Big Changes At The Wee Cottage






November is a month of changes...
leaves give way to bareness, rain to snow and Thanksgiving to the  Christmas season.
 It also heralds in my cozy season. There is nothing like  bonafide jammie day! 
Candle glow, a pile of movies and gentle works as snows and wind dance outside....





This month will bring bigger changes for me.
 I will enjoy my jammie days and my hibernating, but I will also enjoy something a little more special to make my heart sing in the days ahead.
 A wee package that will be fussy at times and need feeding and changing frequently! Let the Nonnie duties begin!





On October 3rd, Tim officially became a Grandpa.
 Daughter Kelly and Son in law, Kenny became very proud, first time parents. 
Kelly and Kenny are as dear as my own... 
we started blending our two families nearly 10 years ago.





The changes continue. 
The past couple of months have taken the wind from our sails
but
also given us Blessings. 
That is the way of it, no?

This journey with my art has been a wonderful blessing in itself, 
but after months of much thought,
I have decided to make changes for the new year.

I will be looking after the wee one as Mommy returns to work. That will force me to take on the direction that I have wanted to do for a few years now....


I will be designing more and making less finished dolls online~

You will still find an offering on  Early Work.

You will still see peeks of my work...
but you wont see as many dolls~

Until they are released as patterns.

It has been so difficult to do both; 
it's time to devote to the patterns.

The patterns will also be expanding in other ways, to include other stitching arts.

and my drawings will grow in number and continue to become fun paperworks!

I am excited to start this path.
To see where it leads~
I have been practicing new techniques
 and 
reacquainting myself with olde.

all goode things grow with love
~*~

Thank you all so much~ I am very excited and I know it will all fall into place as it should.

Rhonda, the sheep pattern is one of my beloved Netty LaCroix patterns. After many years, I can make some for me.

Lori, you are always an inspiration and I am blessed to call you friend. You have always encouraged me and so many others to give back to the world around us, all that we love. Blessed Be to you my friend for all that you do for everyone!

Oh Peggy, I am very sure that you do the designs wonderfully! These friends always reflect out love and our hearts and that is what makes each one unique.
