Still destashing!

I can’t believe all of the felt I had accumulated!  A lot have sold but I’m still destashing, and kind of sad about what I could have made.  There were grand plans for needlefelted wools and felt combined into hats, mittens, brooches.  My least favorite part of the process was the actual sewing.  The shopping, planning, needlefelting and designing was the best!  I should get myself an elf..

 This one is ready to be sewn into a hat.

      

These were going to be trivets..

These are done and in my shop:  Scarves made from pants and a skirt..

 

I made a few last year with needlefelted cherries, and if I ever have a spare second, I’ll make more.  I’m keeping the wool pants and skirts, for now!

All things cherry

Previously I mentioned I’m about to do something huge.. a new direction in my life.. that involves cherries.  Once the ink is dry on the contract, I’ll post details.

 

In the meantime, I thought I’d give links to some of my favorite cherry-themed items on Etsy.

A vintage tablecloth,

A camera strap,

An ipod or cellphone case ,

A cupcake bath bomb with a cherry on top,

A Cherry Blossom Silver Ring

A Cherry key fob

If you’d like to see what I have listed on Etsy that are cherry-themed, here they are.

sandals on the dock, cherry blossom, and cherry on a plate.

Do you have any cherry themed items to share?  If so, post a comment!

Earrings

I’m drowning in boring paperwork for my new venture (see below), so I thought I’d show off one of my favorite Etsy sellers.

Nicholasandfelice make the most amazing silver jewelry!

Here are a few lovely samples in their shop:

Three Little Swirls All in a Row Sterling Silver EarringsBright and Shiny Olive Green and Teal Glass Earrings Ebb and Flow Swinging Spiral Aluminum EarringsHappy Little Orange Flower and Leaves EarringsSpiral Swirls Small Aluminum Wirework Barrette

Actually, I just bought the first two..  

Can’t.  Resist.  Earrings.

Anyways, its not that they NEED more exposure, they are very successful.  But with over 3000 sales and ONE HUNDRED PERCENT positive feedback, they deserve it!

Hats

I love to knit (hence the Etsy store name, JMillenLovesToKnit)..

I also love to use the word HENCE.  He he.

I have made so many chemo caps in the last 2 years that I can literally knit them in my sleep.  I went to see Mama Mia the other night and REALLY wanted to take my knitting… but chickened out.  Maybe next time.

Here are some hats, one is for sale in my shop and the other is going to the oncologist to put in the ‘free hats’ basket.

For some reason I also like to knit baby hats, but there are no babies in my life right now.  The kids are in college and we hope to keep it that way for a few more years!  So I have to list them on Etsy.  Here’s one, I call it the bling hat:

Sure wish I had a real live model!  Some day..

Politics

These caught my eye last night at the fabric store:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Political cotton fabric!

I snatched it up, listed some on Etsy, and my brain is spinning with all of things I can make with it. 

Any suggestions?

I haven’t been in a treasury in a while over at Etsy, so I thought I’d give some thanks to Terryberry for including my pencils card in her rainbow treasury.
