A couple new items in the shop as promised last week…hope to write a bit more tomorrow…  Happy Friday!

Shop Little Wood Bird


Just a little line to say that I’ve updated the shop with some fun knit and crochet items…more will be on the way next week too.  All the items listed are of a really amazing bamboo cotton blend wool I have fallen in love with!  Its soooo soft, yet really workable – delicious colours too…!  Take a look!

I have started to fill a little wood bird shop…  Drop by to see the first couple things for sale.

Today I’ve got sewing on the brain… {a big surprise, I know…}  I am working on 2 projects for friends and family but both are in the prepping stage and not the sewing stage…so I just need to keep at it and soon I can whip out my Silver Sewer! : )  For the time being, here’s a little bit of today for you:

Green tomato and material

Green tomatoes my dear man picked this morning from the garden, and the fabric I can't wait to start snipping into for this project here!

I found my sister-in-law-to-be’s blog and new etsy shop {see her folksy shop too}…and I am so excited for her so I thought I’d show her off here! : )

The project that's keeping me sane as I prep the others...thank you purl bee! : )

Ooh!!!  I just got a tip from my husband that a nice parcel has just arrived in the post…and its addressed to me…! ; )  I think some of my waiting’s over because {if I’m right?!} I believe that’s my rotary cutter and ruler {among other lovely accessories} for my quilting project…  I can start cutting + piecing today – yay!

all those 3hrees

There are so many amazing artists out there on Etsy!  Go check them out, and start with this little love over at all those 3hrees who crafts recycled + eco friendly metal jewelry.  Stunning!

Wow!  I stumbled upon Hardanger embroidery a little while back and was mesmerised by all the carefully cut threads and the Norwegian styled motifs…  Well, I thought I’d make a little centerpiece as a gift for an upcoming wedding…  Its a beautiful craft but calls for a very hardy crafts(wo)man!  Whew!  I value symmetry and alignment, but maybe not as much as I thought, ’cause I think this little project might go flying out my window if I have to un-stitch one more time…!  Thankfully I am not alone in my endeavors… I have a lovely neighbor who lets me cry on her shoulder when I just can’t get it…!  She’s a wonderful Hardangerette (among many other things craft related) and I now value her hardy heart even more than I once did…!

Luckily for the rest of the world there are other Hardy Hardangerettes who carry on the wonderful tradition!  If you are interested in purchasing a gift for someone special, take a look at norwegianneedle for some really beautiful designs!
