Needlework and Wood Update - August, 2015

Good morning,

My how time flies!  It seems I just wrote the July Needlework and Wood Update and here it is time again.

The lovely sweater above is a special order design that was fun to design and make.  The lady who ordered it described colors and what she wanted and then gave me license to design her sweater. 
This is a lap blanket in my favorite colors.  :)
This hat shown above is sized for preteen to small adult.  At this writing, it is still available in the shop.

I also made quite a few more hats to restock the shop...

I also restocked the shop with Luggage Identifiers:
It is amazing how helpful these little identifiers are when you travel.  I was able to easily spot our luggage from the other side of the airport luggage carousel because of these tags.
And, finally, My Honey made three more pens...
...and two more pepper or coarse salt grinders for the shop.
Even with all the travel during the past two months, we have still kept ourselves busy making some of our favorite things!  I hope you've enjoyed seeing them as much as I enjoy seeing what you are crafting, baking, growing, and photographing.

This page is linked to our shop, Evensens Productions, so those who stop in there can see what is new for the shop every month.  We sincerely appreciate your encouragement and support.  We recently passed the 400 mark of items sold in the shop.  That is pretty exciting considering all of our items are hand made by us.  We get orders from many different sources;  thank you for noting on your orders that you are blog readers.

We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.  ;)

All the very best,

Hand Crafted Original and Traditional Designs

You have been busy and in time for cooler temps and winter weather coming. All are very colorful and useful as well.

You are one talented lady. Those things are beautiful. My sister crochets, tats (?), and sews. The things she makes are remarkable.

The sweater is so fun! I love the colors in your lap blanket too. And your husband's pens are something to drool for!
