Hello everyone, I haven't been a very good blogger lately and for that, I'm truly sorry.
I do have good reasons though. I've been busy busy busy, making these cute little egg cosies for our Thanksgiving morning breakfast while we are...

here. (can't wait!)

I also have been working on this little project. An Advent calendar which of course needs to be done by the first of December. I'm finished with number 13. Only 12 more to go!

Sitting on my desk, is this little project. I cannot wait to start this beautiful necklace from here.

In my living room I have this wooden carrier full of yarn so I can crochet while I watch TV.
If I'm not doing something with my hands at night, when I curl up on the couch, I will fall asleep immediately. (even if it is only 8:30pm)
Along side the yarn, you will see a glimpse of a couple wool hats I have made for myself. Sorry to say, I am not brave enough to actually model them on my head for you to see.

In the studio, these little Petunias are waiting to be finished and added to the shop for the holidays.
I'm also experimenting with the idea of adding houses to the shop, similar to these.
They are my first attempt. I think I have some work to do. Lots of ideas floating around in my head.
And one last little tidbit before I go...
Have a look at this beauty from 1926!
She has a story all her own, which will have to wait for another time. Besides, she needs a proper introduction, as soon as I name her and get her running smoothly.
But until then, I have many things on my to do list to get ready for our Thanksgiving holiday at the beach!
I'll be back soon!
