Warm Thoughts With Lots Of Color

Sunny cold day with no wind.... I'LL TAKE IT!  Beats what we've been dealing with lately..... Oh, enough whining about the weather please...

Hooked up a few more bags for sale in May.

My cure for winter blues is always lots of color!

Weaving  shawls for same springtime sale.

My little shawl/scarves work well in spring and even summer.  I use a very lightweight mohair/silk blend, and they're nice to throw over shoulders or wrap around necks on cool summer evenings.  Especially when one is wearing a tank or tee.

And here's my little "Sweet Annie" doll that I found in a flea market.  I love her happy face and the tiny heart she's holding.  

Warm thoughts to you!

Getting Ready For A Colorful Spring

I'm a bit mad at myself, because I made my most favorite bag ever..... took it to the customer..... and forgot to photograph it first.  Dang!  But, on the upside, the lovely lady I made it for owns a wonderful shop (I've written about it here before) called the Vintage Suitcase.  We did some trading, and one of my new treasures is this sweet Santos doll.

I have her a bit dressed up for upcoming Valentine's Day.  She's wearing a strand of whale heart beads I bought many years ago in Alaska, and a pretty heart necklace my friend Jesse made for my mom last year at Valentine's Day.  Here's a closer view of her perfectly peaceful face.

I've been knitting quite a lot lately.  Made this darling little cap for our precious Ruby.

Of course it's tiny baby size.... just adorable and an easy project.

Also been working on a knitted afghan using these gorgeous jewel tone chenille yarns.

 It's a ripple pattern.... Nice soft and luxurious! 

New exciting things in the works.... will begin hooking lots of small bags, goodies, and weaving shawls for an upcoming spring sale in K.C., big trip in the spring (more on that later),  and more!  Stay tuned..... and add some new color to your life.  My new color is bright royal blue!
