It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Merry Christmas!

I am in disbelief that it has not been since August that I have posted. So sorry. I have been engulfed in some things with my girls that has just overwhelmed us.  Trauma drives me to creativity so I have been productive in making new things.  I have some great new sewing patterns in the shop now.  You can get a pattern to sew a case for almost any of the ereaders on the market.  If you are not sure which one, just send me a conversation through the shop.  I have had to turn off the comments here as I was getting some filthy comment posts that I don't want any of my readers to stumble on.  Back to the shop...I have fallen in love with embroidering felt, and I am excited about the new recycled felt. It comes from recycled plastic bottles! I thought it may be rough to the touch, but it is not, it is actually very soft, yet durable. The colors are great too. So, there are many hand embroidered felt items and they are currently on SALE! Buy 1 Felt item get the second Felt item, of the same value or less, for half price.  (This does not include the felt pillows or the wall art).  There are some great buys on felt stockings and ornaments! I am trying to reduce my inventory so many items are at clearance prices.

Here is an easy neck warmer/cowl sewing pattern. It uses very little fabric and can be whip ped up in no time(ok, maybe more like an hour) These are large enough to fit over almost any head.  You can choose from the super simple one piece cowl that any beginning sewer could handle, to the Reversible Multi-layer Cowl, fit for any sewer.  This is a great project to reuse some favorite piece of clothing that has been outgrown.  The model fell in love with both of these and has been wearing them both since the photo shoot! Make something warm and cozy for yourself, and when you see how easy these are to make, you can whip up some more for family and friends!

Are you a Narnia fan?  The new DAWN TREADER movie is about to come out on Dec. 10 and I can hardly wait! My youngest daughter and I have been reading it together as an English assignment.  It is a wonderful book written by C.S. Lewis. It is part of the Chronicles of Narnia series.  I have embroidered a part of the Dawn Treader, a ship, that is the head of a colorful dragon.  I hope to add more to this series of wall art.
