Because It's not ALL about packing and sorting

Just to show there HAS been some creative fun going on too in the last several weeks.

I'm really in love with this new design. (This one is in my Etsy shop)

I've decided now that I am moving "to Town" I need to come up with a city design to balance out the farm pots....

And some weaving!  I'm finally working on the 57" loom I picked up in Ohio over a year ago.  It works perfectly!  No tension or brake problems.

Two baby blankets (that are still waiting to be hemmed, which you wouldn't know if I hadn't told you!)

And now I have to brag.  When my folks asked what I wanted for Christmas I told them a handmade loom bench!  (Now that my two bigger looms are in two different cities I needed a second bench.)

Look what they made me!!!  (Carpentry by Dad, painting by Mom)

I'll be back.  PROMISE. :)

LOVE the bench ... they could make a killing selling those! And I love the black yarn bowl -- I was lucky enough to get one of your yarn bowls from my boss for Christmas. I was definitely doing the happy dance!

I'm really thinking I need to get the black one for a "set"!

Well you know I'm going to say I love those houses! So great but don't give up the farm entirely:)

I must have been channeling you Tracey! No, I will always love the farm stuff. :)
