Gardening and my Finished Bag

It has taken over my life gardening has! I work 5 days a week at a fabulous (and bustling) garden center and on at least one of my days off I am working on my own landscaping and veggie garden. I am exhausted in the evenings but oh so happy. It feels great to be working again, especially at something I enjoy. I have been so busy that I completely forgot to post a picture of my completed Around About: pattern by the fabulous Amybel over at Knitting in my Backyarn.

Here it is in all it's glory! I have decided to use it as my new knitting project bag: it is much more practical having handles as opposed to the felted bowl I have used for so long.

New Path

This will be stating the obvious, but I haven't been blogging much lately. Things have been rather all over the place in my household. My husband has essentially been the sole breadwinner for the last 4 years but circumstances of late have made it apparent that we need a second income. I wish I could say that creating felted goodies is a booming business, but it is a specialized thing. Besides knitting I LOVE to garden and especially grow vegetables. I have been lucky enough to find a job at a fabulous local garden center AND it is F/T! That being said, I am not sure at this point how much I will be listing in my Etsy store- full days in the sun and on my feet are going to take some getting used to and I foresee many evenings of my going to bed early. I will also want to spend more of that evening time with my son and husband. Don't worry though, I am still an obsessive knitter and being around all that blooming beauty is going to make me want to needle-felt all sorts of flower bowls.

I love to do custom orders! Please keep me in mind for weddings, birthdays pre-ordered Christmas too.
