these things.  And so I did.  So, a bit of trial and error, here they are, a bit different than the pictures I saw ---- they are my version of the picture, not a copy of someone else's idea.  The 'art deco' look is a design I have always liked and had doodled it over the years.  This is the first knitting I have tried with the design.

This past spring I received  a wonderfully big order for my knit items ----- Fingerless Gloves and Leg Warmers!  I have one month left to complete the order 21 leg warmers to go --- here is a photo of the stash so far!!!!!  Amazing -- to me at least !!!!  Crazy!!!

And then there is the order for 24 Recycled Fabric Covered Journals.  Here are three so far and then here is a picture of some of the fabulous buttons which go on the journals and then the stash of wool fabrics used to create the covers!  



So, work, work, work!  Fun Too!!!!  If you are interested in any of these items, check out my Etsy Shop.  There are some other items there also, but not any of the new things.  Those are all spoken for but feel free to drop me a note about what you would like, color, etc and I will help you out!  It is very good to be so busy but I have a new grand baby and would love to make her something but --------- no time!!!!!    I do dearly love my customers however and those returning customers!!!!  Wow!!!!!  So great!!!!!!

Hi there!  It has been a long stretch between blog writings!  Well, a lot has been going on, just regular living and holidays, travels, company in between.  And then, of course there is knitting, creating journals and finding a new interest (I need to stop!!!) in making some Sugar Lip Scrubs.

The journals are easy to photograph. The knitting? Not so much.  The Cowls and Boot Toppers work well with the camera but not the Fingerless Gloves or Leg Warmers.  And of course the Sugar Lip Scrubs photos well.

So here are a few pictures to encourage you to shop at my Etsy shop.  Stop in and see -- perhaps some good ideas for Graduation presents, Mother's Day gifts, Father's Day gifts, Journals for travelers, and on and on. Etsy ! The place to shop!!!

And now back to the Knitting and Journal creating!  Knitting for Ecology Sports in Sister Bay, WI, and Journals for Seasons on St. Croix Art Gallery in Hudson, WI!

Thanks for stopping by at my blog!  Come again!  And in the mean time,
