200 Items

I am very pleased to let you all know we now have 200 items for sale in my shop. I am busy with crochet, embroidery, and quilting projects for 3 new babies in my family, Christmas presents and of course... the shop. This weekend we will be having another Tie Dye session so all the sewing will have to be put away for a few days but it sure is worth it. We have so much fun.
All of the shirts I posted here are for sale along with many more.

We have been trying to think "out of the box" when it comes to new color combos. The shirt above was an experiment that came out beautifully, I think.
I love these two.

For your little goblin...

For the little elf in your life.

There is something about this one the reminds me of The Grinch...

I love Christmas. I was working on a Christmas quilt last year and I ended up putting it away due to indecision. I think I will pull it out and give it another shot. Last night I watched "Nightmare before Christmas" and now I am in the mood! ;0)

Summer Shots

Today I am a bit sad because summer is over and we have had our first real snow storm.
I miss my bees and my cactus flowers...
and the sunflowers.
I don't normally like petunias but I couldn't resist the color of this one.

The hot peppers have been made into jelly and salsa.
The geraniums have been moved into the has the sunniest window.
The berries have been eaten, right of the vine.
Ten months after I started the seeds, we are out of tomatoes.
Oh, how I will miss them. The butterflies and mint are gone.
I still have Jackie-O-Lantern! She will be with us until...

... Halloween! ;0)
On to the next incredible season, Autumn.
The best thing about Autumn around here is the pine needles and the wind. The needles rain down with every gust and when they get warm the exude a fresh clean pine smell that I can't get enough of.
Oh... and the woodstove fires, so cozy.
I love Fall.

Soft as a Squirrel

I have been playing with the squirrels again. I can't resist. This little guy was so hungry he let me get very close.
and then he bolted up the nearest tree. I love his pert little ears.

He couldn't resist my yummy sunflower seeds so he was on his way back in no time.

He is peeking...
Now he is back in action and if I hold very still...

I can get closer.I wish I could pet his soft fur. Look at his sweet little nose.

His fingers are lovely, so long and able.
I bet he is so very soft.
I love nature's little critters.
