The Pullover

Here it is, all put together, and I like it and will actually wear it.
It is supposed to have sleeves, but I didn't like them so I took the out.

I love yarn swaps! Enjoy!

Today we went Strawberry picking. We went to the same farm as last year, but this time we did not pick as many as last year. They are so so delicious. We will have to try to go for raspberries, the trick is you have to get there right a 9:00 by 10:30 you may be too late.

Tonight for dinner I made spinach salad, with a bit of red onion, sunflower seeds, olive oil with with cilantro herb blend, and some of our fresh picked strawberries.
The main course was stuffed shells, I added white cheddar instead of mozzarella, and diced up some deli chicken and added it to the cheesy mix. Yum, yum.


Now for an update on my pullover, I have one square...
now two squares, lightly blocked and ready to be crocheted together.

Finished pictures soon. Enjoy!

Rosemary Popcorn



This is our favorite snack, Orla loves it. You pop the popcorn on the stove with oil we use canola, you add sprigs of rosemary, and popcorn. The rosemary pops of the sprigs as the popcorn pops.
Enjoy!

Clips Sets

I started putting some of my clips together to make sets. The medium clips sets have 3 different clips with 2 interchangeable flowers, and a set of ponytail holders.

The small clips sets have 2 pairs of clips with a set of flowers and small ponytail holders. The small ponytail holders are perfect for little ponytails or braids.

They make a perfect birthday gift or anytime surprise. These sets are available in my shop, along with a few others, and I can custom create sets as well. Enjoy!

Swap Projects

This is the swap yarn I received from CT, along with some chamomile tea and 2 beautiful postcards from her town.

This is what I have started, it is going to be a pullover, I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
I have also added beads to the magenta thread, and have started something with that too.

My assistant and joy.

Sugar Stars

I created some beaded earrings with 6 loops, and then
accidently made one with just 5 loops, which creates a star.


Then, Kevin said they looked like sugar crystals, hence the name, Sugar Stars.
See more pictures in my shop. Happy Friday!

Thread Doily Earrings


Earrings I just listed in my shop.

I am supposed to be cleaning but instead I was paging through some treasuries on Etsy, and I came up with a name for these earrings. I made a pair for myself and I wear almost everyday, they are super light and go with anything. I have two more colors to list. Enjoy!
