Recent Portrait

My most recent portrait.  It has been awhile since I have done one, but I enjoyed the time to just sit quietly and work! Portraits run $75.00 per face, $5.00 for shipping if necessary.

Overshot Knitter's Pin for the knitter who has everything!

These little pins are handwoven in the overshot pattern and then created into a "knitting bag" pin for the knitter in your life.  Woven just like granny used to do, this is heirloom quality weaving in miniature! Measures about 1.5 inches by 1 inch. Lovingly handmade by an artisan here in Greenville who has her own sheep in a pasture outside her window.

Stained Glass

We have been creating these two stained glass windows to put into existing windows in our new place of business, 2Marthas. Martha made the lower one and I, Martha, made the other.  As you can see we have very distinct styles.  We were going to try to add the dark "leaded glass" look to them with the liquid lead, but we have decided that we prefer the lighter look of just glass on glass.  It goes well with our "no perfection allowed" worldview/workspace!  Stop by for coffee and a look around if you are in the Greenville IL area!  We are here Tues - Friday from 11 to 4 and Saturdays from 10 - 2.
