A New Year, a New Beginning

2013 a Year of New Beginnings.  2012 with all of it's changes, the losses, the the past.  It was very hard to deal with all the other challenges, but going through the holidays without my mother was the most difficult.  She really "made" Christmas in our family.  I miss my best friend, my Mom. 

My family has been busily preparing our home for the market.  Extensive renovations to update, painting over murals, walls that held many posters...all that you hope someone else will do for you when you are buying a new home.  It is truly more beautiful than it has ever been.  We love our home, but it is in the wrong state for our next adventure.

The employment front remains unyieldingly altered and we wonder about the future, like many other hundreds of thousands of Americans.  

Creating new products and sewing patterns is climbing back into my schedule, thankfully. I have added some new sewing patterns/sizes for newer iPads and eReader devices.

The Hobbit Door Tote Bag or Pillow that my daughter helped me design:  It is perfect for carrying so many things, securely, and it is fun!  We are big J.R.R. Tolkien fans and have enjoyed seeing The Hobbit: An Unexpected Adventure in every way that it was produced.  I really liked the 40 frames per second version!  The is reminiscent of the Hobbit door in the story, complete with Gandalf's markings on the door.  
“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.” 

It is large enough for laptops, or many books from the library, school stuff, and lined with a green leafy pattern that is reminiscent of the Shire.  I had a customer who wanted the design on a pillow for her very special Tolkien-inspired living room, so that is now added to the shop.  

It is my hope that all of you have a fantastic 2013, perhaps filled with unexpected adventures, for those who like that sort of thing. 

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
