 New stuff including my "Stripped" line.  Vintage wood items that I have hand-sanded to "strip" off cheep varnish and restored with a magic potion of beeswax and mineral oils.

 I am a huge fan of the Missoni-style chevron pattern.  My friend sent me a pattern which I modified to use on a beanie.  I feel thrilled to be knitting up left-over Koigu sock yarn to make something so vibrant!

 OH BABY ... I love making jams and jellies.  I use a gorgeous Mauviel copper  jam pot to make small batches.  This latest batch of Habanero Apricot Jelly has some serious heat!  The Walnut Spreader was smokin' :)  I love to eat this jelly straight out of the jar but today I spread it on my favorite whole -wheat loaf from Manresa Bread.  So tasty ...

 When I first began carving wooden spoons, I ended up with a scoop design with a sturdy little handle and a nice deep bowl.  "Perfect," I thought.  I continue to make my scoops this shape because they feel solid and handsome and can be used for so many things.  Even a decorative holder for lucky penies found throughout my day.  Stay Lucky!

 Welcome Little One.  A new line of beanies and socks for babies!  With our children ages 18 and 20 and off to college, I guess I am feeling nostalgiac for those early years.  These make a beautiful gift for expecting couples ... just sayin'.  Available on special order.
