Just A little News


Hi everyone! 
Thanks so much for stopping by. 
I wanted to let all of my local friends know that I will not be at the 
Harvest Festival 
at 
Sharon Springs
this year.

It was a difficult decision, but it is just too difficult to make enough items,
I will check out the show as a visitor instead~


I will miss you all, but I WILL be back next year!

I may be able to squeeze a few things in for a small Picture Trail show~ Stay tuned for details!

Also~

I will be doing the Gloversville Show in Nov.

September Inspires


How is it that the days can pass so quickly?
The Wee Cottage is so full of life and laughter.

Tommy keeps us busy during the week days.
Yes, us~ Tim is between jobs, so he has been busy with the garden...
and keeping us in goode eats.
Tommy is starting to get around, 
so it is nice to have Grampa home for now to do the cooking, 
and tend the harvest...
and sneak in some 
Tommy time!




Early Work Mercantile opened
at midnight.
You never know when you put something up, just how it would be received.
you can put your heart up for all to see,
 and it can be a dud. 
I like to challenge myself with my sculpts and needle techniques....

what a surprise this morning!
I have been working through all my notes and messages.
 I appreciate all of them 
and am thankful to have 
so many that wish to adopt!


This month I was intrigued by a woman from Oregon and her family
by the last name of Dunn.
I enjoyed looking up the women of the Oregon Trail
and the men who lead the way~
protecting,
leading 
and scouting
The women left comforts
and finery.
trading silk for linen.

It was only fitting
to name her after someone that inspired me so much.


I also have been using nap time to my needling advantage...
see the red garland in the picture above?
It is corn from our garden.
Isn't it beautiful?

So while it has been too long since my last post,
I have been keeping full days 
and enjoying life here at the cottage.
