Proud Mummy

As a mother I have always encouraged my children to be creative and use their gifts and talents, with my boys this has definately been sport but with Janelle she has been creating since she was little and used to blow people away with her little drawings and neat colouring in as pre-schooler. She can do most crafts but sewing is her passion and my house is being over run with fabrics and sewing notions which is fast overtaking my knitting stash, I kid you not!

Well of course as a student she is always looking for a bit of extra income so I suggested that she open an Etsy shop and start selling her items, she has been very busy creating and so I thought I would share some of them with you.

Adorable little hair ties


Her shop is called janellish.

I have been creating a few new items too, Sringtime Bandit shawl for the BWM op shop karma swap on Ravelry


and fingerless arm warmers for a customer


Until next time,
happy knitting.

I am enjoying your blog a lot. I recently ordered an aviator hat on Etsy from you and I can't wait to get it. I love the aviator with the flower, very lovely.
