Oh my, it's that time of year for me....
I am sewing and dyeing and photographing. Getting ready for a BIG shop update next week and a wonderful Art Faire in Cape Cod next weekend. It's my only holiday show this winter. Last year, while wonderful, was too full with a fair in December at my busiest season. It's a learning curve. Balancing family, our traditions, and small business affairs.
I've been stalking (daily) the tracking numbers on the notecards I ordered. They should be here tomorrow. I know a few of you saw them on facebook and helped me narrow down my selection. (Thank you!) I chose eight prints. Seven from the album I shared and one that is a surprise. I can't wait to show them to you!
Also in the studio..... doll quilts for the holidays. I made star quilts this year. I really, really love the way they came out. The star is quilted, all natural fibers, all Anna Maria Horner fabric, and no binding for a modern twist. I made several with the reds & pinks and I'm making more with the blues you see on the left. I need help deciding on a background color.... cream or soft blue/grey? What do you think?
In other news... we've been painting. My homeschool/dining room currently is uhm, well... a mess.
New lighting. Fresh color. We just finished the kitchen too! Once it all comes together I'll share more photos.
Oh yes, and there is a show at three. The things these kids do when the mama is sewing away....
