So here are a few projects I’ve been working on, or that are still in progress. First up the Two Cakes to Tango Shawl. Here I’m using the Red Heart Ombre yarn in the color Sea Coral, and the second yarn is some Mainstays yarn from Wally World in the color Purple. I need to go get a second skein of the Purple to make this shawl as big as I’d like, but it looks like it’s only going to take one skein of the Sea Coral. I was taken back by the $8 price tag of the Ombre yarn, but then when it got to my door I found out it’s almost as big as a Pounder skein! Soooooooo yummy!
Here are a couple of the dishcloths I’ve been working on. I am ramping up my dishcloths and soap sacks, because dh is going to be out of work during his surgeries, and I need to start making at least $300 a week at the flea markets and through my shop, to help support us through the summer and fall.
I cannot just go get a regular ol job anywhere, because I am the caretaker, and person who does all of the driving to appointments, and everywhere. Plus there’s homeschooling, and just all of the housework and gardening and animal tending that thankfully the kiddo’s are picking up a Lot of the slack on too. But right now I am increasing inventory like a crazy person, so I can hit the ground running! Plus I might be helping out our neighbors too, because they buy storage lockers and do the whole flea market thing too, so I can make a little money helping them do a lot of moving and setting up also. Yaaayyy, work! (my weekends are definitely going to be as full as my weekdays for a while)
Here’s some pink protest hats that I’ve been working on also! Seems like I can’t keep these in stock, so I just keep cranking them out! If anyone wants any just message me, and I’ll set them aside for you before I pop them on my shop. People who read the blog get first dibs. 🙂
And lastly here are some necklaces I bought the parts to, and then just whipped them together. The cross and heart are abalone shell, and then little pendant in the middle says, “God does not provide a map for Life… only a Compass” and then it has a little compass cross thing that hangs over it. So, I really don’t think it much counts as jewelry making, ~But~ this weekend I am going to be wire wrapping some dragons eyes that I’ve painted, and will be making pendants and pins out of them! And to me That counts as totally making jewelry, so stay tuned for that! (and yeah, my picture taking still sucks. neener.)
And now I get to go put the chickens up for the night and then I can relax for an hour or so. Knitting of course!
