I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

The story behind the sale

If Black Friday is turning you blue with the wintery winds outside, come back in and shop online for a bit. Etsy has a nifty Shop Local page so you can still support your neighbors, too. Handmade crafts have a story to share. Check out this nifty video from the Etsy itself.

What's my story? My T-pillows are made with repurposed and thrift materials. I start with a well-loved, clean shirt with an intriguing graphic. Mountain View is made with a limited-edition Threadless tee so it's extra unique.

Scrap fabric completes the back. This pillow is trimmed with some vintage tassels from my mom-in-law's basement. The pillow is eco-friendly and has a bit of history to boot. The only new item is a button handmade by Lisa Clarke of Polka Dot Cottage. So the story continues. Visit her site and Etsy shop to discover her crafts.

Back in my lil shop, I'm having a Free U.S. Shipping Sale plus 10% off all stock for this holiday shopping weekend. This baby blue dino just arrived and his orange buddy is coming soon.

If you want to take handmade into your own hands, here's a sneak peek at two loom-knit patterns coming next week. They are drying now before their big photo shoot. They will be quick knits just in time for a last-minute holiday gift.

Happy Holidays and stay warm while shopping or knitting!
