The needles are hot – the studio is warm …

Overall, it’s a pretty cool place to be right now … The weekend is over(!), and while no one in my ‘lil ER had to endure green vomit on St Patty’s day – there were some interesting intoxicants.  I, however, was in the heart ‘wing’ – ruling out one MI after another …

I finished knitting my butterfly hat … here’s my daughter (face not revealed – to protect the innocent???) modeling:


And, to prove me wrong … future Shriner poster-child DH modeling (first attempt) …


The hat does stretch though (it’s good to have faith), and he proved it will accommodate those with super-sized melons … I think he was going for a Vogue-pose, but all I hear is ‘Arrreaa Rrruug’   Smile


I am now ‘flying’ through a reusable grocery bag … [knitting needles clacking furiously in background].  I’ll post a pic when mine is done, but you can get the pattern here, and here is the designer’s photo:


Meanwhile – DH is almost done with his ‘Pool’ stained glass window.  Now to frame and install it … [tick, tock …]


Studio News:   My pendant shades are coming along … but I’m not thrilled with the shape.  I think I’ll try taking them just a tad further on a taller form, but … I’m also eyeing some new molds (… shhh, don’t tell DH) …


Sometime this week I should  start in on the monumental task of organizing the taxes … YUCK!  But NOT today …

About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at
