Blueberry Twirl-Only 1!

Lately I haven't had a lot of time to sew which does drive me a tad crazy.  To stay relatively sane & because I just can't resist buying all the gorgeous ruffled scarf yarns I find, I have been knitting ruffled scarves like a wild woman.   

Today I added photos of several of the newest scarves I have knitted.
With spring right around the proverbial corner and because these scarves are made from an acrylic yarn, they will also look beautiful accessorizing a spring outfit or something as casual as a denim jacket.

The number of scarves available in each color is included in the caption.

The 2 'Sashay' scarves, HipHop and Ballet, have a very subtle silver metallic thread woven into the bottom edge of the yarn which gives the scarves just the slightest hint of bling.

Price per scarf: $25 + postage when applicable 

I will be updating this blog as I knit more scarves so please do check back regularly!

The Mickey Bag!

Exterior of Mickey Bag-Cadet Blue'Orleans'
Some days I just don't want or need a big bag but don't want a small bag either.  Well, a few weeks ago I found a new pattern that I feel is the perfect compromise between big and small.  And thus the Mickey Bag was born.
The Mickey Bag is a shoulder bag that measures about 14 inches across at its widest point and measures about 7 inches high at the center.   It closes with a rounded flap that is secured with a magnetic snap.
With its adjustable shoulder strap the Mickey Bag is also easy to wear across the chest for those times when we might need to be hands-free.
The Mickey Bag is shown in my 2 newest prequilted fabrics.  Both fabrics are named Orleans; one is the black Orleans print and the second is the same design in a gorgeous cadet blue.
Price: $35.00 + postage when applicable
