First of all I can’t believe I did not post, not once, in the month of October! It’s no wonder though, because if you take another look at the title of this post, I’ve been designing, sewing, photographing, writing, and polishing 5 new patterns. On top of my business tasks just listed I’m also a mom with three school kids at home, our oldest attending college as a freshman. So, laundry, food shopping, cooking, cleaning and errand running, etc. I pretty much am never doing nothing. Still, I’m a bit surprised at myself for not noticing this big lull in my blogging. I certainly hope to not repeat said bad blog etiquette.
Without further ado, here is the first of 5 new patterns,
I first started making these cute little things when I was having holiday open houses. I crafted and sewed seasonal and holiday decorations for months and then sent out invitations to all I knew who loved my “stuff”. I would
practially kill myself empty the first floor of my house of all it’s decoration and fill it with the holiday crafts I’d been making. Lighted pinecone baskets, applique towels, sweatshirt jackets, wreaths, framed and quilted items such as these, homemade chocolates and much more. Then for one day, from 7 a.m. ’til 3 p.m. I would open my home to shoppers. What work that was, but I loved every aspect of it. The idea hunting, the shopping and then the creating. Once I started vending at market, which falls the last weekend of October, I really didn’t have enough time to do all the work in time to sell before Christmas. So, now this little idea of mine from several years ago blossomed into a pattern to send to market this year!
