A New Year

Happy 2017!

Today I take flight on a new year. It will be one of anticipated change! Change is not easy but I am looking forward to the new year. First, I begin my last semester of teaching at the university and start preparations for the next chapter on my life’s journey. I need to start cleaning house and downsizing!!!! So I decided that I needed to create a new website that I could personally manage. I hope all goes well with that. I am not very technically literate…LOL  What to call the website? My original business name was Anita’s Homespun Treasures. Many people found that a mouthful and over the years people and companies dropped the Treasures…For awhile I thought my name should be ALHDesigns…I have always liked the way that sounds. However did that really fit with my identity? Oh what to do? Why should this be such a difficulty thing? Most people know what they want to be called. So after much debate I have decided to put it back to what people knew me as; Anita’s Homespun but I am dropping the treasures.


I will be working on more felting this summer and adding in some classes.



Lots and lots and lots of dyeing! I have so much fiber that needs my attention.

Fashion, Fashion and oh did I say fashion!


I am so looking forward to creating more fashionable pieces. This is a top I made this past year at a workshop. There is also weaving to be done and let’s not forget about sewing. In high school I made most of my clothes. It will be fun to work with the sewing machine again….Project Anita here I come 🙂

Ok, so off I go now…taking down the tree and need to get ready for the Penn State game later.

Happy Creating, Anita
