I made a bunch of little Mochi Mochi Land felted hearts Friday night, and spent a large part of Saturday morning felting them and sewing some of them together as a gift for a friend. Her hearts were filled with catnip instead of stuffing, as little catnip toys for her kitties.

I also made a rainbow’s worth of hearts for my younger sister. I still have to sew those together and stuff them, but I’m not in a rush. And I promise that tonight I will post pictures of the hearts. Tonight I am also going to finish my Crafty Alien clam, and get pictures of that posted. It only took me a couple of hours to get the clam knitted, and I got 34 heart halves knitted in a matter of hours. These small projects are so gratifying. It’s nice to start and finish a project so quickly!

Other good news: I am starting to get my supplies in for my etsy shop. Last night I was able to put together 5 top whirl drop spindles, made with red or black shafts, and red agate whorls. My boyfriend is making a jig for me so that I will be able to drill exactly in the center of the shafts so the eye hook will be centered; so my first batch of spindles should be finished this week. I also ordered supplies to make more drop spindles out of different stones. I should be getting my supplies for my sea themed stitch markers, and for my knitted sterling silver necklaces. And I am about halfway done with my felted messenger bag strap covers. AND, I have two knitted t-shirt area rugs done and ready to be listed, as soon as my shop is done being constructed.

Which brings me to the next items on my to-do list. I need to finish the final draft of my logo and scan it. Then I need to make an etsy shop banner, avatar, business cards and thank you cards with my logo. I will probably work on that tonight for a while, as I can’t get much more done with my products until my supplies arrive.
