What I have been up to this summer....

Mostly, cleaning!!! But once that was completed and my house guests left, it was time to jump back into the creative mode and get things made for my fall shows that start in 9 weeks!! YIKES!

Doggie Ornaments
Kitty Cats and Kitten Ornaments









So this week, after inventorying everything, I started phase one of the process....the knitting part! Spent most of the week knitting doggies and kitties....and even designed a new Wacky Kitty pin (to complement my Doggie pins from this past spring) 



Pictures of the new items will be posted once they are completed....

Summer 2017 update....

Now that my Spring show schedule is complete, I am gearing up for my fall and Holiday shows this summer....But first, I decided to complete my 'big room switch' at my house that I started in 2016...I shuffled 4 rooms in my house (2 bedrooms, my office and my yarn/craft room). Of course, the yarn/craft room is the last one to be sorted and organized and that's my next task before I can start knitting again! My goal is to be knitting again next week!! Lots of Halloween items are on the list this year too since I have a few shows before the end of October....

I will post my Fall/Holiday show schedule as I get confirmations (which should be soon for many of them). Confirmed so far are:

Fiber Show at Sauder Village in Ohio
Holiday Boutique, Indianapolis
Center Grove Craft Fair, Greenwood, IN
Mack's Merry Market, Terre Haute, IN



I will post details and links here and on my FB page as the events are listed...
