new work!

i've been working on some new silk pieces! these strawberry ribbon lariats are so adorable.

they have a berry on each end of a yard of velvet ribbon. you can drape it around you neck or tie it on choker style.
this is my favorite way to wear it,....
wrapped around the wrist bracelet style!
these will be available at my next show and in my soon,(i hope),etsy shop.

try to be happy

the weather had been strange for several days. the heat that we had been having was gone and the clouds kept coming in and out.
i loved the blue skies and the gorgeous pinky/blue sunsets that we had been having.
now the rain has once again come back and i am not so happy about it. here is something that makes be a bit happy.
this is my pincushion,this photo was taken awhile back so i have even more pins in it right now.
my mom stitched up this pincushion for me and alot of the pins have been gifts from my friend tammie. it's usually sitting on my table at shows since i tend to work on projects all the time,and women are always picking it up and asking to buy it. most are sad to find that it's not for sale and some have even gotten a bit huffy about it.
my pincushion brightens my day and makes me happy,(reminds me of people who love me).
what brightens your day and makes you happy?

sorry i haven't posted in awhile,but life has been busy and it promises to get even busier.
nick will soon be graduating from high school and then we will be moving. i was hoping that i might be able to keep our small home,but it's just not going to work out. i can either pay the rent or help nick get through college,and since i know his father would want nick to continue his education,getting nick through school is what i will do.
i am hoping to soon have my etsy site up and running and am looking into teaching and selling at some new places and will try to keep you all up to date. tomorrow nick and i will be at the mermaid's mercantile in solano beach come by and see us and all the other wonderful vendors!
