Thanks to some wonderful Facebook friends, I finally figured how to take decent pictures with my 1/2 way decent camera.

Here are some newborn hats that will be posted in my Etsy shop shortly. If you know of anyone looking for hats as photography props, send them my way!

Crocheted Premie Hat

Chunky Handknit Newborn Hat

I LOVE this yarn. It's hand dyed and handspun and this was the last of my stash.

One more...This yarn is from a sweater I found on clearance at Kohl's (a women's sweater), and it looks MUCH better as a hat!

Be ready Etsy...A. Ashley Designs is BACK!

Holy Cow

It's only taken me 6 months to try to figure out what email address and password I used to set up this blog! Grr....after some time poking around the message boards on Blogger, I FINALLY figured it out! So, I'm going to be up and running again with fun goodies from A. Ashley Designs to share and to list in my Etsy shop!

Stay tuned...

Long Time No See!

Sad to think that it's been almost a year since i last posted. That being said, A. Ashley Designs is still in business and has some fun goodies listed on Etsy. We are in the process of renovating our basement so that A. Ashley Designs will have a permanent workspace other than the dining room! Once the room is finished I will post some pictures to share!

Check out our fun waffle headbands and kufi hats! If you see something you like or have something else in mind, let me know and I'll make it happen!

Once again, my friend Sunee amazes me with her ability to create exactly what I want and so quickly! She is so talented and sweet. She created my signature for me...what do you think?

New and Improved

If you check out my website these days you'll see that I've been a little slow in getting it updated and put together. My friend Sunee at Nee Designs had a great idea to add my Etsy info to my blog as well as some photos of finished items from Flickr. Gotta love having people around you who know the latest and greatest in technology. My good friend Chris got me started and between he and Sunee, I think I'm almost there! Thanks friends!

Now...I just need to get Sunee's purse finished :)
