Welcome Spring + Summer!

Our warmer temperatures have turned my studio into a garden of summer flowers around here! Glorious colors and whimsy abound. As my husband has been whipping our garden into shape, I find myself turning everything in the studio into a garden of delights too. Take a look...

This needle felted scarf is a riot of flowers and delicious color. Isn't it lovely?!

Here are a few of the summer dresses I've been working on. I'm trying to integrate wool into summer wear. In case you don't know, I live on the Southern California coast, where we always enjoy a cool breeze, and sometimes overcast days in the 60s feel like the dead of winter! So, wool is always a welcome addition to my clothing line, and I do sell woolie lovelies in my Coronado shop all year round.




Lastly, here is (in my opinion) the possibly cutest item I've ever made! It's Owlie! A sweet little purse for a girl, or a cell phone holder for girls like me! The top on the right is nearly finished. It still needs it's needle felting finish, and I haven't yet photographed the owlie skirt that goes with it. The skirt fabric was my inspiration for the little purse. I have decided to list the purse in my etsy shop so I can see if I should go into production on this sweet accessory. I know it's going to sell the minute I put it at Austin's. It will head there tomorrow.

















Thanks for the visit. Now go have yourself a happy Spring sort of day!

Hi all, I know others of you have commented on this post, but there seems to be some sort of blogger bug with comments-? Crazy! Anyhow, hopefully unmoderated comments can be posted to blog as soon as they fix this problem...
