A Beautiful Day At The Shop


What a beautiful day !
The sun is shining , I have my
shop door open , The temperature 
outside is just so perfect and 
comfortable .
I hear the happy birds chirping as
they help themselves to some
seed in my feeder right
outside my door.
My hanging plants are in 
full bloom and gorgeous.
It's been busy too !

I couldn't ask for a nicer day.

I'm Missing You !


Happy Spring / Summer !

I haven't been here in ages & I miss
my blog ! I've had this blog for years and 
have gotten to know so many people 
through blogging but I've been very
neglectful. 
I'm sorry ................


It's so easy to get caught up in other
social media sites , groups that I've joined there, 
running my shop 6 days a week ,
and trying to take care of my home .
There's just not enough time & 
certainly not enough energy.

I need a magic wand !


Like everyone right now I'm trying to get some
spring cleaning done and get the gardens going 
for the season . 
Slowly but surely , one task at a time,
things are getting done. 


So now that I've made my apologies & 
said a quick HI here to all of you ,
I need to go and check out all
of your blogs. 

I've got some catching up to do !

My Latest & LONGEST Hand Knit Stocking Hat



This is my favorite 
that I've knit so far!

Over 30" long !


I had so much fun knitting this with soft
chunky yarns and a touch of mohair
here and there. 


I've knit it with 2 strands of yarn
so that it's extra soft , thick
& snugly.

I've used shades of denim blues &
hints of purple here and there.



It's a long process but
very enjoyable to me.


If you love this as much as I 
do it's available on my Etsy.
