Getting back to work!

Hello again,
So, I need to just accept that I'm just not a frequent blog-poster. The news here is that I had the flu. It's gone now but it certainly knocked me off my feet for a while - literally. I'd been saying that I wanted time to just do nothing.. Well, I got that! And quickly decided that 'nothing' is really boring. Who knew day-time television was so terrible?

Also, I got into the Handmade Holiday show! Whoohoo! I'm quite proud of that. But now I'm quite scared too! I just need to plug along on making inventory. It's not until mid December. I'm sure I'll have enough done. I'm not planning on having a truckload of stuff or anything. We'll just see what happens! But, while I'm thinking of it, if anyone wants to comment about their favorite color combos (especially in the kitchen/dining area of life) feel free to let me know! I'm so afraid of making things in the totally wrong color schemes! I'm not trendy enough to know what's cool.

On another note, I recently went to a farm very close to where I live called Lavender Fields Farm. Such a sweet place. I bought a big ziploc of dried lavender to put in little sachets made from bitty scraps.. Ya know, for your closet or 'unmentionables' drawer? ; )

And to end the post, I'll put up a picture of what's recently been on my work table - lots of oven mitt tops! Now I just have to turn them into real oven mitts... Someday..

sorry to hear you've been ill. but getting a place at a show sounds great! i don't really know what's cool either but i feel like i've seen stuff in terracotta/earthy colors lately. i like our blue and purple dawn stitches highlights though!

Hey there! I got in the Handmade Holiday show too and I am really excited! I was visiting people's blogs and love that we have almost the same shop names, but with our own specified products :) Haha. Is this your first Handmade Holiday show? This is my first, and I am nervous about inventory too! I am doing a little holiday-oriented stuff, and then a mixture of blues, greens, browns, etc. I think, do what makes you happy, and others will love it! Feel free to contact me if you want to talk about the show more - I'd love to have someone to chat with about it!
