heaven...

i'm in heaven!  just look at this big bunch of beautiful yarn that i recently received from my friend, rachel-marie, over at her awesome etsy shop...



gorgeous handspun, handdyed wool.  isn't it just heavenly?  i can't wait to get knitting with it! can you tell i prefer the warmer side of things when it comes to color?  i love sunshine and sunsets and oranges and pinks.  that's me.

and here is my sweet maya, drawing her rainbows...while i was organizing my yarn.  she has a definite artistic side...


after drawing and organizing, it was dress up time.  here is maya wearing her baby in a sling (notice we still have our christmas tree up! - she loves it so we haven't taken it down yet)...


and lastly, the latest custom order hat i had the honor of making for my friend cadi, using some beautiful yarn from waldorf friends at dreamincoloryarn.com...



yours in sunshine and rainbows,

shelley

I can't wait to get the hat in the mail. It looks lovely! I also can't wait to see who will - one day - wear it! :-)
Your daughter is adorable! A budding artist indeed! :-)
