What have I been up to all this time you may ask? Obviously it has not been blogging. I do have a new creative outlet to share with you all. What is this new venture? Hand Carved Crochet hooks. I know you've all seen them. Beautiful, aren't they. I have always admired these back to nature crochet hooks. I HAD to try it out myself. What was I waiting for...... Well, wait no longer they are here and in my etsy shop as we "speak".
Here are a few of my favorites.
Check out my Etsy shop to see more of what I've created in the way of fun and artsy crochet hooks.

Well, it has been quite a while since I've had time to post. What have I been up to you ask? FELT BEAD JEWELRY. I have had fun creating all these colourful necklaces. They have been a real hit too, both locally and in my Etsy shop.
Each felt ball is individually made through a combination technique that I came up with. I do a combination approach to needle felting and finishing each bead off by wet felting. So much fun to make and wear!

I have had so much fun working on some new scarf designs. I am completely in love with asymmetrical clothing. So, I decided to design an asymmetrical scarf. Wow, do I ever love them. These scarves come to almost a point on one end and are approximately 6-8 inches on the other end. The versatility of this scarf is amazing. One could wear it as a long scarf or wrap it up as a lovely soft cowl.
Another new design that I am very excited about is the convertable cowl. This is a cute little cowl that converts into a hat by pulling on a drawstring on one end.

How fun! I went to my first fleece auction earlier this month. I have never seen so much fleece in my life. I brought my eldest son with me to take part in the auction event. While we were there, we were able to learn alot about how to judge a fleece in order to pick out the highest quality fibre for our projects. We also witnessed the shearing of two cute little sheep. The adventure was fun and we came home with 2 whole fleeces to process.

Wow, it has been quite the creative journey in finding my niche. I have always loved working with yarn. I remember my grandmother teaching me how to knit and crochet when I was around 8 years old. I loved it right from the start. Being more of an instant gratification type of personality, crochet was the perfect choice for me. Projects galore finishing at a rather rapid pace. For many years I crocheted scarves and eventually graduated to blankets. The more I created, the more I fell in love with the colours.
Colours!!! Hmmm, where to get the colours that I could see in my head, but not on the shelves...... the birth of the hand spun yarn! I got my first drop spindle during spring break 2012. By April my husband and mother in law graciously purchased my first spinning wheel for a very memorable birthday present. It was obvious to all that I was hooked. The rest in history....:D
