New Pillows

I am in such a pillow mood. Loving making this simple pillows with fabric hearts. I had a customer last week make a special order for one of these pillows with "you make me happy." stitched on the front. How sweet.... I think these would also make nice nursery pillows with some sweet designs on them....hmmmmmm. What do you think?

The Comforts of Home

I am a real homebody. I love to stay at home....sometimes a bit too much. There is nothing like snuggling up in my big bed, with my doggie next to me, sipping tea and me that is heaven. What do you love about your home?

This was an order for a lovely customer from Norway. So cool that something I created is going to live in a place that I have never been. I hope it adds to her comfort of home.....

Crochet Love....

This pic is from Pinterest. (  I just love this picture and how neat and organized this person is. Could I ever be like this with my work? And the beautiful. Is it weird I want to print this picture and frame it? I may even hang it next to my children's.....oh I know I have a problem.

Charity Piece for October

I am very excited about my new plan. Every month one piece in my shop will be my 'charity piece' and all my profits from that piece will be donated to a different charity.

Introducing my new piece for Hope And The City. A wonderful event run by the Canadian Cancer Society-South York Region Unit.

So Sweet

This summer I worked with a local photographer who used some of my hats in her pictures. If you have ever tried to photograph a newborn you know how hard it is. I thought she did an amazing job. Aren't they just the sweetest things? I love making tiny newborn hats but sometimes the sizing can be tricky.  That is why I tend to give blankets as baby gifts as you can't go wrong with the size.

Have a great weekend.....hoping to do some fall things this weekend and finally photograph some new pieces I have for my shop !

Don't you just love completing a project? Almost as much fun as starting one. The baby came early so I had to work fast, but got it to him in time. Not sure in time for what exactly since he is only a few days old. Can't even focus, never mind appreicate my fancy stitch work.....oh well. One day it might even become "the blankie", but no pressure little guy.....

Come visit me on Raverly.....I am Grizzlie Knits :) Love that place....

What are you working on?

Today I am trying to finish this sweet baby blanket. I think I started it too big and now the length needs to catch up with the width. I thought I had two more weeks but the little sweetie decided to show up early. I am loving crocheting this but I have to admit it is taking a long time. I think it will be worth it in the end. I am enjoying these three colours together. My goal is to finish it tonight or in the morning, and tomorrow sew in the ends and make the boarder. If only I had more than two hands!

I'm Back!!!!!!

Hey everyone! So sorry for my absence....but I am back now. and boy...oh boy, have I been knitting up a storm. I don't want to overload we will begin small and progress from there. I have missed this little blog of mine. Afterall, who is going to care about my projects if not for you? Who else wants to see unfinished knitting and crocheting items? Who else won't judge me on my obsession of buying and storing yarn? I know you won't....that is why I am back.

This is my new colour that I am in love with for fall. A customer ordered my Canuck scarf in fig. Love the the colour.....

I can't wait to show you more new items on my shop, ideas in the works, patterns I have written and found, new shops that I just have to give you the links for......and so much more. We can talk about knitting all day, right?   Although, I have to go and start dinner.....

See you later and have a lovely evening....feels good to be back.
