What Dreams are Made of....

Although the chilly days of Winter have transitioned into the warmness of Spring here in Texas, I discovered something I simply had to have in my friend Donna's ETSY SHOP...

It's a gorgeous, hand-knit cowl by the ridiculously, insanely talented Donna of Brynwood Needleworks.
And I am beyond convinced that dreams are made of precisely the same yarn that Donna used to create this creamy, dreamy masterpiece!

In fact, I'm not the only one....Donna has sold the design of this glorious creation to the worldwide leaders in the fiber arts,  Pagewood Farm! Way to go, Donna!

Here was my first peek at the beauty within...

LOVE the tag, Donna!

You know you want one too, right?
I mean, how could you not?
You can get your very own right  HERE.

Here's a look at some of Donna's other dreamy creations, all available via her Etsy Shop...

The problem isn't deciding whether to buy, it's narrowing it down! So much beauty, and so much talent in one gal's fingertips!

I'm off now to do some more Warrenton prep...the days are slipping away, and I didn't get anything at all Warrenton-related done today, as I had to work a 12 hour shift at the hospital. I'm a Respiratory Therapist, employed full-time, for all those new folks reading that might not know. Same gig tomorrow, so it's really gonna be crunch time come Monday!

I load up the Beverly Hillbillies truck Tuesday morning, minus Granny, and head to the Promised Land (aka Warrenton), to help Effie get set up in Bar W Field.

*** On a personal note, if I haven't been able to make the blog rounds lately, please accept my apologies and know that I am reading each and every comment, and I appreciate y'all more than you know! Once I return from Warrenton AND get moved into my downstairs booth (AND get the Etsy shop re-opened and re-stocked with new treasures!) I'll be able to catch up with all of you again. I miss y'all! I hate feeling isolated in my little Fiona and Twig bubble here, I think you folks are waaaaaay more interesting than me, so I look forward to getting caught up on my blog reading!

Paying all of you visits and leaving you comments is never a chore or an obligation for me, it is a pleasure. It just pains me when I think that perhaps I've hurt someone or made them feel slighted due to the serious time constraints I've been under these past couple of weeks.

Have a wonderful night and a blessed Sunday!

Dear Anne:
Your post today brought me to tears. You are such a generous and loving person in your own right...and then you write this post about me and my Etsy shop in such glowing terms that I'm blushing, too!

Thank you so much for all your kind words. I'm so happy that you like your cowl, and I hope you feel a warm hug from me whenever you wear it.

Love you, my friend. Good luck in Warrenton! Wish I could be there, too!

Marie said...

I haven't been to Warrenton in so long, I may need to make a trip this year. I hope the weather cooperates for you, we've had some pretty Spring weather lately amid the winter spells. The cowl is gorgeous- would love one. Must put it on the wishlist!

Unknown said...

Hi Darlin'. You are always such a busy girl. I don't know how you get it all done. I love and cherish your comments and understand when life gets busy. I'm not nearly as busy as you and am so behind in mine.

I love the cowl you got from Donna. She is way talented and so sweet.

Hope you get some rest in between all you have to do. Enjoy Warrenton and know I'm always thinking about you.
Hugs....Tracy :)

Hon, you and I are in the SAME boat time-crunch wise!! Trust me! Keeping up with the my own blog plus reading others that I love (like yours!) has been a bit difficult lately because of soooo much going on... But in a way, that's a good thing, too! :)

You TOTALLY beat me to it, in terms of blogging about Donna's shop!!! I even saved a link to her blog on my favorites bar on my computer to remind me to blog about her things.... and alas, the BUSY-NESS has kept me from it. SO glad you blogged about her things -- they looks sooo soft and warm and feminine!

Great things are going on for you and we're all so happy for you -- as women, who better to understand the time constraints life gives us?? Take care of all you need to do -- we'll be here waiting. :)

Donna's work and blog are favorites of mine. I love everything she makes, but the needle cases are one of my very favorites. The needle case and pillow shown here are adorable in the "Alice..." theme.
