Some new projects


On the needles, above , the 'Beret Gaufre'...I can't help but think of the 'Raspberry Beret' song when I look at it. I didn't do it on purpose, I had the yarn already laying around for socks or some project long forgotten. I'm not sure it's going to work out since it seems so fine- we'll see. Never did get around to finishing the other hat I had going- I should do that too.

I actually did get 2 cell phone cozies done yesterday. I will try and get them listed here after this....2 in one day! Amazing! ( pats self on back). Things have been expiring (on purpose) in the shop so I can put new things in...

The Log Cabin Bunny Cozy above. A different size and shape than I've had in the shop before. I use one like this myself, but mine's a little smaller.This one holds a smaller phone and a Bluetooth inside-(is that what they're called?? )
The back has polka dots:
You can't go wrong with Polka dots right? And a cute little vintage button....

The button's glued on with gem-tac. One of my favorite supplies! I wasn't sure if it would last but I've used mine for months and so far it hasn't budged.
And another:
So far I'm calling this one the 'Paper Dolls' cozy. I think it was from a line of fabric that had paper dolls printed on it...I'll have to find it again and check.

A closeup of another vintage button. I love vintage buttons. Sometimes I have a hard time using them.
I'm not sure I can part with this one.


Better go get them listed.My daughter has a school concert -she's playing clarinet.
I need to pack and take them to Disneyland today and tomorrow too~ Just not enough time in my days!
