She's a little Squirrely

On a personal note I finally got a new computer. "hurray!" I spent 4 months in the stone age only using a computer when I had someone elses close by. I am reconnected to the world and it feels so good!

Today is all about the squirrels. These quirrels are available in my etsy shop Cherry Lane Jane.

The first is a brand new sweater bib. You can see the listing here.

Sweater Inspired

I have been without a computer for months now. I only use my husbands laptop when he is home at the same time as I am, which isn't very much. With out a computer all day I have spent a lot more time outside, crafting and just hanging with my kids. It has been kinda nice, but don't tell my husband that! I am a bit disconnected from the world though and that's why I am checking in to update on what my little hands have been crafting these days. I am still loving the sweater recycling. These are my newest repurposed sweater creations........

All can be seen on my flickr page cherrylanejane

From Vintage to Spooky

I just wanted to stop in and say hey. This summer has been crazy busy with the kids home from school and all. I haven't done much crafting, but I did get a chance to take 4 vintage cloth napkins and hand stitch felt Halloween images to them. I was thinking about making them into pillows, but instead they ended up a single table runner. I am off to do more swimming and enjoying my summer!

Hugs,Liz :)

Here is the finished product which can be found in my etsy shop, Cherry Lane Jane.

I am happy to give a big thanks to Karen of Mystic Wynd for doing a spotlight of CherryLaneJane! I did a little interview that you can read over on her blog. http://mysticwynd.blogspot.com/ Please take a minute to stop on over and read a bit about my shop and my childhood.

here is a bit of what you will see......

I grew up on a large 200 hundred acre farm that was no longer in use, except for the fields of corn and soy bean. Cherry Lane Farm was our haven in a suburban town filled with newly developed neighborhoods, soccer fields, and shopping centers. We lived atop a hill over looking Cincinnati and the view was breath taking! We used the old farm land as our playground


I have been in the middle of a remodel in the basement. We moved into this house and the basement was finished....well kinda finished. We have lived with it for 2yrs and thought it was time to get rid of the yellowish orange walls, the rusty orange trim, and the awful dark blue carpet that shows everything! If you sneeze it shows the dust and that makes our poor vacuum work overtime. Especially since my husband has a bit of a clean freak streak in him. It is a large double room that we use for a second family room and the other side is for the kids playroom.

Today the carpet guys are installing the new carpet so I am thrilled! As soon as we have it all done I will post the after shoots, but for now here is a peek at the horrible before pictures. The stairwell had lattice on one side and wood paneling on the other..... yuck!


this is it after the carpet was removed and the walls were primed for the new paint. It already looks ten times better.


I have been so very busy with ripping carpet out and sanding and painting that I haven't shared any of my new items lately. Here are a few of the new listing at CherryLaneJane.etsy.com. All but one are made from reclaimed vintage sweaters.

As Always Hugs, Liz:)
