Dyeing with Hibiscus, part 2
Last week I wrote about my hibiscus dyeing experience and how I was pretty disappointed with the color results. Since hibiscus is supposed to be very sensitive to tap water, I used distilled water for the entire process. The results I ended up with were pre...

I am ready for 2016!!

Octopussy
A few years ago I saw an image of Erin Weckerle's crocheted chandelier in a magazine and ever since I have wanted a version for the shop. We had the perfect chandelier for cozying in the front room and when we decided to move I knew that we would have to ta...
