Needlework and Wood Update - August, 2016

Good morning,

It's so hot outside that it's a good time to stay inside and create.  This month was another busy one for the knitting needles and crochet hooks!  Many of these items are available in the shop.

Be sure to scroll all the way down and see the wood items new this month, too.

Above is a button-side poncho with turtle neck that will be wonderful to have when the weather turns cold.  This one was a special order and is already with it's new owner. 
These are the colors of a customer's organization and items in these colors so I've made several including the sweater above...
 ...and boot cuffs.  There are so many different pretty ways to wear the organization's colors!
 Last month I showed you hats with intarsia crochet names.  This month, these were ordered by the same family for Henry's Dad...
 ...and Henry's Mom.  How very cool!
 And, it was restocking time for more caps for the shop.

 I made several similar hats in different sizes.

 It's never too early for Christmas!  Our shop had a Christmas in July promotion and we sold out of the Santa hat ornaments, so I made these to restock.
 Luggage Identifiers are also a hot item.  :)  Don't leave home without them!

 My Honey was very busy in his wood workshop this month, too!
 These are hand crafted turned wood security whistles that you can keep on your key chain.
 Each turned wood item is unique.

These last two are very special.
They are turned of Olive Tree Wood from Bethlehem.
My Honey has made more hand crafted turned wood bird house ornaments, too.
Each one of these is more beautiful than the last.  

There will be many more wood items coming next month.
