Welcome to the Workshop

Welcome to the Workshop

Monday, October 1, 2012


Oops, sorry it's been a while. We all got a bit sickly last week with a head cold and lay low.
Apart from seeing Louis CK's live show, I would never wear mascara to one of his shows. Talk about tears of laughter!
Otherwise, the mornings have been a little better. ABBA has helped put a smile on our dials and things are generally better. I made some nice food, Poppet wrote me a lovely blackboard message, I bought myself something frivolous and managed to get quite a decent amount of work done. We have a mouse in the house, so have started 'borrowing' the basement cats (child goes out into the street and drags them upstairs to our place by force) and it's nice having some pets around. Even if it's only part-time. I've even managed some crochet, though I should sew some ends in before it gets any bigger. Plus it's getting colder. Happy dance indeed!
Fall has arrived, leaves are turning (and falling) and the flowers are giving us one final show. Just wish the wasps would bugger off!
Here are some pics from last week....

Sigh. Colour.

On the deck.

Too much sleeping, too little mouse catching.

Mum, I love you so so much! Because of that I will give you 2 gold STARS!!!

Purchased for me! From super-talented Cara Carmina
Butterfly Poppet just completed for a special client.
I loved stitching her wings!
Christmas Poppet Decorations

And the result of all of my hard work and podcast listening is that I'll be stocking my Etsy store with lots of Christmas goodies at the end of October. This will be your one and only chance to grab something Christmas-y from me before the end of the year. After that I'm going to accept a limited amount of custom orders. You heard that right!
I'm making some decorations for your Christmas trees this year, what do you think of them so far?
Back to the grindstone now...
