I Have Been VERY Busy.....New Work and Wips..


I have been really busy the last couple of week. It would seem my Muse is a happy camper..she has been feeding me inspiration like manna!! Whoot!! I am having trouble keeping up though LOL!! I created the above teapot cozy for a dear friend! It was a challenge..but I loooved it..gonna make a few more!

I have been working on granny squares..cause really I love doing them. I bought this amazing book ..."Beyond the Square - Crochet Motifs" by Edie Eckman....I looove it. So I started working on a small something...maybe a baby blanket..or a scarf..not sure what it will be yet. But...I adored the citrus colors..yummmmm!


Ok..I know I am reeeeealy late to the felting game...but I finally did it. I felted a sheep. OMG that was so fun!!! This one is nothing fancy(but I kinda love him)...but ideas are rolling around in my head.


I made a couple of hats for another dear friend. OK this one had a huge learning curve LOL! I won't tell you how many times I tried this one before I figured it out...geesh! But....I learned loads!! Whoot! Nonni modeled for me:)


Last but not lease...I have been drawing like crazy!! I have been working on wings..winged horses, pigs, angels...etc! Color to come still...lots of wips here. Of course there are more bees. I have also been working on a piece that so far I am loving..a unicorn forest. I love it when a piece translates from your head to your paper..and you at least get it close!! Please click on the picture to make it bigger if you would like a closer look.


I hope you have wonderful Monday...and that you have the day off too!!
Hugs, Sarah

Good Morning Sarah Sweetie...
What a beautiful share this morning. I love this tea cozy. Oh what a beautiful job you did. I can just see this one in red of course. That is my favorite color. It is just beautiful.

I love Nonni modeling your hat creation. It is just darling.

Oh and yeah on the felting of your sheep. WOW. I haven't mastered that art yet, but am so wanting to try. Any hints for a beginner?

Love your sketches. You are a wonderful artist. I love the bees.

Hope you have a beautiful week sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

looks to me as though you are having a blast Sarah that is fantastic! LOOOOOOVE the tea cozy, absolutely adorable! My daughter made the cutest felt beads for a necklace and earings for a friend's birthday this past Friday...I love when my kids create handmade gifts for their friends...it always means so much more. Plus, these were really groovy beads!!!

keep feeding your Muse and she will nourish you...such a feast!

By the looks of this post, it looks like you are doing great, busy and full of ideas and energy. The tea pot cover is great. Is that what a tea cozy is? Anyway, you did a great job on that and on the hat. So cute.

WOOOOHOOOOO! Oh, how exciting! To be courted by the Creative Fire, herself! Your knitting and crocheting look warm and beautiful! And I love your sheep. I want to learn how to felt. See? You may be late to the game, but I'm way behind you. And OOOOH, your drawings! I love them! I love the whimsy bees with their wee buckets. And the penlines on your wings and trees are gorgeous! I'm so thrilled! Keep going, baby, keep going!

Hi Sarah! Wow, you have been busy. :) I love the little sheep (needle felting has been on my list for 2 years now - lol!). I love your new drawings, and all that knitting! And Nonni is simply beautiful, isn't she? :) xox!

That's some nice stuff you've got there. Go Sarah! :)

I thought that tea cosies were very much a brit thing! My grandmother always used one. I'm not entirely convinced they work, and hate stewed tea anyway! Still, they look retro cool!
