Hello friends,
Do you sometimes feel like going out on a limb and creating something out of your comfort zone?
A couple of weeks ago, I found this great blog, totally by accident:

After reading the post, I was enthralled... I promptly made a trip to Joann's and bought a couple of yards of ribbed knit cotton.
After about an hour, I had this beautiful! So pretty and so easy to make!
The directions are easy to follow, and the results....judge for yourself.

 You can wear this cardigan closed with a pretty brooch

I love the way the sides cascade down the front.

On the shop front, it's been fairly busy. I had a custom order I have to share, I SO like the results:

This is the Holdall, this time in Spice canvas, with cordovan leather. What do you think?

Have a great week!

Featured on Etsy

Hello friends,
Something pretty exciting happened today: one of my bags was featured on the Etsy blog.
I checked my shop stats after I got home, as I usually do, and the view count was almost 600...unusual to say the least... So I posted a question on the "bugs" forum thinking that maybe it was a glitch, and a very nice Etsy admin let me know that my leather shopper had been featured on an Etsy blog.
Here is the link.

So exciting, I had to share.
Take care,
