Happy Day to all Mothers!

There is nothing greater than to be a parent in my opinion.   The next most wonderful thing is to see  your child become a beautiful,  compassionate, loving mother herself!   Celebrate Mother’s Day’s with those you love!

Here comes May!

I am so happy that we are saying good-bye to April, for no particular reason really, except that I want to see more green growth and flowers and the sun!  Something like this!

To the knitters out there – have you ever worked on a new project, followed the directions, and still you see that something is just now right!  I have pulled this project out once already and look!!  I don’t blame anyone but myself and it is driving me crazy. The stitches are decreasing and I, of course, don’t want them too? The pattern is said to be originally from the Purl Bee (but I couldn’t find it there?) but I located it on We Wilsons and it is the perfect pattern of a Market Bag. (Just what I have been looking for – for Boho Chic Boutique) So, I am going to try again, so wish me luck. I am determined to figure this out!!

Rainy Days

So, yesterday was one of those days that started out on the low side.  The weather forecasted rain and that, can and did, give me one of those headaches that you really wish would not mess up your day.   One of those days that you wish you could just shut off the alarm and pull up the covers.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t.  On top of that, it was an intense day at work too.  I went through the day not feeling my best, working really hard to stay focused.  I don’t often complain, but it was one of those days. (thanks for letting me vent!)

As you know, I have a been selling some of my items at Boho Chic Boutique and recently they celebrated their one year anniversary!  It was great fun, meeting other artisans, friends, and family of Boho.  Surprisingly, I just found out that I (me!) won the raffle that they had!  So excited to have won a $100 gift certificate.  I can’t wait to start shopping!  Thanks Boho!

I have also been working on one of my projects for spring/summer items for Boho.  Here are some pictures!  Really wish I could find more time to keep on knitting….

The yarn is from Bernat brand and it is 72% cotton and 28% nylon. It is in bulky weight and the colors remind me of the sea.

Welcome April!

The months are just going by so quickly.  Hopefully, the spring weather will continue and we will all enjoy a mild, sunny spring!

Have to show you my two new necklace creations from felting with bf.

I’m pretty pleased with the way they turned out.  Such fun!

Happy knitting, happy felting, happy life,

Welcome Spring!

Soon we will be seeing these beauties! Can’t wait!

This weekend will be day two of bead felting with best friend. (Check her out on Adrienne’s ARTistic Experiences) We will be taking all of the felt beads that we made and begin   to string them together to make a beautiful necklace.  Take a look at the beads that I’ve made.  Next week, I will show off my completed necklace!

I’m also working one of the two new items to be featured at Boho Chic Boutique!  Think spring farmer’s market shopping?  Can you guess?

 

Happy knitting, happy felting, happy life,

Let the Felting Begin!

IMG_1541

So, I made these felts pieces awhile ago, taking wool fiber, wetting and rolling till the fibers fuse together to become one.  I’ll be with bf today at her Artistic Expressions class (Adrienne’s Artistic Expressions via Squareup.com) taking those pieces and creating some fantastic jewelry.

You can also look for this great book that I purchased to help me enjoy the art of wet felting.

Don’t forget, I’m working on a couple of spring/summer items exclusively for Boho Chic Boutique! More details to come…

Happy life, happy knitting and felting,

Nancy

 

Happy March!

Puppy is not feeling well!  His ear infections are awful and I am busy trying to find out more information on how to give him some relief and maybe, just maybe, to get rid of the problem!  He’s been to the veterinary clinic several times, taking all kinds of ear drops, medications, and nothing has worked.  We do have an appointment with a dermatologist specialist for animals to see if she can help.  I didn’t even know that there was such a person!  Please let me know if you have any suggestions.  Wish us luck!

Going to a baby shower this weekend, so you know that I have knitted a blanket as part of the gift.  It’s a little girl and I can’t wait to meet her.

Also, don’t forget to check out the last of my winter knitted items at Boho Chic Boutique in Waterford, NY and there will be a couple of spring/summer knitted pieces to look forward too!

Happy life, happy knitting,

Nancy

February is Almost Gone!

When I think of February , I think of my mom’s birthday, which is this Sunday! So, Happy Birthday, Mom!  You are the best!

I’m busy knitting this beautiful  super bulky cowl in a seed stitch.  Just kind of made up my own little pattern, very basic, very easy! The color is called Velvet by Loops & Threads. I think the color is the awesome!

Good-bye January!

I’m feeling good that we are moving away from January (and the coldness!) and on to February!  It means that we are getting closer and closer to spring, which I have to say, I can’t wait.

Best friend and I finally exchanged our Christmas gifts – I was excited to finally have time to sit and visit, shop and exchange.  I have taken some pictures of one of my gifts, which I just love!  Best friend always comes up with the best ideas!
