We had a good afternoon knitting today. Jane and Lynn are working on their summer t-shirts. Chris finished her second project a very lovely baby blanket. No class next Monday. Have a happy and safe 4th
My son surprised me this weekend by coming home. We are collaborating on our first creative project. We had fun. This warms my heart that he's man enough to wear my neon colors.
I got to work with this lovely family today. Teaching how to make art cloth. It's the perfect craft for mom's and kids of all ages to create together.
This has been a powerful week. Our world feels very challenging and uncertain. It's amazing that some people have chosen to persevere through the madness and rise above it with Grace and dignity. I'm thankful to be with all of these positive and inspiring people. Thank you for making my first venture in publishing a success. Let's continue to spread more Grace and Joy!
We had a great day in Monday's class. Jane is working on her summer t-shirt. Learning how to purl she's persevering and fine tuning her knitting skills. Amy wanted to macrame today and made this lovely wall hanging. Some days you want mindless crafting and a completed project. This is a fun one. Come join us sometime in our Open Studio on Wednesday's.

Claudia came back from her travels. It was so great to see her. Look at her blanket she is knitting. It will be big enough for a king size bed.

It's going to be an epic artsy week here on Hatteras Island. Join me this Wednesday and Thursday at Blue Pelican Gallery Gifts & Yarn from 10-1 making macrame.
I was so happy to see Nancy back visiting this summer. I met her last summer at Blue Pelican Gallery Gifts & Yarn and helped her to knit a beach tote. She came back this year to get some more pointers. I really enjoyed reconnecting with her today. I can't wait to see her finished project.
We all were struggling a little on our projects, but the ladies are moving along nicely. We should have a reveal in the near future.
