Note from shop owner •★• CURRENTLY ON BREAK •★•
Hello my fabulous customers! I am currently taking time off for surgery and recovery and will be away from my computer completely from August 18-30, but will check my messages as often as possible as soon as possible. If you are a customer, please know I will contact you as soon as I can. My shop will open with very limited stock when I return and extremely limited quantities for the fall/winter season. Thank you all for your continued support of handmade!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~~*~*~*~*~*~*~~*~*~*~*~*~*~

On a sidenote, I've never addressed this from my shop before and never planned on doing so, but due to the confusion to many, I thought I'd make a statement. I AM the original designer of this scarf. The photos of this scarf were taken by me in my home with my personal camera. I have not given ANY shops permission to use my photos, my story, my verbiage, the use of "Boston Harbor Scarf."

It's hard to believe that a craft I started in order to help me reduce stress during the horrid economy years ago turned into such a huge deal. Ha! I'm thankful for the amazing (and surprising) support, but after working countless hours a day, 7 days a week for months and months, and now years, I'm going to have limited quantities. I will contact you as soon as possible. Current customers will receive responses as soon as possible!

★PATTERNS★ ----> As indicated on each of my listings, I am *not* selling patterns at this time. Due to the high volume of messages I am receiving in general from customers as well as those asking for the pattern, I will ••not be returning messages•• asking if I sell patterns or asking for information about my patterns. I strive to offer excellent customer service therefore I need the time to return customers' messages in a timely manor. Thank you so much for your understanding!

Thank you for your support of handmade in the USA!

It's beautiful! The handwritten card was lovely, it also came with instructions on how to wear the scarf. I thought the instructions were best followed when viewing the picture of the scarf. I can't wait for autumn and cool weather!!

About

Behind My Picket Fence....

Hello. I'm Melody. All of this started because I was stressed out. Just like everyone else, we were hit in this blasted economy. I needed something to help ground me. Calm me. I picked up the crochet hook that hadn't been touched since I was a teenager and began to make some scarves...

Come join me Behind My Picket Fence...

Crocheting is therapeutic so I do a lot of it. ;) There's something about taking a skein of yarn and turning it into a beautiful scarf or throw. Truth be told, I get a little giddy when I list a new piece and it sells for the first time. It's almost like seeing your child take her first steps... excitement and pride rolled into one.

You'll find beautiful vintage pieces in my shop from time to time. Many are pieces that I've fallen in love with....and some never make it to my shop because I just *have* to keep them for myself. My vintage cheese boxes are very popular and I'm getting ready to list more.

I'm beyond thrilled that my throws, scarves, headbands and vintage pieces have found homes all over the world! Many of my throws are in hotel rooms, some have been placed in their new homes by interior designers and shops around the USA! My throws have also been quite popular in the UK and scarves are keeping many Australians nice and cozy warm in the winter. Canada has been so kind to me as well!

My sweet little family and I moved to the Pacific Northwest from a big city in search of a more simple, calm and peaceful life. It has been an amazing journey and I'm still getting use to the quietness. It's funny how challenging it can be to get used to a more peaceful life. Crocheting is definitely a calming addition to my life...and my customers are a constant inspiration. I adore hearing the stories of where my scarves and throws are going...

Oh and I have a precious six year old daughter who keeps me {and my husband of 18 years} quite busy. She wants desperately to start her own 'online shop' so look for an announcement from me soon. She's busy making things to sell...and working on a name for her store. How cute is that?!?!

Thank you so much for your support of my shop! It means the world to me ...
