It's Tuesday...

already! And what have I been working on? Knitted dish/wash cloths, of course:
These just need the finishing touches--sewn up the sides & whatnot.
I have been making beads, too--pics of those later on this week. After I get them cleaned :)
And here's a pic of me & Ayden---just for fun:
In case you forgot what we look like.

Garage Sale Friday...

netted Ayden some pretty cool finds:

A tricycle for $3.00, and a slide for $1.00 He's happy. Don't worry--he does get plenty of new things too:)

I scored this vintage basket full of crochet thread and finished pieces. For $1.00. Yes, One dollar: If I get these earring/pendant sets finished, they will be featured at tomorrow's Piedmont Farmer's Market. They will be lovely--come see for yourself if you don't believe me:)

I'll be there from 8:00 until Noon.

Next Knitting Project..

is ready to begin:

Lots of fun ribbons, wool, organic cotton will make a fabulous wrap, I think. The pattern I'm using can be found here:

Mine will obviously be in a mix of greens, not oranges. But you get the idea.

Farmer's Market

This is my small, unassuming space a the Piedmont Farmer's Market. No tent--just an umbrella. No tablecloths--just my tables parked in front of my vehicle. No frills--just me and a great bunch of beads for sale. Selection changes a bit every Saturday--new beads I've made during the week, different trays so you always have something fresh to fondle. I'm there every Saturday, unless it's raining buckets out. I might melt. I am made of sugar, don'tcha know?

Happy Birthday!

Ayden had his birthday! He's 2 now. Here he is playing in his new sandbox: And sporting the new jammies his gramma has sewn:
Finally, here's some really round beads that were made this week:

Earring Pairs..

are being made by the pile:
I just love these tiny little guys! I'm listing two on Etsy today, they rest will be in my trays for sale. See a set in the pic you want? E-mail me to reserve them for you! Don't worry if you miss out on this batch--I'll make more :)

the path

My goal is to turn this pile of bricks:
(that I found at a garage sale for $12.00)(that's right---$12.00 for the entire pile)

into this pathway to the studio:
(that's the Princess making sure the path is up to her standards)

before winter rolls around once again.

Kiln's fixed!

So I bring you my glassy version of El Dia de los Muertos:

And some Folk-art Bird sets:


And if it's not raining tomorrow as it is today, I'll be at the Piedmont Farmer's Market this Saturday! Hope to see you there :)

Um.....

yummy.

Working on...

I cast on this scarf last night:


I'm also supposed to be working on this macrame neckpiece:

but instead I have been reading and knitting. Shame, shame on me.

On another note--I will have to move the date of the Studio Workshop this month, due my the untimely demise of my kiln. I'll post pics of the project along with a date when I know for sure I'll be able to make the beads for the project.

If it's not raining in the morning, I'll be at the Piedmont Farmer's Market, and so will these new cute, cute sets of beads:)

New...

fun beads sets:
These include hollows, lentils, caps, discs & rounds in fun colors for summer :)


I'm working on a project for the start of my "Studio Workshop". Let's try to get together on the second Saturday afternoon every month to work a project, have open beading, maybe lampwork demonstrations--whatever sounds like fun :) Clear your schedule on June 13th for the very first Studio Workshop!! And stay tuned for the details and pics of the project!

Working on...

This new wash/dish cloth pattern:

Pattern is found here, if you're interested in knitting along with me :)


I'm also re-working this neckpiece:

Everyone that tried it on previously thought it too heavy. So it went on a weight loss program today, and is now near perfect, I think!
