Pattern Review / Product for Sale #3: I've Been Busy

I have totally fallen off the track with posting as I had promised myself at New Year’s. I went to a wonderful 4th of July/family reunion party and had a great time, but within a couple days the weather went to 112 degrees and I didn’t handle it...

Inspirations #10: It's Fairy Day!

Pattern Review / Product for Sale #2: Product Photography 101 (!%$#!?!)

In keeping with having products in my store to sell, I have just added another (and very colorful) item for sale – the Boucle Delight Cowl. I had originally made this as a scarf, but it ended up a little short, so i decided to convert it to a...

I've Been So Bad...

Well, I certainly hope that all of you had a wonderful Easter and didn’t go overboard on the sweets, like I did! I had plans of showing gorgeous carved eggs (that you can see here), or at the very least sharing a cute GIF (which can be seen"...

So I’ve made a start on the R2D2 pixel throw! I’ve made a dent into 2 balls of yarn, one white and one black! I’m loving how it’s going so far!! http://res.cloudinary.com/cc/f_auto/20180316_152959_yiy588.jpg!
