crafted goodness...:)

a peek @ what we've been working on lately...;)

since moving in with us, my sister samantha, has become a partner in the blue skies dragonflies etsy shop!

our first project was to sewing up the sweet autumn gnomes...

she also hand-sewed these super stylish legwarmers from upcycled sweaters...
perfect for a night on the town...
or dance class!

gorgeous rainbow mitts for our 7 year old...
knit from a plant-dyed, superwash merino yarn i bought from mamajude (etsy)

i used the same pattern as always, though i knit them on size 5 needles.

saint nicholas (peg people) for the bits of goodness advent calendar/stocking swap...

aren't they cute?!? for our second slot in this swap, i knit up a lot of treasure pouches.
aydin hand wove this pouch for our friend jacob's 10th birthday...i love it!

knit acorns, following a tutorial posted by our friend linda @ natural suburbia.

our friend jenny (jacob's mom) requested these as a gift for his 10th birthday...very fun to make!
ahhh...here he is now! (& wearing a birthday crown that i made a few years back. :)

more mitts...there are a second pair for orin, our 10 year old. i made him a pair last christmas & he requested another pair for this christmas...he LOVES them!

part of this yarn was dyed, using natural dyes, at our 4-H club a few months back.
happy handwork! <3
