2008 Patterns Availabe

Hello and I hope you all have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend. Seems like the summer has flown away. I am very busy here getting ready for holiday shows. Naturaly my sewing machine took a dive on me and is in the repair shop for a week!! Gives me an excuse to work on patterns. I have 4 available now for fall. They are the snowman/ pumpkin man combo (great deal- 2 patterns in one), a witch and ghost shelf sitter doll and a ghost door doll. I have a new Santa door doll that will be offered in the AB4B group launch for September. Heres a pic of the patterns I have done now. Have a great weekend.

First Pattern On EBAY

I finally got my first pattern done and have listed it on EBAY. It has long been a goal of mine to put some of my creations in pattern form. I plan to promote them at my shows, shop space, EBAY and ETSY. Boy was it ever a lot of work. Right now I am just offering the paper version but hope to be able to offer epatterns in the future. I'll blog my patterns when the next ones are available! My kids are back in school so its craft city for the holiday season here!! Holiday pics coming soon.

Lil Birdie

Look at the sweet little birdie who decided to hang out my window on my yellow flowers yesterday morning. He sat there the longest while looking around while I was on the computer.

A day at the Illinios State fair

The Butter cow
Going on the rides
First time milking a cow
Ready, aim, fire!

My children and I went to the State fair last week and had a blast. They had never been and were quite impressed. They even got along ALL DAY!! To much to look at to argue. Thought I would share a few pics. Check out the famous butter cow and skunks. Its a tradition to see the butter cow. Weighs about 500 lbs.

Patterns comming soon

Being a pattern designer has been a goal of mine for quite a while. While I make most of my own designs, I have not had the time to sit and write them out. (much less figure out the technical aspect) I have been working on making a few patterns. I hope to offer some soon. What do you think of my versatile holiday door dolls? I made the pumpkin one last year and he was a hit so I thought I would start with him.

My little helpers

Lots of activities going on here. The days have been buzzing by before school starts. In the last week both kids have been in the local parade with scouts, we had a town fall festival, my son is still playing ball, we went to the Illinois state fair and a water park. Been a pretty busy week. This weekeknd is not much different- two swimming parties and company from out of town. I have worked a few shifts in there to. Still managed to get a little crafting done, just no pics taken yet. Thought I would throw in a few pics of my little helpers.
