Luscious Velvet and Updates…

Happy Saturday!  I figured it was about time I give an update on what’s been going on around here.  I am working on adding new items to the shop, and these are a few new creations currently available…

I just love this dusty rose/mauve velvet–it makes a great handwarmer.  It is so silky smooth and lustrous.

This pouch was handwoven by me, from silk and wool yarns.  The wool yarns (cream and beige colored) were actually handspun by me as well.  The back is made from a caramel linen, and the lining is a fabulous, mustard-colored organic cotton…

This necklace includes reclaimed bits of Kuchi chain, beads and other baubles.  The felted wool is from a knitting swatch.

Though I plan to continue to stitch, March will be bringing on some serious arting vibes!!  The Clearwater Art Walk, an event I’ve participated in for a couple of years now, is coming up on April 6 and I hope to have lots of new work by then.  (There might be another art show, too, depending if I am able to get ready for it…details to come if I decide on it…)

Garden season is nearly upon us, too!  Well, it should be already…there are seeds I’ve wanted to start, but haven’t, of course.

I’ve also started working on what I’m calling Anatomy of a Pouch…I’m not yet sure if it will be a series of posts, an ebook, or what yet….but basically, it’s designed to help YOU sew and design your own zipper pouches.  I would hope to have this done sometime in March, but no promises!

As always, I would love to know what crafty things you’re up to!  Feel free to share here or on any of my social pages, or shoot me an email!
