It's beginning to look....nothing like autumn in Texas, but it's still scarf season in my pot.

I am just going to let this stuff speak for itself. How I've been busying myself this week. Tomorrow I'll be at the Aspasians Art Fair in Rockwall. 200 vendors, wow! Should be an exciting day. My biggest market thus far. See you then!!

Exquisite, deliciously soft baby blankets...

In a gossamer, pearly blend of pinks and natural shimmering silk.
This blanket is Nuno felted onto organic natural coloured cotton gauze. My daughter did not want to let this one go.

The edges have since been blanket stitched and now look practically perfect in every way!

This ashen grey on powdery blue cotton is supple and downy. The edges are left raw and showcase the canvas of wool felt with a gentle border.
These blankets are made to swaddle a newborn, but are perfect for a lap blanket or lovey for any age.

Remember, pictures are always clickable so go ahead and check out the texture in detail. Fiber is hard to give enough credit to on film. It's pure luxury.

It looks like a millinery around here...

I've been working on hats for the past few weeks in the lead up to autumn and winter which is really prime woolly hat season, right?

Here are a couple that I finished up in the past couple of days.
My kids were lining up to pose with this jester-y number.
As obvious in the pictures, it fits nicely on both a 2yo and a 5yo.

This one is really gorgeous in person. Navy blue on the interior and the exterior layer is royal blue/navy/tiny bit of dark purple and tiny bit of deep sea green mixed with lovely strands of white silk.
I have started making removable brooch pins for my hats. This way you get that extra little embellishment when you're feeling fancy, and simplicity when you want to make more of an understatement. You can also use the pins on a jacket, bag, different hat, shirt, etc...

This one has a paisley/peacock feather inspired pin.

LOVE this hat. Really strong structure. Holds its firm shape nicely. Perfect as a sun hat as well as a warming, weather resistant covering.
The flowers, again, are a removable pin.

Stay tuned, more to follow this afternoon...
