Whats been keeping me busy


I thought I would share with you a wonderful order I received that has been keeping me so busy. These little down in the meadow treasures have been shipped off to England. They will be displayed in an old little English village shop window, waiting for a treasure browser to snap them up. Knitting is truly my passion. I love the constant rhythm of my wooden knitting needles. I love the smell of the wool and the feeling I get as I settle down in my chair to cast on. I am indeed blessed having found such a comforting hobby.

Wow Suz you have been busy! That is so wonderful! I must say knitting is my passion too, I love it. There is nothing better than to sit in the afternoon sun, sipping tea, knitting away with a good friend to chat with....

The Mielie bag is lovely...

Tammy your treasure bag is beautiful!

Have a great weekend my dear friend...

So, so happy for you, Suzanne. You certainly do create many beautiful treasures. Seeing all your creations together on the table is wonderful. And another order, wow, you go, mama!!! I would love to visit that shop and see all your lovelies together although I am sure they are snapped up really quickly.
Best wishes

Hi Kelly

It's been a wonderful blessing having met Craig. He has just moved from my home town to "Wells". I have seen the photos and you can just imagine how I am itching to go there. They live in this lovely little village and have an interior design shop there. He said he was placing my goodies in a little bay window. This was all for the opening of his shop for Spring. Are you far from Wells? I have since had to complete another order for him so, I am sure there will be plenty.

Warm regards
Suzanne
