Julie...love the piggy hat too. You are soooooo good!!!

Sharon...your friend will enjoy that lovely card. Your work is is always exquisite.

I am still working on packing for my move back to Vancouver. I am down-sizing my stuff
again...even though I am going into a house that is twice as big as our apartment.
Most of my quantity of stuff is my crafting stuff, my knick-knacks and my cards and stationery.
I could open my own Antique Store! lol

Have a beautiful day Lovely Ladies!

blessings,
peggy

Cherime- I forgot to add that you are right. A lot of customers are just browsing to pick up ideas. I did that recently, but I bought 2 of the item that I went home and copied.

Sharon- I love paper craft. I'm no good at it myself. It's something I can definitely appreciate others' ability to do. I love all the details on your card.

Paula, Love the bag! Is it embroidered on wool?
Julie, You are onto something big! Love your hats.
Sharon, The card is exquisite. You and I were mail art partners once and your work is beautiful.

Hi Dianne, Yes it is embroidered on wool tweed. Hope to have some updated photos of a more finished product soon. Things have been so busy that I can't get back to my craft cave.
The baby burp cloth and toy are so cute! I can just imagine how much that baby is going to love the soft cuddly flannel and chenille.
Sharon..Love the card! I cannot do papercraft at all but yours is gorgeous.
PeggyAnn, careful on the downsizing! I tossed some things during our last move that I really, really wished I hadn't. Keep an open mind to the future when you consider getting rid of it and consider packing another box for the move.

Update on Lizzie Bags. My new tent set up worked wonders and I was busy. Also got called to work for an up scale designer shop to put Christmas in store. Lots of ladder climbing but the store is looking very good, owner is happy. I also sold my Lizzie bags to owner, plus the gift shop at the art museum and the gift shop at the Library! WoW! What a rush. I am now working 5 days a week in store, sewing Lizzie's at night and doing show on Saturday morning. (Deep breath) Lovn' Life.

OK, I'm ready-Let's go.

Great Susan. Looks really good by the way.

Today I am working on baby blankets for a bazaar in Nov. Trying a new method, cutting and sewing all the tops then will work on the backing and trim.

LOL THAT in one cute hat :)

I have been making myself a cowl, a cupcake hat (not one like yours Julie......but that is SO cute - I heart it )and wristwarmers (see my other post for pics)

Now I am knitting an angel, still have to crochet one sleeve for my cardi and the purple cardi is also almost finished. After that....on with cowls and other warm winter wear I think

Julie, I love the cupcake hat! I saw one in a magazine where the "icing" was white and it had "sprinkles" of multi-colored yarn. I will email you. Dianne in the Hudson Valley

These projects are so cute! I just finished my first "sushi roll scarf". I have 6 more to go for Christmas. DH thinks the scarf is cute, and the 7 DGDs will love them. Hope so. I've made it through the fish and cavier on the second roll and am working on the avocodo (?) section on the 2nd scarf.

This is a knitted cowl with cables. I found some lonely unique heirloom pieces to use as buttons. I used Caron yarn in Plum Wine.

Julie, I love that cowl. Very pretty, and just the right size. Can you share the pattern?

Finally, took pics of the sushi roll scarf. Forgot to take one of it unrolled (geometric look). Not sure..but I think this site was recommended by another farmgirl..I get lots of neat patterns by e-mail from them. AllFreeCrochet.com "Hooked On Crochet". They have a history of the pattern, and then the free pattern. Check it out.
