weekend



It's been a busy weekend- a good one but busy. I started a hat, fair isle and instead of using different colors for the yarn I am using a solid for the base and one of my hand dyed skeins to see what the result might be- happy so far and it beats using 4- 5 different skeins.
Looking online for new curtains...I found quite a few that I like at World Market - I love that store.
Was thrilled to find a few more roses in my flower garden- nice surprise, thought the frost had taken them all.
Enjoying the last week of September with a bit of unexpected sunshine...went for a long morning walk with hubby and Lily this am. Had breakfast- cereal and tea .Yes, I do eat other things than cereal...like brownies.
Enjoying a book called Brooklyn Makers - very inspired reading about crafty entrepreneurs.
Lily has been by my side a lot this week- much tedious puter work- listing all my yarns on ETSY- it's a JOB- so far over 52 skeins...and more on it's way. I am close to finishing and hope to open Mountain Girl Yarn shop this coming week...
And that my friends makes me so happy!...just like Mr. Buddha.

Have a lovely Sunday!

  6. World Market is my favorite store. We just bought an awesome jute area rug for our living room that looks like woven rope. So perfect for our rustic look. The first 2-strand hat that I knit was done with a variegated and solid yarn. I believe it's called "fake fair isle". Awesome results with not as much work! I love the colors you chose.

  7. LOVING your hat! There's a nice rhythm to the colour repeats. I love brownies too (sometimes even for breakfast...) So excited about your shop opening soon, if I can scoop something up before everyone else I'll be looking like Mr Buddha too :) xo

  9. I cannot wait for your shop opening! That hat is gOrGeOuS--brown with pinks is one of my favorite color combos. I eat a lot of dessert for breakfast & always have...always makes my mother chuckle when I visit & ask her if she has any pie...at 6AM. Happy week, lovely lady!
