Hi, folks! I completely forgot to announce this here on the blog, but I have wonderfully warm woolen mittens and fun one-of-a-kind Christmas stockings in my Etsy shop! There are just a handful (heehee!) of mittens left, so check them out now if you’re interested.
Our faithful US Postal Service’s 3-Day Priority Mail will get them to you before Christmas if you order by this Friday, December 16 (if you are in the US). It’s getting risky after that, but I’ll do my best to ship items quickly!
(There was some shop upkeep required as well. I find myself wishing those software/app developers would go on vacation and allow a little moss to grow under their techie creations back at home. It’s hard for us ordinary folk to keep up!)
Over at my Etsy shop you will find these two blankets now for sale:
“Summer Nostalgia” (57″ x 70″)
The “Summer Nostalgia” story is posted here.
“The Redbud” (62″ x 76″)

In the Etsy shop there are also several pairs of fleece-lined wool mittens…
…and lots of keepsake Christmas stockings for the special people in your life.
Please come take a look. The doors are open for Christmas shopping, window shopping and anytime shopping. Invite your friends!
In November, my newly-married daughter called and said, “I was thinking of sewing a pair of Christmas stockings for us — but then I thought of you…” Could I maybe sew them a pair? Would there be enough time? Her request fell into place after the year-end orders, and then I made the time. So for my dear daughter and son-in-law on the occasion of their first Christmas: keepsake woolen Christmas stockings.
(Unfortunately, our house is not equipped with its own fireplace mantel for the perfect photo shoot, but I do have this gorgeous oak buffet passed down from my parents. Hmmm, yes, I think it’ll do.)
