It's Hannah writing to you today. As some of you may know, I'm moving to Arcata (up on the coast in Humboldt County) to go to school. I'm moving in 11 days and I'm so excited! So, in my college-student financial panic, I opened an Etsy store! I have been an absolute sewing maniac for the past few days. I am so thrilled to finally be selling my own things. Here are just a few of the items I have posted so far.
Perfectly Practical Wallet designed by me
Friday Social Cafe Apron
Midwest Wrist Cuff
In other news, our lovely garden at home has been producing away! Emma and I are excited to see corn, tomatoes, zucchini, and LOTS of summer squash...
There's 5 in this picture, but I picked 6 more within the next two days. It's too bad you can't make summer squash bread...
As I type, my students in Home Ec are working on making these aprons from Lotta Jansdotter's book. Here is the one I finished yesterday, I'll post pictures of their finished projects soon.
Speaking of Home Ec, I wanted to share some of my students projects from previous classes this month.
These are Amy's pillowcases from the first class. They matched her bedroom perfectly! The Alexander Henry fabric she used looks lovely.
And this is Brooke's tote bag from last weeks class. Again, the Alexander Henry fabric was a good choice.
The schedule is up for classes into September so if you're interested in signing up for Home Ec (in August we'll be making gardening gloves and a gardening tote. In September we'll be making very traditional projects that include yo-yo's, log cabin coasters, embroidered towels and an apron) give us a call or drop in and we'd love to sign you up!
Anyway, wish me luck in Arcata! I'm going to miss the Thimble and all my relatives here, haha. I'll be back often to visit!
