Treasury...Another Fun One

Yay! I got another Treasury spot. I stayed up until nearly 1:40 am for it. There is so much talent on Etsy. Hope you enjoy.

New in my Shop...Pumpkins, Indian Corn, Cider...

I absolutely love the fall season.  Things are starting to cool down and the landscape becomes all my favorite colors.  Orange, yellow, rust, red, brown...beautiful.  My bags are starting to reflect the season as well.  I'm working with a new palette of fabrics and colors.  See what you think.

Officially Jealous...

I am just drooling over the sewing and craft rooms on this site. http://www.sewing.org/html/my_sewing_room.html
You have to go check it out. I must admit that I am an organizer. I love to buy containers and drawer units and shelves and boxes. These rooms really inspire me to rethink my space. Here are a few pictures...

New Treasury...This is Fun!

Well, this time one of my pieces was chosen to be in a Treasury. I have just joined the EtsyFAST team-Etsy Fiber Artist Street Team. This is a very talented group of fiber artists who have amazing items on Etsy. You should check them all out by entering EtsyFAST in the search box. Can you guess which piece is mine?

Treasury...So Cool

There is a really cool feature to the Etsy website. It's called Treasury. "The Treasury is a member-curated gallery of short-lived lists of 12 hand-picked items each (plus four alternates). It functions as a high-demand (and pretty!) promotional tool that many devoted Etsians fight to get. Members can feature their favorite items, items selected on a theme, or just however they like. The Treasury is not intended for self-promotion, but instead to acknowledge and share the many cool things for sale on Etsy. Admin often choose an exceptional Treasury list to promote on the home page and occasionally make them to tie into Storque articles or special events and occasions."

Here is the Treasury I created...

My Sewing Room

Well, it's not perfect yet, but it's getting there.  
I just need some storage shelves with bins for product.  And some additional lighting over my cutting table.  I love the fresh green color on the walls.   This room has two windows with great lighting during the day.  I have a table in the corner for my television -gotta watch my HGTV.

Some New Things

I'm starting to think about fall.  Pumpkins, football, changing leaves, cool breezes, hot cider, sweaters.  What a lovely season!

We went to the Indianapolis Museum of Art today.  We got there early so that we could walk through the gardens before it got too hot.  What beautiful landscaping.  There were chairs set up in the formal gardens for a wedding and a bride and groom were having their picture taken by the Lily House.  We walked through the greenhouse and found some absolutely beautiful begonias. There was a white flowering vine on the fence that surrounded the greenhouse.  It had beautiful small white blooms and the aroma was absolutely fabulous.  The gardener who was watering for the day told us it was a late blooming clematis.  The vine was full of buds.   Lucky for us they were selling the same vine.  We bought two.  Now we just need to build the trellis to support them.  I think we'll just put them in the ground this year and let that be a spring project.  After the museum we went shopping in some local shops.  I must remember to do this more often.  It gets my creative juices flowing to see art and local handcrafts.  It was a very lovely day!
