I am so excited to present to you my latest pattern. It was designed for my best friend Lori. It is now officially published and available online for purchase for just $3.00 as a pdf(pattern downloadable file)! It took me two days to write and edit it. It took me three to four days to publish it. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of it!

Thank you so much for all your support everyone! Abby

New Photos, new items

These are some photos of a new item that I am introducing to my etsy store as well as new photos of items that are already in the store. First ones are of some hand spun yarn made of Corridale wool fiber. I loved playing with this one. It's a 2 ply yarn with the weight of DK or light weight worsted. To knit with would require size U.S. 4-6 or Euro 3.5-4.25mm. I love these colors always have and always will, since I have been a very young child. Teal or Turquoise.

These other photos are of some baby booties that I made. I took new photos hoping that it would help sales a little bit more. I know its hard right now with the economy the way that it is. I try to keep all my cost down very low for that reason alone. I thought that I would make baby booties for my online etsy store because it seems like I am always hearing about someone who is having a baby. It's a fun and unique gift to give that is very special for the receiver. I hope you enjoy looking at the photos and if you are interested in my products feel free to stop by the shop sometime.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Photo shoot with my sisters!

I was so excited to get together and have a photo shot with my sisters. I didn't realize just how much fun that it was going to be for us all. We had a blast! As we took the photos, my youngest sister laughed so hard I couldn't believe that she could even continue with it. I started to model and I became extremely goofy. It was a contagious feeling of happiness and much laughter. So here are the result of the shoot. This was for my etsy store by the way. These are not on any other website. Just here to share with my Re*New fans! So you can see just how silly and goofy that I can get.

This is of me and my sisters which my sisters son took(he is only 4 years old)!

 Me trying to show the size of the crystal necklace that was extracted from Crystal Park near Polaris, Montana. You can find this and other jewelry on my sisters etsy site: Soon to be added to her store so be looking for it. She also has an amazing bracelet all made from these Crystals. I think they are so cool!
 Yep, having a bit of trouble getting this one on. No, I am not drunk. Well maybe with much laughter!
 A bit to far down on my head I think. What do you think?
 Preciously funny!
 This one made my sons and I nearly pee our pants off!
 This one too!
 Cat Woman or something, I don't really know what I was trying to do here, except to be really silly!

 There I go again puckering my lips! Seems to be a common thing for me!
 This is what I call my ridem' Cowboy stance! Way to goofy for me. I can't believe that I did that. That one almost made me pee my pants with laughter. I didn't even know that my sister took this one.
Little Miss Pris! I call this one my delicate petite pose. I am not really sure that this is me, but it was fun to pose for it at any rate!

St. Paul's Episcopal Blessing of the Animals

We do a blessing of the animals every year. This year was a specially fun because our pews where outdoors. There was a nice variety of dogs and other animals including several bunny rabbits and a beautiful chicken. I managed to take a photo of most of the animals but not all for my camera was failing me. Its very old and the last photo that I attempted to take was blurry, I tried three times. Might be time for a new camera! Just before our Priest started to bless them one of the rabbits got loose and there were about 12 people running after it. It was saved just in time for its blessing though. Here are the results from the blessing of the animals, enjoy!

He's Bruno

She's Bruni (short for Brunhilda). She especially needed blessing because the next day she was to go into the OR (operating room) to get her teeth pulled! Ouch!!!!!

She's Tana (short for Montana)! Tana was so excited to be meeting so many animals. Yep, she's a social bug! I had her by the leach for a few minutes and she had the strength to pull her own sled.
