"Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons."
--Ruth Ann Schabacker
It's craft fair season and I am busy in the studio. The DIY Trunk Show broke all expectations! Thank you to all who stopped by my booth to say hello. Your smiles were a great gift. And to all who made a purchase, thank you again. I woke up last week to find a giant puddle of water in the basement. The leak was more than a leak. Evidently everytime I turned on the bathroom sink, a huge waterfall came cascading down my basement wall. What normally would have caused a major panic was offsett by such great sales and knowing I could easily pay the plumber. So a mighty THANK YOU!
You can next find my work at the Out of the Box Holiday Gift Market (see image above). I will be there 12/10, 12/11, 12/17 & 12/18 selling my beanies, berets, and bags as well as new charming paper ornaments made with vintage papers and colorful felted hats pins.
In the meantime, I am busy knitting more of the red "thread." I picked up another 68 donated hats, so I guess that means another 68 yds of i-cord to knit over the holiday weekend. Yeah!
My daughter and I have a tradition. We make pumpkin pancakes followed by either pumpkin pizza or homemade pumkin ravioli (in a sage and brown butter sauce) followed by pumpkin pie. Yes, being a vegetarian, it's a pumpkin theme around here rather than the focus on a turkey. When completely full and barely able to move, we head out to the movies to watch the latest chick flick. Unfortunately there aren't any chick flicks on offer, so I think it will be the latest Muppet movie. While I will miss family in St. Louis, I am thankful for the down time we have together, giving us a chance to recharge the energy levels before holiday season swings into high gear.
Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!
