Fireside Creations

Well..... coming nicely out of my brief creative slump, and jam packed with fireside ideas for winter.  Apparently, little Iris has beat me to my favorite hooking chair.

I'll start out with my loom project that I was so disappointed with the other day.  I worked with it some more and decided that I am happy with the size and began to weave my new lovely bloodroot yarn.

I've been working slowly and methodically making sure all my weaving is straight and even.  This will be a light and airy shawl.

When I take it off the loom, it will fall together more and the weave will be tighter, but not too tight I hope!

I've also been working on wristies for the library gift shop.  I thought this pair turned out super cute, and am starting another pair just like it.

I think the crocheted wool along the bottom looks like a tiny flower garden.  Instead of weaving in the ends, I tied them in a tight bow and frayed the ends.

I've also been working on more hooked cuffs for the gift shop and my little Etsy store.

And..... I have a nice full knitting basket.  Love that!

And.... when I'm not knitting, hooking, or weaving... there's always my lovely new mags and a nice glass of cab waiting for me.  sigh...........

it's all so beautiful
and inviting,
gives me a vacation feeling
just to peek in
and feel the cozy rhythm
of your life.
My creativity gets a strong vitamin
every time I visit here, dulcy.
