Lately, and random, but all about fall!  Autumn blooming roses, clematis, hydrangea and spirea.  Sungold tomatoes from the garden of a friend.  Working on vintage ticking zip bags.  Loving this herringbone wool tote for fall.  Foggy Sunday morning in Essex.  It's almost October...can't believe how September blew by.

Every fall, I look forward to adding woolen pillows and totes to my shop.  This fall I created a small collection using the softest, prettiest wool I could find.  There are 2 pillows and totes in each of the three color ways.  Choose from Blue Plaid, Brown Plaid, and Brown Herringbone.  I just added them to my shop.
They are perfect for bringing an autumn feel to your home or your outfit.

Also, I just added a Pinterest link to my sidebar, finally!  I'm working on putting together a nice collection of pins for browsing on rainy fall days.

My Superwash Merino Scarves are now in the shop!  100% Merino wool.  100% hand knit by me in Cambridge, MA.
Superwash merino is the softest wool I've ever found and I've been using it exclusively in my cowls and scarves for the past couple of years.
This fall, I wanted to do something a little different with my scarf collection.  Instead of making many smaller hand knit items, I am focusing on making just a few super special scarves.  These are the first two in a series of four.  Each one of the four is unique and won't be repeated..  Each scarf takes between 16 to 20 hours to hand knit.  They are a labor of love to create and I hope you will enjoy them!

New pillows in the shop!  Grey and Cream Polka Dot pillows and Pink Diamonds pillows are 100% cotton. Purple pillows and Navy pillows are 100% linen.  I love how these colors and patterns look together, soft and cheerful for fall.  I'm totally obsessed by the polka dot ones, but I love them all.

The hydrangeas are from my garden and had the good grace to turn this deep purple color to complement the pillows.  Thanks, Nature.

Hi there!  Life has been super busy lately with the start of school and fall!  I've been working away getting my shop ready for an update.  Soon, soon, soon, I hope to have some fabulous things in my shop to show you.  Got some lovely hand knits and woolen totes and pillows all ready to go...just need to get them photographed and out there.

So, I just found out yesterday that I have been chosen as one of the Top 25 Etsy Moms of 2013 by Babble! I'm very excited and honored!  You can see the article here or click on the link in my sidebar.  Here I am with Will and Lucy, looking my most mom-ish.  By the way, not sure what is up with the Yankees of the family are Red Sox fans.  Go Sox!

Happy update coming so soon...I hope!
