Custom Hand Felted flowers

I love doing custom order flowers! It is so nice to work with a variety of fibers and colors. These flowers are made from merino wool, tencel, tussah silk, alpaca, and "meriboo" (merino wool and bamboo) fibers. I love the colors! The pink and rosy colors remind me of Valentine's day :)

Green Smoothies Are the BEST!

I drink a green smoothie every morning, but this is the best one, and I must drink more! Kimberly Snyder and her Glowing Green Smoothie. She has totally dialed it in...try it!

Hello Vermont!

Vermont is so bright and beautiful! I love the sunshine...can you tell I am visiting from Seattle? I love walks in the sunny snow.

Snow Fun

My mom's dog Bailey found a tangerine in the snow (heeheeheee I put it there.) At first he was interested and had to sniff it, but then was unimpressed and walked away to follow another scent. Bailey is a difficult dog to photograph because he is always moving around, so this is a rare moment to capture!

Today I went to Saftlers, the local yarn and sewing shop and bought some new 100% baby alpaca yarn from Plymouth Yarns, so today I will relax and experiment with some new designs. I would LOVE to crochet an alpaca blanket. Alpaca is so very soft against the skin...I just love the feel of it, and I just want to be surrounded by it's softness! But for now, I will eat my sub sandwich for lunch and go for a walk in the snow :)

Great Holiday Season...Now time for Vacation!

PHEW! I was a busy gal this past month! My hands were moving fast like lightening, up late crocheting every night. Now I am on vacation visiting family in good ole' New England. So snowy here, but today has been bright and sunny. I love the snow and ice in the sunshine. Seattle can seem dark in the winter, even when the sun does (rarely) shine. I have to get as much sunlight here as possible before I return to Seattle!
When we arrived, my mom had hommemade brownies and Portuguese Kale soup waiting for us...yum! This morning I woke up and she was placing warm oatmeal cookies she had just baked into a cookie container for us!
