good morning monday y’all!

… and hello to the polar vortex!  i’d say that for me, it should be great motivation to get hunkered down into the studio, make soup and bread, and stay close to the fire.  and maybe even a little bit of christmas too!  snow always helps me to do that, and i have some new ideas in mind.  

we had such a WONDERFUL time teaching in missoula this past weekend!  i loved it.  great class, super owner and yes… i have a few new things i’ve purchased, including a pattern i’m excited about, as well as a new embroidery design stick!  {whaaattt?}  yes — excited to try embroidery again now that i am retired.  so i will show those and some new thread treasures, too.

so ~ earlier, wayyyyy back in october {lol} i prepped for a christmas show here in town, and i made 43 assorted tea towels!  it was fun to use my accuquilt “go” cutter, and few simple heart shapes, and of course other embellishments of lace, buttons, labels and stitching.  i’m making christmas coasters, and will show them soon.  these projects are terrific and very simple projects that are sure to be nice gifts to give:

this particular show is a fund raiser for the art center at paris gibson museum of art, so 30% is taken.  it’s difficult to make a profit, but the donation is also something i think is worth it, too.  so… i hope many of them sold, but if not… then they will hit the etsy store, or be lovely gifts!

stay warm in the polar vortex; it’s a big one, and it’s a serious thing.  {coming to a sky near you!}

blessings on your day ~

  1. Did you snow? We have just light snow, but sure is cold. 21 at noon. Good thing we got the yard and garden put to bed this weekend. Sew away – that will keep you warm.
