Needlework and Wood Working Update - March, 2018

Good morning,

This month's Needlework and Wood Working Update features only one wood item and it is a very special one.  My Honey has a new CNC  (Computer Numerical Control) wood working machine and has spent this month getting it set up and working beautifully. .See my earlier post here.

After several test items with the machine, Kjell made a cribbage board for me for Valentine's Day.  Thank you, Sweetheart!  He has so many more ideas and projects coming soon!
 I made a Black and White Afghan Blanket during the winter and listed it in our on-line shop.  That first one received many, many views and "favorites," then sold very quickly.  So, I've now made another to restock this very popular item.  What a perfect gift for a black and white wedding.  It will look stunning with any decor.  $155.
 This colorful stained glass design afghan blanket was also finished during the past month.  I truly enjoy designing with colors.  This item and many other color options are available available in the shop. $155.
 This fellow was "hatched" this month.  Our turtles have become very popular as dorm room pets.  One lady who ordered one for her friend told me it is a "comfort turtle."  I hadn't heard that one before!  Cute!  Small, $8;  Medium, $10; Large $16.
 More color!  This shawl scarf features so many happy, bright colors to add style to any coat, sweater, or dress.  Wear it as a shoulder, neck, or head scarf.  $24.
 If you are a regular reader of this blog, you have seen these luggage identifiers.  They are fantastic to identify your luggage in airport, cruise terminals, or anywhere else your luggage is stacked with other luggage.
 These three sets of luggage identifiers were made this month to restock the shop once again.  They are only $5 for a set of six and are priceless when you are looking for your luggage.
 Of course, we're happy to make up custom orders for whatever color you'd like to have.
 Toilet tissue toppers have also been very popular this month so here are two more to restock the shop.  $8.
 I made them in blush pink and lavender this month.
 Here are three more "Find It Keep It" baskets.  Use the basket for those items you tend to misplace and need quickly when you're ready to leave the house:  keys, glasses, cell phone, etc.  They are also great to keep small items handy:  cotton balls, cough drops, lipstick, eye liner, etc.  These baskets feature a loop that opens to be able to hang the basket on a door knob or it can be closed for the basket to sit on a table or shelf.  $8.

 And, finally, several cloche hats/chemo caps were made this month.  $8.


 Those are the items we completed during the month of February.

I hope you enjoy seeing what flows off of the knitting needles, crochet hooks, and from the wood workshop!

Do you have ideas for what else we could make and offer in the shop?  Please share them with us!   We are always developing new designs while also keeping the shop stocked with those that are very popular and sell out quickly.

All the best,
