Needlework and Wood Update - April, 2014

Good morning,

My how time flies!  Another month has passed so here is the April Needlework (and Wood!) Update featuring the items finished since the March Needlework Update. 

Above is a Sweater of Green Cables.  I finished this one while we were traveling, listed it in our on line shop, Evensens Productions, and it was sold within the hour.  It is now living happily in Texas.  :)
This is a royal purple lap blanket.  It is already spoken for and has been given to a hospice patient.
This is a reversible cowl in shades of off white and beige...
...and this one is off white and turquoise.  These are so very comfy to wear and I love that they keep us warm without getting in the way while driving, walking the dog, or reaching to pick up the kids.
We're restocking for Fall with this cables and lace hat and cowl set...
...and another set in burnt orange. 
This is a crocheted mobius cowl; a mobius is a tube with one twist.  The twist makes your scarf lay flat in the front.  This scarf takes on an entirely different look when "bunched" and worn looped twice around your neck.  It is in the shop with several images of different ways to wear it.
 This is a special order knit mobius made for a man.  Beautiful!
This is also a special order that has gone to live with a gentleman in Australia where it is getting cold at this time of the year.
Of course, there are always...
...a few turtles hatching every month.
This turtle was made to accompany a baby blanket.  The set is listed in the shop now.
And, this little lady was made to accompany the matching baby blanket.  This set, too, is available in the shop.
It's nearly swim suit time again so time for some Zero Calorie Cupcakes.  The pink cupcake sports a little piggie wearing a bib that says, "Feed me!" 
I made more cloche/chemo caps to add to that new section of the shop. 
 It's good to have some pretty ones available and many different styles.
 I also have some plain styles that are suitable for a man or a woman.
 This chemo cap was a special order and has been delivered.
 Two more plain caps above...
 ...and another with a flower and little caterpillar.
 Now that we are home My Honey has made some more bird houses for the shop, too!
He uses a variety of hard woods to make unique little bird houses.  I absolutely love these!  They are just precious!  They are darling hanging on house plants, in your kitchen window, or on your Christmas tree.

So, that's the update for this month!  I sometimes surprise myself when I look at the list of what we have made in one month.

Thank you, once again, for your support and encouragement!  Thanks to you the shop has been a great success and we are enjoying it tremendously.

What have you been up to?  I love seeing what you are making, baking, and growing.  Thanks for sharing all of your talents with the rest of us on your blogs.

We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.  ;)

All the very best,
Lois
