I'm still around :)



I have certanly been a busy lady these last few months!  I've had a lot of little projects, plus after that crazy winter - I've been trying to enjoy the summer months as much as possible.  I'm happy to say I am still around...although, still busy :)  I'll be trying to update over here when I can....kind of hoping to streamline all this social media...not sure exactly how I'm going to do that yet. :)  Thought I would share a latest publication in Stuffed Magazine in the meantime.  There are so many cute softie makers in this edition!!  Including my dear friend Lili :-)

Winter Weekends

 
For the last few years I've had my eye on these beautiful hand knit stockings from Sundance.
And this year, I finally started making our very own. I've finished the one on the left for my husband (his color choice), and I'm working on mine now.  I had never knit a sock before, and followed this pattern I found for free online (with the help of some youtube videos too, that heel was a little tricky at first try), and used some natural wool/alpaca and cotton yarns.  Happy winter weekends!

Happy Holidays!  A little special happening over at the shop until midnight on cyber Monday.

THEFT!


 

Does this work look familiar to you?
I have some really sad news to share with you all.  Some folks in Milan Italy think it's OK to steal my work.  Not only copying the dolls...but stealing my illustrations to promote their "Handmade" show.  These are photos taken from their Facebook site.  I am beyond disbelief.  I feel sick that I have to create a post like this, but these people need to be known.
 
Just so we're all clear: Copyright © 2013 SimpliJessi. It is not OK take any of the content, graphics, artwork or photgraphy from this blog, or any of my sites without my permission).
