I feel like I have been non-stop lately with my crafting which is a good thing. Lately I've been working a lot on my shawl pins and have four new designs I'm working on right now. One I did last night and it turned out pretty good, I just need to re-design one part of it and it will be super cute. I also got my bulk order in so I have 16 that I need to make.

This weekend I plan on shifting back to my jewelry. The craft fair that they were going to have where I work early May has been postponed to who knows when, but before November. So I haven't been as adamant about getting a stock of jewelry made up. Last week I did go out of my norm and experimented with wrapping multiple stones at one. This one is an oval rose quartz stone with two red rhodochrosite stoness above and below. It's huge though length wise, at least 3 inches. But for someone looking for something totally different, they'll love it.

I posted all three of my shawls yesterday on Etsy. So far the red appears to be the popular one view wise. I also finished another shawl similar to the red one but in a blue/green colorway, plus if I remember correctly it is a silk/alpaca blend which is a hand painted yarn from Great Adirondack Yarns. They have some awesome colors. This yarn was a bit pricey so it will be listing for more than what the others are in my shop currently. I was hoping to get some nice outdoor photos of it this afternoon but with the weather we're having today, I don't think that's going to happen.

Oh, and Little G loved his new Cars towel. He about jumped out of the bathtub just to be able to use it. Here's a quick cute picture of him hunting for eggs in the backyard for easter.
