I wish my cats were better at sewing

…so they could help me with all the work I wanted to get done tonight. Alas, my sewing room has fabric all over the floor, but after creating a larger than life to-do list for today, I think I’m going to call it quits for the night and relax fora little bit and get to get to bed at a decent hour. Tomorrow is my long day at school with all the little ones…and goodness knows you’d better be ready for them or it will be chaos. But I wanted to make sure to keep you updated before I shut down the office. I wish I could sing you the goodbye song from the Sound of Music, but I guess this will have to do. (Anybody else like to sing that in their pajamas as a kid?)

I had such a great time at the Flea Market at Everlasting Blooms last Saturday. It was fun to talk to everyone and make friends with the vendors, especially the women at the hot fudge booth. 😉 I managed not to eat a lifetime’s amount of fudge in free samples, but it took quite  bit of will power. I’m also pleased to announce that I now have some items for sale in the Everlasting Blooms shop. This show has so many adorable things! It is definitely worth a visit, even just to look.

I’m working on lining up a few holiday sale shows. I’ll be sure to keep you posted. Tonight I made more drawstring pouches. Again…its too dark to get a decent photo. I promise I’ll post them soon. I made some itty-bitty ones that are perfect for gift cards or small jewelry…I love making cute things!

I still haven’t had as much time to sew lately as I’d like because I’m been working so hard on lesson planning and everything art education related. But I’m loving really loving my job, and thankful to have a steady income that allows me to all of this fun sewing. However, I know the holidays are going to be here before I know it and I have all kinds of plans for holiday sales, so I’d better get moving!

Here’s an artist I stumbled upon today while doing some lesson planning. I love her style!
