It's time for another monthly Needlework Update. I've been very busy this month filling orders and making items to restock our little on line shop, EvensensProductions.com.
Above is a custom order hat in University of Texas - Dallas orange. :) It has already been delivered to its new owner where it has been very cold this winter!
The accountant in me got busy doing an analysis sales and of search terms for my shop over the past three years.
I've had a few cloche hats/chemo caps in the shop for some time and I provide them at exceptionally reasonable prices. I didn't realize until I looked at my analysis that "chemo caps" was one of the top three search terms for my shop (each shop is different, of course) so I figured it was time to restock and make some extra pretty ones in addition to the plain ones I have made before. These are beautiful to wear whether purchased as a chemo cap or as a fashion statement. The hat above is made with two strands of yarn, one of which is a very fancy yarn.
This gorgeous turquoise yarn is much prettier in person than it is in this picture, too. I'll surely get better pictures of the color before I put it in the shop.
To give my hands a rest from repetitive movements, I switch between different pattern stitches and knit and crochet projects. I love to have several going at the same time so I have something small to grab and take along to work on when I will be sitting somewhere for awhile. Also, it's good to have some smaller projects I so have the feeling of completion between sessions working on a larger project.
What are you making? I love seeing your blogs and all your many beautiful needlework and sewing projects. How do you organize your them to keep them fun while still being productive? Also, thanks to all who share the wonderful recipes and gardening tips! I so look forward to getting home to our own kitchen and garden.
All the very best,
