Getting Ready for the Holiday Shows

I pulled out some of my Patache products to see what else I need to make. The Treasure Dive (the artists' collective that I am a member of) is meeting with another artist tomorrow who is hosting a Christmas show in November. This artist wants to see what each member of the Treasure Dive collective makes, and if she likes what she sees she will host us as guest artists at her show. Yippee! All of the fun and sales, with none of the planning. Here a small sampling of the product:

I have woven items too. I will post more tomorrow.

Back from Boise

Elsie and I spent a lovely week in Boise, ID with my sister and her family. We flew this time which was very exciting. One the return, our flight was cancelled and we were rerouted through Seattle. Which made Elsie extremely excited. When we got off the plane in Seattle she kept saying over and over "Oh my gosh! We are in Seattle!!". Leave it to a 3-year old to make a travel detour into an event.
I am currently trying to get the house back in order and start on a bit of fall pruning in the garden. We took a walk this morning and fall is definitely in the air. Some of the trees are even beginning to turn....hmmm... time to start thinking about Christmas!

Goodies to share

I feel like I have been neglecting my blog. So I will be making a better effort at regular posts. Especially now since fall is here.
I discovered a fabulous store within walking distance of my house called Knittn' Kitten. They sell nothing but vintage fabrics, patterns, books, and other sewing supplies from the past. It is an incredible treasure trove! Here are two craft books I found. One has knitting patterns and the other has crochet doll dresses.
