I LUV Etsy Swap! I recently participated in the Etsy Swap ( The person I created for loved gardening, natural materials, and has 4 children, so I created this monogrammed knit throw pillow in natural cotton for her, and hand painted on the dyes.

I received a couple of skeins of hand spun yarn from Hobbledehoy similar to this:, plus a couple of her button pins with flowers on them.

It was a fun experience, and I got to try out the filet-knit technique!

I just got a HUGE shipment of DK weight New Zealand wool yarn, and am putting the first dye efforts up on now. More to come, so check back often. I will also do custom orders!

For the Fourth of July I made up this purse and headband. They are for sale at Etsy. Those of you watching this space for Ebay collectibles sales, I think I am going to take a break from that and start again in September. It is too much to juggle that and all the summer activities.
