Mini Stockings

Since we have been completely remiss in showing you all of the new goodies that we introduced at Market, I thought I'd start with the ones that you might want to be making soon…or like right now! Introducing the MINI STOCKINGS pattern! For us a lot of the time, we want something simple and fun in between the more involved and time consuming projects as it gives us something completely different to work on and it gives us almost instantaneous results. Sometimes I am all about the instant gratification LOL! This was our favorite solution to that problem! These little guys are so much fun to make whether you choose to spend a bit more time and make them scrappy or go for the quick project and make them all out of one fabric. Fun to make together with friends, with your kids or just on…

Love Fall.

Working on some author review for my upcoming book today and couldn't resist sharing the view from my dining room table where I am currently working. It might also be that I am procrastinating just a tiny bit. If this is my editor reading…. I am definitely not procrastinating. Just gathering inspiration :-).   Geez, I  love fall…

Happy Valentine’s Day

I forgot a few important things in this morning's bleary eyed post….. ummm, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!       MODA BLOG HOP CONTINUES…. And don't forget to visit the new fun MODA BLOG HOP days. Today is Sandy Gervais. She is one of my all time favorites. Her husband Bruce, and my hub and I, somehow always manage to make each other laugh at market and in the after hours… especially when we are too tired to think straight! Sandy has been drawing mini paintings each day of the HOP… with her toes apparently! You might want to go see.   Have a great day full of, what else, LOVE! Talk to you soon…

Its Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas…

As you may have noticed, we have been a bit on the quiet side around these here parts. We have been doing a series of specials and sales through our newsletter these past few weeks and that has kept us just a bit busier than expected [btw, you really ought to sign up if you haven't already].  But also, we have been purposefully trying to slow down this holiday season and to not do as much so that we might enjoy the meaning and the wonder of this time of year.  I have found that its much easier to say that than to do it, by the way! But we're working on it! So I am happy to share that our home is now finally more or less decorated with some of my favorite little decorations. Plans are made and gifts are being wrapped…
