It's been a while...

But it's because I've been so crazy busy. And, this is going to be a somewhat short blog for the same reason, because I'm just working on so much.

First up is a request that I got from a friend. She wanted a giant orange jellyfish to put on her bed as a throw pillow. So, this is what I made! I'll also be taking any custom orders for these, so if you're interested, feel free to email me!

And this is the only picture I got of it before I sent him off. He was really fun to make though!!

I also recently made my friend Jackie a Kirby! We're both really excited for the new video game, Kirby's Epic Yarn, so I made her this to celebrate. :)

And now, I'm working on a few more projects. I've made some heads that I need to put on plaques and into the store, and did I forget to mention last time that I made it to the front page of Etsy?! OMG! I was so excited when I pulled Etsy up, and there I was!!
And, for now, I'm also working on a fun project for myself. Here's a little bit of a background story.

My good friend, Jackie, lives in New Jersey. She has amazing yarn sources there, and since she has taken up knitting this past year, she has also become a bit of a yarn whore. Something else interesting about Jackie is that she loves a good sale. She finds yarn for CHEEEAP at warehouse sales, and sales all over New York too. So, while at a sale one day, she picked up a bunch of yarn for me! I loved it all. Well, there were these 2 hanks of this beautiful burgundy yarn. She also told me shortly after sending it to me that she was going to make me a swift, so I couldn't roll that yarn until I got the swift. So, I got the swift a few weeks later, and it's been sitting, I just haven't rolled any of the hanks. Until last week.

I found an amazing pattern that I knew I wanted to use the burgundy yarn for. So, I got out the swift, and started rolling so I could work with the yarn.
Here's an action shot!

The swift is amazing! I don't buy yarn in hanks much, but when I do, it's such a pain to roll it. I'm so glad I have the amazing swift now!
Well, after running out of the wonderful burgundy yarn, Jackie was kind enough to make yet another trip to New York to get me more!!! So now, I'm back and SUPER excited about my newest project.

So, that's all for now. Is everyone feeling Fall now? We're feeling Winter, because it snowed here today!
Also, don't forget about the giveaway!! I need a fun new banner!



OMG that jellyfish is freaking amazing!!!! I'm thoroughly jealous!
I can not believe it snowed where you are! Its been cold the last few days but sheesh! We can't skip fall!
I can't wait to see what your working on with all that burgundy yarn, that's so sweet of your friend to send you supplies!!


Thanks so much!! The jellyfish started with one I posted on Craftster, and the requests have just gone from there. They're really fun for me to make though!!

We don't have much of a Fall here, I live in Montana. We pretty much have about a month of spring, and then jump back into winter. lol.
I should be done with my project of my burgundy yarn very soon, and will post it after that. I have a great friend that understands my constant NEED for new beautiful yarns! lol


That jelly fish is huge! I just read several great reviews of Kirby's Epic Yarn and I'm even more excited. I need to remember to pre-order it.

Hey! That's me you're talking about! You make me sound so awesome. That's probably cause I am awesome. And yes, I do love a good sale. Remember the tench coat I got at Sacks 5th Ave?

I really wish I knew how to make a banner. I really only know how to create graphic monstrosities.
