I got a lot of craft fair prep done this week so far. I picked up these tags and rubber stamp on my craft store run Monday. I thought it added a nice touch. I finished up some hoop art with backing and ribbon hangers. I traced and transferred a half-dozen patterns for more hand embroidered dish towels. My grandma used to always give us hand embroidered dish towels at Christmas when we were older. I just wouldn't feel like Christmas to me without them.
Today is gnome day. I'm sitting in my warm kitchen with a cup of tea watching the snow flurries outside. It just seems right to dress some pegs up in cozy wool.
Stay warm inside and out.

It's here - Craft Fair Week! I've been working on embroidery hoop art and felt ornaments all week. I have laid out plans for the week. I need to finish hoops with backing and ribbon. I have to crank out some peg gnomes and Santas. I need to pick up some things from the office supply store including a couple of half aprons. I'd love to embroider my sister's and my name on them. We'll see how the week goes.
It's not just craftiness for me this week. I have a tea date with a good friend today. I'll also be working as Stage Manager for A Charlie Brown Christmas. It will be a great experience. It's going to be a good week.

We've moved into Autumn and I am already working hard on holiday crafts. I have a craft fair coming up in a couple weeks and need to focus my time and energy on moving forward. Starting this week at Inspired, all my summery, hand-embroidered t-shirts will be only $6. The sale is this week only and I hope to find them all new homes before I bring in holiday stock to consign.

I finished Rachel's birthday present. Her name is Poppy and Rachel loves her very much. It was so fun making her and I have grand plans to learn to sew some doll clothes.
I'm already making a new doll. What do you think she'll turn out like?
