A Merry Wild Hare Wednesday

Hello and Happy Dec. 17th to you!

To purchase please send an email to:

#1 ~ Skirl
(What granddaughter Sophia calls a squirrel)
A wee fellow of about 6.5" from heel to tail top.
He wears a sweet hand knitted jumper and scarf. 
A wee antique feather tree will accompany him!

#2 ~ This Little Gift
A very sweet antique sewing basket is filled with a mohair, 
tu tu dressed bunny, woolen pin keep and antique bits.
The antique Christmas card reads:
"This little gift I made for you;
And in between the stitches
I wished and wished - and wished and wished -
You happiness and riches"
The perfect sentiment for a sewing basket yes?
7" x 7"  of sweetness overall

#3 ~ Puddin'
About 7.5" overall. A sweet mohair bunny sits atop a red velvet
pin keep.  (Reminds me of a plum pudding' ). 
Trimmed in vintage chenille and antique holly leaves front and back!
Bunny holds a wee antique ornament and wears a silk ribbon.

Be Merry!

Thank you . . .

Dear friends,
As I try to put into words how much your support of my work means to
me I feel I always come up short.
Your sweet comments on my blog and your dear words during online events
and at shows humble me.
It is because of you  . . . that once again, I will begin
another year doing what I love so much.
You are all special gifts to me . . . 
Thank you!

Happy . . .

What a lovely weekend!
The From Our Hands and Hearts show was a grand success!
Rebekah and I are overwhelmed to say the least.
Each artisan and dealer put together a beautiful display, these talented
folks are the ones who made the show awesome!
We'd like to offer a very sincere thank you to everyone involved, from the artisans
and antique dealers to our husbands and families and of course to you,
 our dear customers without whom none of this would be possible!

Enjoy a little re-cap of the show.

A bear-makers dozen . . .

It's been a whirlwind in the studio. 
Furry bits and stuffing are flying  everywhere.
Preparing for the "FROM OUR HANDS & HEARTS" show means stitching 
non-stop and working on multiple pieces at one time.  
A bit of an assembly line if you will.
These friends are not complete just yet . . .   hand shading and many details
will be added before they are ready for their big day.
Enjoy the pic and have a lovely weekend!

I blinked . . .

And it's November!

"The month of November makes me feel that life is passing 
more quickly.
In an effort to slow it down, I try to fill the hours 
more meaningfully"
Henry Rollins
I try . . . I do . . . I really try to "slow it down", but the days come so very fast.
For me this time of year is filled with shows and orders and stitches to be made, but we do our best to make our days fun and meaningful.
This past week that meant a visit from the grand baby and her mommy for Halloween.
We are exhausted, yet we have those sweet & silly smiles that only a grandchild can bring.
After a rest of the VERY shortest proportions . . .  it's into the crunch of the 
Our final plans are in place and the next 2 weeks will be spent, scurrying around gathering props for display, deciding what to wear, (running in circles) & adding 
finishing touches to some sweet furry friends.

I do hope you can join us!
