while i enjoyed a quiet day at home today doing some gardening and other ‘homely’ things, something amazing happened

just now, i checked my stats and found out there were 1,017 views on my blog in just one day – 23 september, i.e. today!

thank you, everyone, from the bottom of my heart xoxo

The Back Story: The name of the yarn is Charlemagne and we are sold out which means we will work fast to get more made. The pattern is set to release as soon as she/he has a name. We chose the name “Charlemagne” for the color purple because this was his favorite color. Purple is royal. Purple is also the highest vibration in our chakras which is where, ironically, the King wears his crown. Jill came up with this beauty last Summer and it seems to be a favorite because of it’s subtle highlights…kind of like the luster on the crown.

So give it your best shot at naming the shawl. This is a beautiful example of cables and lace. If you know the girls at Suzoo’s then you will know…

cropped-here-the-frailest-leaves-of-me-2-rita-summers.jpg

only learned how to do it this morning

i could have paid someone on wordpress $129 to do it for me, but i felt i was up to the challenge

cheaper too

some of the images haven’t appeared yet but i’m working on that

you can still access stitchedupmama via the original blog

but you can now access it all from the heading at the top of this page

best of all, i can edit both blogs from the one place …

feelling quite smug!

600, 200 and 1000
