I haven't been blogging regularly, but I HAVE been staying busy!

I have really been lax about posting anything here on the blog. And for that, I apologize. Sometimes it seems like there isn't anything happening around here that's worth mentioning in a blog post. And with Facebook, I can post quickly and easily and even interact with friends and family after posting. Instant gratification...yeah, I'm into that sort of thing. Sigh...

But, really, I have been busy, I swear! I'm going to post a few of the accessories I have created over the past few months. I'll only post a couple per blog post so I don't overwhelm you.

Here is a shawl I crocheted using some hand painted merino/silk yarn. It is incredibly soft with amazing drape. Its called "Spices" and can be found in my ArtFire store here.



And here is a felted hat I made this past summer. It is hand crocheted from black alpaca yarn and then felted in the washing machine. The brim can be worn rolled up or turned down. And it looks fabulous when you add a hat band. The hat bands shown are from my personal collection and are shown for demonstration purposes only. This hat can also be found in my ArtFire store here.





Thank you for visiting! I hope your new year is going well so far!

Dear Brenda,
Nice shawl and hat. I can understand you not having so much time to blog. It does take a lot of valuable time that could be used for making your craft.
I just thought that I would mention that my cat Sara passed away the night between Tuesday and Wednesday. So I will be redoing her blog "Sara Cat Writes" so that her siblings can take over.
You have always been good to cats, as well as all your other animals, so I thought I would let you know what happened.
Best wishes & hugs,
Anna
