It's Bloomin' Wednesday Already!!

Time is getting away from me!  I haven't posted in 3 days!  I seem to be busier than I have ever been in my life.  These past couple of weeks have been crazy.  And in addition to that crazy busyness, I have had a heavy heart full of worry for a dear friend of mine's sister, who is very, very sick and in the hospital.  Debbie was one year behind us in school.  And  her husband was a couple years ahead.  We have all spent many a summer trip to the river together when our kids were all younger, and before their busy lives, made our lives even busier.  Her name is Debbie. She could use all the prayers she could get.
I have been so busy with Bloomies, that I haven't even had the chance to put other things in my Etsy Shop.  Here is an order I just completed today.  I need to take it down to the shop tomorrow.
They won't be going on my tiered cake plates, of course.  But I thought they would be pretty to photograph this way.

These are some of my new colors.  Valentine, Deep Yellow, Cream, and Periwinkle.
My biggest seller is still Martini.
With this pretty Yellow becoming a close second.
I love this new Cream.
 Periwinkle.
Valentine.
I am still enjoying crochet and knitting.  I am finally moving along on my afghan for the cabin.  
I was inspired by a beautiful blanket that I saw on The Garden Bell's blog.  Kate is a master crocheter, and turns out one beautiful blanket after another.  This particular one, was the colors of the mountains.  I immediately thought of doing one for my Mom to have at the cabin.  So I wanted it to be, brown for the earth, greys's for the squirrels, purple for the sunsets, greens for the trees, and blues for the lake.  I am loving this yarn!  It is Encore.  Yummy!  Mom, you are going to love to cozy up with this by the fire!!!

i am so glad for your ETSY adventure. Do they automatically charge the customer for the shipping.....and are you able to keep up???
P.S. The blanket looks cozy

Your bloomies look so pretty on the plates! It looks like a big pyramid of crystal with a splash of color here and there :)

Wow you did crank those bloomies out! I love them. The girls at work are so excited. I bet the hairdressers buy them all first!

love the look of a waves 'ghan as opposed to an actual chevron/where there are hard triangle zig zags. beautiful goodies!

Kristi said...

That is so awesome that your bloomies are selling so well! They are adorable! I told my Mom to buy me one the other day but I don't think she did. Can you add a cream one to her tab and she can write you a check? I'm serious...she'll be okay with it...

Clara said...

You know I think these blooming flowers are the icing on the cake. I aDORe mine and it so cheers me up when I do venture out.

Thanks for the linkie. Glad to see you are working away on something fun with yarn and are still enjoying it. I will look for the Circle pattern. They are so fast and easy.

OK, it's 5pm and I have yet to get lunch. Getting Ditzy.

Those little flowers are so beautiful! I can see them on my coat, on a straw hat, one on each toe of my shoes. Lovely!
