Needlework and Wood Update - May, 2016

Good morning,

It has been a busy month of knitting, crocheting, and wood working once again.  This month's update includes sweaters, afghan blankets, wood boxes and more. 

The pink Baskets Braids and Bobbles sweater is an original design custom order that has been delivered.
Leg warmers and ...
... bands were also included.
New to the shop is "Bumble Bee Baby" in size 12 months.  The set includes a sweater, hat, and bumble bee toy.
 And, here is a "Lady Bug Baby" set also in size 12 months.
 This purple tunic sweater was a custom order.
 Also to restock the shop we added the afghan blanket in "sea spray" colors and...
 in warm browns that remind me of a chocolate caramel sundae with cherry topping.
 Quite a few wood items were also added to the shop including this note holder...
 ...two beautiful boxes...

 ...and two sets of salt and pepper shakers.

 These two sweet turtles were a custom order.  The turtle on the left was made to match the colors of the customer's real turtle pet.
 Back in the shop this month are warmers for your hands, arms, and wrists.  We've been told these are great for sleeping, too, for those who have arthritis.
 Every month there are more hats!  Those above were a custom order...
 ...and this wool hat is to restock the shop.
 And, hats always lead to more...
 ...hats!  ;)

 These gray toilet tissue covers were a custom order that has been delivered...
 ...and, I restocked the shop with a few more.

 I haven't made glasses cases for awhile.  This one is to restock the shop after I sold the last one listed there.
 And, finally, it is never too early to work on Christmas items.  Etsy has a "Christmas in July" promotion so I have gotten to work on a few ornaments.  I once made about two dozen of these for a small table top tree we had while we were at sea.  It was fun to have hand made ornaments that were easy to pack even while we were away for the holidays.  These make great package decorations, too.

So, that's what we've been up to since last month's Needlework and Wood Update.  I hope you enjoy seeing what is new flowing from the needles, hooks, and out of the wood workshop.

All the very best,

Original and Traditional Designs

Your hooks and needles must literally smoke when you work! So much lovely yarny goodness. The knit sweater that leads off the post is just gorgeous: lovely color and wonderful textures.
