I will be at the Gloversville Middle School.

The Hadassah Show is now 
The Soroptimist Craft Fair

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

The Gift of Handmade


Saturday is coming rather quickly.

We will be in Wilton NY for the

19th Holiday Craft Fair

at

Ballard Elementary School
300 Ballard Rd.
Exit 16 off of I87
9-3:30

We love this show, It is fun to do and everyone is so pleasant. 
It's a halfway point to Granville for me,
 and so many friends stop by and say hello~
The Goode Wife will be in the Main Hallway this year,
just past the entrance.

A perfect opportunity to pick up Handmade gifts...
something unique or special...
be inspired.


I have been making a few things from some of my favorite designers...
sometimes taking them for a spin,
 like the little Angel Kitty.

Their designs fit and allow me to work on the techniques that first drew me to Primitives.
you can see and feel the love this way.

I have been missing that.
the weight of rags...
the feel of grass~ like olde horsehair...
for me,
 it is like old memories being awakened.
