Back to pincushion production with one more show to go!

2017popupartA BIG THANK YOU to everyone who stopped and shopped at my booth yesterday at the Laurelhurst Winter Bazaar. Great energy, crowds and more at this PTA-sponsored event. I almost sold out of all my items: pincushions, potholders and polar bears.

Laurelhurst2017 After a brief respite this morning, a jaunt across the Columbia with two of my gal pals to the Pendelton Outlet Store in Washougal, I’m back at work. And yes, I’m now the happy owner of a cozy, classic Pendelton blanket.

blanketPincushion production restarts NOW for this Saturday’s December Pop Up Shop. Check out what just arrived 5 minutes ago via US Mail from Renaissance Ribbons. Aren’t they fabulous? Looking forward to stitching them into new colorful pincushions.

newribbonsHope to see you Saturday! Additionally, I will have more information about my Stitching classes, which will begin in January.

thankful for everything that is here

We’re all back home after a busy Thanksgiving holiday in Portland. The trips down and back up the slab (I-5) were relatively painless. Our kitties (Henry is pictured above) were quite content during our absence as they were well-cared for by Miss Sophie. Wonderful food, family, friends and a little shopping at some favorite local stores filled our days in the Rose City.

Rain played a BIG role in this past week’s weather. Could barely see the garden and we thought that Lake Ballard was being created at the feet of our flamingos, Della and Perry.

Today’s drive home was quick and sun-filled. Seattle’s skyline looks mighty fine, even through the windshield.  The Solumination Holiday Sale is this coming weekend – December 1 & 2 and our Spark Studio Holiday Sale the following one. Would love to see you at either venue! Tomorrow I’ll be back to work AND thankful for everything!
