The Busy Season

The wee Cottage on Curry Road, looks calm and serene from the outside, but since July, it has been a flurry of activity inside. The economy has been slow, but there is a big demand for handmade in America and patterns.... oh the patterns! Add to this regular family needs and a big show in November...and you have madness~ goode madness. I just can't seem to ever be caught up with pattern orders, but you will find no complaints here. I am also trying to get some drawings in to make some very special ornies for the show. They will be a part of the 2012 paper line at Monahan Papers ~ and I hope just the beginnings of fun paper dolls and kits just as a start. Oh the possibilities! This gal is Meg, inspired by my love of Louisa May Alcott and Little Women. She will make her formal and finished appearance on November.

Stacey, that's my absolutely mostest favoritest book in the whole world: Little Women! Sorry for the super-superlatives! But I had an edition with lovely illustrations when I was a young girl and I spent hours and hours just tracing them. I can still see the indentations from my pencil's pressure.

I am painting the "naked" bumble bee today! It's all black....stripes to appear tomorrow when the black dries!
It's wonderfully dorky and special!

Hugs, Diane

Hello Miz Stacey! I just finished Miz Buzz! She's posted on my blog. I hope you'll go take a peek. Also...I didn't know, until I pulled out my Somerset Prims magazine, that you had been featured! I didn't even see your name at first, but when I saw the pumpkin doll, I knew immediately it was yours! And sure enough, there was your name!

It was so much fun making the bee. If I make another one, I'll take your suggestion and make a BIG one!

Have a Happy Weekend.
Hugs, Diane

Never enough time when our work is something we love. Oh and when we're a one woman operation too! ;)
