Signs of normalcy?


and in the middle of all this, this happens...

Have I mentioned our move from hell? I think I have.
Yesterday I thought I needed to put some home in the house, i.e. make a nice, prepared from scratch dinner, instead of the frozen dinners or take outs we've been eating for the past few weeks.  Just as I was cutting up the chicken, Esther began crying.  She was shaking her head and crying.  When I came up to her and touched her ear, the one she seemed to be bothered by, she yelped.  I also thought one of her eyes looked a bit cloudy.  I immediately called the vet who told me that I could have an appointment in 2 hours.  I couldn't wait that long with a crying baby at home, so I took her to the vet and waited 2 hours, all the while I was crying. To make a long story a little bit shorter, Esther has an ear infection, but what is worse is that she has developed a cataract in her eye.  It was sudden, it came on so fast!  We don't know the reason, what brought it on and what the extent of the damage is, she will need to see an ophthalmologist, .  Our poor Esther.

There I go, crying again.


Oh man, moving sucks.

My Color Class in Chicago is coming up in August!

In all of the turmoil here at the studio and at home, boxes, bags, piles, I realized that my Color Inspiration class in Chicago with ANG chapter Sassy Stitchers, is coming up in August.  This makes me very happy, because:

  • Reid is from Chicago and I have very fond memories of visiting his parents there when we first met.  
  • Chicago is such a wonderful city, with such a wealth of art.
  • I'm so looking forward to meeting the ladies of Sassy Stitchers!  I mean just the name seems like this is going to be a great group.
  • There is no class that quite excites me like my Color Inspiration!  Here are some examples of students who have completed the class and their interpretation of a photograph...

These are just a few of the many amazing examples my students have done.  If you are interested in coming to this class, contact Sassy Stitchers

Back to the boxes!


Can I have some sympathy here?


BOOM, they are gone.

Thank you for snatching up my bags so fast!  I'm sorry that I couldn't accommodate everyone, but I do have a few more goodies.

I have 5 tulip bags, these are wrist bags about 7.5" tall and 4" wide.  They are clenched with a belt and a needlepoint magnetic buckle.  Very cute and can be used to carry some small items when you need a free hand.  I'm offering these for $35 (plus shipping), each.

I have 3 brown ones, (each brown one is different), one mustard color and one lime color.  Just write Brown, Mustard, or Lime.  I will happily accommodate the first five of you.  Send me your Paypal email and I'll send you a Paypal invoice.



It may sound crazy...

However, I think it's time to say goodbye to the last of my Ultrasuede/Needlepoint bags.  I have 8 left, and I am offering them at $50 each, (plus shipping).  Each bag has a needlepoint piece of about 5.5" square, everything is beautifully handmade.  Ultrasuede bag, Ultrasuede lining in a contrast color, magnetic closure and cute feet on the bottom to keep the bag off the ground.  The bags are approximately 10" x 12" x 4" with cushy cute handles.  Watch the video to see all the colors that are left.

If you want one of these bags for a steal, email me and I will send you a Paypal invoice and ship your choice off to you.   Quick before I change my mind...  ;)
