apple cider season

Last week I got in my white envelopes, and have been in a packaging frenzy. I finished up these thank you’s, all individually printed with a hand cut linoleum block and stitched.  I’m really into carving these blocks, so I’ll have to start thinking up some new designs.

In an attempt to make my stitched wall pieces more marketable, I decided to make custom initials. I was working on an ‘M’ last night, and I think it turned out well. Nice and simple. It’s only 3in in diameter, which makes it a perfect little grab and go gift.  I plan to work on a few more letters before the show.

Now that the winter is almost here, I’ve been falling into my cold season hobby of crocheting. I enjoy this because it’s so easy to work on while I sit on the couch under a warm blanket, drinking apple cider. I taught myself how to make doilies last week, which is very grandmotherly of me, but I shortened the pattern to only a few rounds and I’m in the process of discovering new uses for them.

So far, this is the best I’ve come up with. I’m expecting a revelation early next week.
