moustache cookies

made for my daughter's birthday paty
sugar cookies
shaped like moustaches
decorated with thin royal icing


{we did not have a moustache cookie cutter so we used a paper template and cut the cookies with a knife. That made the edges a bit uneven}

enjoying the process

from beginning to end

enjoy designing the pieces {all of them}
choosing the colors,
the yarns,

enjoy making every single prototype... myself
yep, I make all of them
then I send the prototype to Bolivia
and the ladies in Cochabamba knit the collection

enjoy seeing my drawings and ideas come to life
even if sometimes they don't turn out as I planned,
but I love them all!!!

enjoy knowing that with each new piece I design,
my little project in Bolivia
will provide work for many women

the market

no visit to Bolivia would be complete
without a visit to the local market
that's what I did today
and found exactly what I was looking for...
some "aguayos" and "frazadas"
in beautiful
bold colors

{and carrying her baby in an aguayo}
