Hello Beautiful! (The Darcy)

Finally, inspiration strikes! This design just hit me yesterday morning. Hand knit, felted with removable pin of handmade felt beads. This one is a variegated coral and beige wool. I have one in olive and teal on the needles and another in eggplant and chocolate on deck...

I hope to have several posted to my etsy shop sometime next week.

Simple Knots and Pearls

My first hand knotted beading attempt was the freshwater pearl necklace below. After making a bracelet as a gift, I made the white pearl one pictured here for myself with the left-overs. Not bad for first attempts if I do say so myself...

Flower Baby

If I hadn't taken this picture of myself, the shirt would read "Flower Child"

Even though outside it is gloomy, today I am feeling sunny. I decided to wear my Flaunt It! of Hawaii's Flower Child maternity tee for the first time! This color combo is no longer available, however if you click the alternative below it will take you to a listing for a different color (and even more color combos are available; $22 each).
