Needlework and Wood Working Update - September, 2021

 Good morning,

It's already time for the monthly Needlework and Wood Working Update of all of the items we've made this month.   

As I write this post, our Labor Day Sale is happening in the shop.  It is the largest sale we've ever had celebrating our designation as an Etsy Star Seller for the month of September.  The shop, Evensens Productions, is here.  Be sure to take a look in the "On Sale" section of the shop for specials while they last.

My Honey went back to his Norwegian roots for the piece in the image above titled Norse God Odin - Odin's Eye Story.  It is carved in thick, heavy Walnut Wood.  It's even more stunning in person.  $168.  More information and images are here.

 You won't find this one in the shop.  Kjell has wanted to make a wood guitar for a long time and here it is.  He designed and carved it to his own liking.  Perfect!  He never ceases to amaze me with his talent!  He can play it, too.  :)

 This lovely afghan blanket is new in the shop this month.  The design and colors came out just so nicely.  $165.  More images and information here.

 This is a larger version of a blanket I made recently and sold very quickly.  This one is extra wide at five feet by five feet.  I love the way these colors and yarns "work" together!  $135.    More here.

 This Jewel Tones Neck Scarf is extremely soft and comfy.  It will brighten up any outfit on a winter day.  $35.  Only one available.

I've added two more cloche hats this month...

to keep that section of the shop stocked.  We have quite a variety of hats here starting at $8.

I've also restocked and...

...added to the Toilet Tissue Toppers available in the shop.

These dress up the toilet roll and make a great gift bag for a roll of tissue (very valuable in the last couple of years!) to take to your host for a holiday dinner.  Trust me, this gift will bring all smiles.

We have colors for all occasions and bathroom colors.

Check out all of the colors available here.  $8.

I haven't made these for awhile. These cotton coasters are great for your desk or table as well as the drink holder for your car.  I especially like having them in the car.  The way they are made the edges will lay flat or bend up to cradle your drink in most sizes of car drink holders.  They are 100% cotton so are machine wash and dry. 

The Coasters are available in sets of six in a variety of colors.

$10 set of six.

See colors available here.

And, finally for this month...

...as people are traveling again, our Luggage Identifiers are selling out.

$5. for a set of 6.  These are perfect as a retirement or bon voyage gift as well as for yourself.  They have been extremely helpful to us when we travel.  Check out the colors available here.

Thank you, once again, for your encouragement, likes, favorites, shares, and purchases, too.  Our little shop has been such a fun project and blessing to us.  What started out as a hobby more than ten years ago has turned into our retirement business.  

And, don't forget to come over to see the shop and what's available during our Labor Day Sale!

All the very best,
