Willow Mesa has been launched ...

Yes, I realize I have not been posting of late, but there have been things going on. One is getting a new business adventure off the ground. Join us if you like! Willow Mesa blog:

We also are on Facebook (Willow Mesa), so if you want to keep up with us there, we would certainly appreciate that as well!

Now, on a personal Hey Grandma! things. I did something totally fun! I signed up for a Mug Rug Swap! I am working on my two rugs today, and I'll share the pictures of them when they are completed and before I mail them to their new secret home. I don't this type of thing very often, but I do believe I will change my tune! This is lots of fun! I can't wait to see the two Mug Rugs I get and from where they come from .... what a great way to meet someone new!

Ok, I'm back to the sewing room!

Hey Grandma! wishes you a great rest of the day!!!

Got a hankering to knit! .....

It has been awhile since the urge to knit hit me, but when I saw this scarf in the recent issue of Belle Armoire (Love, Love Love that magazine!) I knew locating the needles was the thing to do.

Actually, I couldn't find my needles for the life of me! Hobby Lobby had them on sale this week at 40% off. See? It was meant to be! LOL

So, this afternoon I began the scarf. Thank goodness for google, as I was having a hard time remembering a few things associated with knitting. It was great to see a picture and remember what to do! Lets me know I have not totally lost it LOL (I have a birthday coming up and the "loosing it" seems valid these days LOL)

I worked in the sewing room for a bit today too .... pictures on that later.
Hey Grandma! wishes you all a great rest of the day!

I'm Dreaming of a White New Year ....

And I got it too! There is a ski resort 45 minutes from here that was not sure if they were going to be open for Christmas. Well, at the last minuet they received their snow, but we here in the valley did not benefit from that storm. Lo and Behold what did our eyes see appear, but clouds in the sky with snow falling .... ok, just couldn't find anything to rhyme with appear .... I sew and cook, not write poetry. teehee

January 1, 2011 .... January 1, 2011 ....2011 2011 Practicing the year so I write it correctly on the first check I write LOL

So, how many of you admit to being technologically inept? I raise both arms and wave wildly! I am a Facebook fan ... I love keeping up with family and friends with whom I can not see regularly. I love supporting cottage industries that many folks have been creating. Now I have enough trouble playing the FB game without having FB put little hitches in the way to entrap me. Long story short. If you have a friend who has the Etsy tab on their Facebook page, go ahead and click on it to see the wonderful things they may be selling on Etsy. But if you click on it and it directs you to click on another button ... DON'T! My Etsy page was put on someone else's today ... sorry Elizabeth (blush) Hope that can get taken off of there ....

Still waiting on my ever talented niece to work up the design on our new business cards. As soon as they are ready, Hubby and I will be getting the new business off it's feet. Looking forward to creating again with a wider palette of merchandise.

Hey Grandma! wishes you a beautiful beginning to a new year!
