And the stockings were hung by the chimney with care.

These vintage 1930's socks were brought to us a while ago and we were all SO excited to finally be able to put loops on them and add them to our Christmas items in the shop!! Wouldn't they look fantastic hanging on a hearth?

In other news, the craft fair has been a lot of fun. If you have time tomorrow to stop by the sheds I highly recommend it - it's a WONDERFUL group of vendors with SO many lovely things available for Christmas gifts.

Also, just a reminder that our Home Ec/Home for the Holidays series starts this coming Wednesday from 6:00-9:00 and we'll be starting with a cheery pennant garland perfect for holiday decorating!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Dear friends of mine had twin baby girls the night before - SO much to be thankful for!

I'm not sure I can let mom sell this one.......

I was already romancing this fabric. I even made a blouse out of it with the GREAT 1930's pattern for Christmas last year and THEN she goes and makes this ADORABLE apron! With red dingle-balls even!!!! I think it needs to come home with me tonight and I need to wear it at my Holiday Party tomorrow night. What do you think??

Felted Beads and Bracelets!

We had a fantastic group of home school students and their mothers come make felted beads and bracelets with us! We all had so much fun and they all made beautiful bracelets!

It was a good day!

What I did today.

Mom and Linda convinced me to leave my desk work today and join the sock animal class. I thoroughly enjoyed it! This is the monkey that I made for my nephew, Connor, for Christmas. He's a Curious George fan so I'm hoping they can be buds. We had so much fun with the class that we made sure to schedule one more session before Christmas. So the next date is Saturday, December 12th from 1:00-5:30 and you have time to finish one animal in class. You have the option between a monkey, cat or dog and Linda is working on an elephant that may be ready in time for class. Hope to see you there!

Wooo! What-a-Month!

I'm back! So sorry I disappeared there. October was overwhelming - I don't know what we were thinking! The Fiber Retreat was a great success! The move went as smoothly as it could have! and our Grand Opening was wonderful! Here some photo recap:

The Downieville Workshop. All the girls were busy little bees!

Linda Waddle taught us how to dye at the retreat this time around! It was SO much fun!

Our Shiny New Classroom Tables!!!! Aren't they pretty?

And our shiny new cutting table!
