Oh Christmas Tree!

I made a pillow with some oh sute cute Christmas trees! You really must excuse my photos from now on. I never claimed to be good at photography! (the photos in my earlier post are by the talented Amy VZ).

shrunk WooLerY

I did it. I have joined the world of all you crazy blogging people. The purpose of this blog is to share with everyone the things that I have recently made and to announce upcoming events that I am involved in.

For those of you that are not familiar with my work, I will tell a little of what it is that I do. For a little over a year now, I have been creating fun new items out of recycled wool sweaters. In doing this, I get to enjoy the thrill of the hunt finding great sweaters at secondhand stores. I have always loved thrift shopping and sweaters, so this really is a dream come true for me. I am now very passionate about what I do.

I have completed two local craft shows so far. I did well and loved seeing people enjoying my product. I am currently making adult mittens and fingerless gloves, children's mittens (which are also available at Hop Scotch Children's Store), stuffed horses, baby blankets, purses, pins, and wreaths.

These are a pair of children's mittens that I made. They were my all time favorite! They sold this week. I will miss you Santa mittens!
