Needlework and Wood Working Update - May, 2017

Good morning,

Time flies when you're retired.  We are loving every minute of retirement while also working to create items for our on line shop, EvensensProductions.com.  So, I guess we aren't really retired, we are now self employed and are enjoying it tremendously.  :)

The item above is still in the test phase.  It's a fruit bird feeder that My Honey made in his wood workshop.  We have been testing different areas of our garden to find where the birds can enjoy it and My Honey can take pictures of them.  After further development, we expect to feature these in our shop.

The sweater of the month is Bright Sky Blue.  It is a unisex sweater that fits 34"-38" chest sizes.  Click the image for more information.
 A few weeks ago we sold out of these hand crochet Find It Keep It Baskets.  They can sit on a table or hang from your door knob where you can find your keys, phone, or other important items.  There is a "button hole" in the top rim that will fit on your door knob (see images with listings in the shop).  That "button hole" lays flat in the top rim when the basket is sitting on a table.

These are also great for wrapped candies or cough drops, baby items, or whatever you want to keep where you can find it.
 You can find these listed in the Home Living & Entertaining Section of our shop.


We have two new colors of yarn this month!  Above is a gorgeous Purple, Magenta, and Blue...
...and these shades of Purple and Pink are just gorgeous, too.

I am taking orders for other items to be made from this yarn.  Both of these new colors are perfect for sweaters, hats, and caps or other items.  Let me know if you'd like something made especially for you.
Six sets of this color Luggage ID tags were sold this month so here's another in the shop to restock.
We were totally sold out of these so I've made more in different colors to restock.
It's travel season so order yours today!  They also make fantastic little gifts for friends and family who will be traveling.  They are also appreciated by cabin stewards and others you may meet on board cruise ships.
And, if you are a travel agent, contact me about having us make them in your choice of color and attaching your business (that you provide) for you to give to your customers.
These Luggage Identifiers are $5 for a set of 6 and are also available in the Home Living & Entertaining Section of our shop.
So many pretty colors!






And, finally, I made more cloche hats/chemo caps to restock the shop.

These caps are great bad hair day, dreaming, reading, sleeping, whenever you want to wear them hats!  ;)
These are popular with teens, too, as stylish cap.
We have more than 60 of these available in the Cloche Hats & Chemo Caps Section. $8 to $12 each.

That's it for the this month.  We're hard at work making more items for next month and are happy to take custom orders for what you'd like to have us make for you.

All the best,
Lois
