Up and Running

My Sister's (and a little mine) Esty's shop is up and running.  Please check my side bar for easy access.  Claudia is amazingly talented.  She crochets beautifully, quilts and makes the most incredible things out of very little.  Please check out her blog for all of her inspiring ideas and check out the new Etsy shop for her crochet scarves, my shawls and in the future lots of fun projects.

 This has been an exciting project for both of us.  We are having a difficult time in our lives for many reasons.  A big part of it is watching our Mother and Father decline so rapidly, but sometimes not rapid enough.  So a new shop where we can sell things we love to make has been a fun respite in our time of stress.

 Are you ready for even more pictures of shawls?  I just finished this today and wanted to show you before I head off to work.  Can I tell you how much I love it?  Made from Kertzer Tiara 72% Wool, 27% Nylon and 1% Polyester.  It is soft and really beautiful.

 I am not sure you can see the metallic thread looping around the yarn.  It is a lovely touch and adds just a teeny, tiny bit of sparkle.

I am frantic to get this in the mail to my sister so she can photograph it in style.

I promise to show the progress on my blue crochet shawl very soon.  I have been crocheting a bit in the evenings so I am getting closer to being finished.  Have a wonderful Thursday everyone.

Your shawls are all so lovely it would be hard to pick a favorite. I missed yesterday's post and trying to catch up. I bet you are excited about the Etsy shop and wish you lots of success and plenty of business. I will check it out soon as I leave here. Trying to keep warm here in Ohio...we are expected to get a bit of snow soon..but can't complain, we have had beautiful sunny days here and there.
Take care, (((Hugs))),
Susanne :)
