Readjusting My Sails

Thanks for catching my snafu!
here is the corrected version!

No matter how hard we try;
our days can get rearranged for us.
I have no complaints~
Don't get me wrong.
I have been
VERY
blessed,
more than I ever could have imagined.
However, 
in these blessings,
I came to realize
 that I had to reschedule
 my 
Picturetrail show.

Wednesday...

Sunday Evening
will mark the end 
of this year's
 Hallows Eve offerings
with the exception of
EHAG Emporium.

Wicked Goodes 
will host 
olde friends and new;
a collection of smalls
that 
make a heart smile...
as they give a wink and nod to the past.

Ruth's Shoe
After,
I will be turning to
 the Thankful Season...
All that comes with 
Harvest Blessings,
snowy days
and 
Himself,the Elf~

Oh how I love this time of year!

So Much To Do......


It may seem
 that all you have heard
 from me 
is 
the sound of crickets lately...

I have been 
crazy
busy.

Squishing everything in...
a pattern sale, 
a online show soon~
and 
my Early Work Mercantile offering.
I cram a lot of day into my work,
or 
perhaps I cram a lot of work into my day.



I will get to recharge soon
and travel up to the mountains.
I can't wait to see that wee cabin in the woods.

but first...
I need to get patterns 
to the many customers 
that blew me away with the orders.

finish some Fall lovelies
for a Picture Trail show..

and introduce 
you to Gracie~ 
My Harvest Angel...

She is on Early Work Mercantile this evening.
Oh yes...
those wings~
those lovely wings, 
are a start for me.
because 
it's 
time
 to
grow.

September Goodies


Mrs. Munson (left) & Harriet Lurvey
fun little shelf leaners or tucks.
they have their eye on you!
Our few days of cool, September weather
have drifted away. 
Even yesterday's storms and rain, 
did not make a dent in the heat and humidity.
Summer; it seems,
does not want to let hold of her grasp.

Peanuts!
He is inspired by our back yard hooligan's and named after a beloved.
Sometimes, they just capture the spirit of someone I love. 

My head has been in Fall
since January.
 when I decided that it was time...
to step back in to the memories of my beginnings.
Memories of magical days, 
drawing and dreaming 
in an old 1812 House
and a wonderful friend.
I don't see enough of her,
now that I have moved.



Miss Brimfield.
When she first appeared,
 she was an instant hit with her touch of realism
 and Deer mouse markings.
She takes some fussing with,
but oh so worth it!
It was at that time,
 that we spoke of our love of Halloween.
Of old cemeteries...
and skeletons.
along with the time period of those early gravestones.


Folky Gloves
Fun and unusual...
perhaps they will spark your imagination in other ways!
Always the first to go at shows.
So you have seen,
the wink and the nod.
Squeezed in between 
the whimsy .
It just seems to come out, 
no matter how hard that I try to 
put myself back.


Edna Nettle's Shoe
A fun pocket hanger.
let your imagination run wild
with the possibilities of what to tuck in her show.
At Thanksgiving,
 it is also the perfect Pilgrim's shoe.

It's all goode, though...
The whimsy makes for goode patterns.
and so...
a couple months ago, 
I started work on a pattern release.

The Kiss
He is a fun fellow and much belated
 as many of you have asked for his pattern. I love him propped on a shelf.
perfect for a Princess' bookshelf!

 It takes awhile as I balance it all..
but when it finally comes together~ 
What fun!!!

However,
no goode pattern release,
should be had without a sale.
You can hop over to my Etsy Shop by clicking on on any picture.
once there,
remember to use coupon code
FALL16
when you check out.
just like magic
you will receive 20% off.
(Goode until Sunday, September 11 at midnight EST)

Harvey WallBanger
last...but not in anyway least!
He has given us big chuckles here!
