My Husband

This is my husband's craftmenship. I did tell you ladies & gents that we are a family that is good with our hands? Well if I didn't, I will now.
My husband is a home improvement contractor and my oldest works with dad. You can see his great work at the Urban Muse or the Lounge here in Denville.

This is a beatufull home in Paramus that he completed this past winter.

A job well done by Fortunato Construction Incorporated!!
No job is too small or too big for them.

Another Designer

My first time designers are coming along and some are at the finish line. Here is Mary the second to finish. Mary used a slightly heavy worsted cotton with slubs, which made this sweater perfect wear for those cool evening by the beach. Also it can transition to a autumn sweater.
A perfect fit is a great feeling of accomplishment! Great job Mary :)
This is for a not yet born grandbaby! It is a Sublime pattern & Yarn. Sooo soft baby is going to love it. The grandmother also enjoyed making it. :)

Italy's earthquake

You all know that we sister are Italian born with still lots of connection to our native land. We feel relief that none of our family members or friends were in the earthquake area of Aquila but just the same we all feel sadden by it.
My husbands is affiliated with Italian American Forum and they will be locating a family to assist directly, without any bureaucratic involvement. We hope to help raise funds ourselves and add to the IAF . Therefore if anyone is interested in helping us, please stop by the shop. There is a humongous need. More than one town was effected. Millions of people lost their home.
Please do try to give a little, even just a dollar, if we all pitch in we can help them rebuild.
Thank you so very much!!

Hellen has been a busy bee knitting away these beautiful blankets.
