Fall is Calling!

Next to Spring, I must say that Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the changing of the leaves (which is barely noticeable in California) but if you look closely you can still see it. The Floss Silk trees are in full bloom with their pink blossoms fluttering in the wind.

I love the smell of scented pine cones and getting ready for Halloween. Something strange happens to me this time of year. I go a little nutty with arts and crafts for the kids. I get in full blown holiday mode, making cupcakes and cookies. I pull out the decorations. Sift through last years costumes and can't wait to see what the kids want to dress up as. It gets me all giddy inside.

With all this said, there is not much time left for sewing. Maybe the wee hours of the night? I'm still amazed that anyone can sleep through my late night sewing fits. I've had lots of dolls, pillows and bears on my cutting table these days. Finally the dolls and SOME bears are done. Here is a sneak peak. Enjoy and HAPPY FALL!

I've been dreaming alot. Creating not so much... not intentionally, just because life has gotten hectic as it often does this time of year. I finally finished off a stack of dolls. Super cute. Prettiest ones yet! They will make their way to my shop in the next couple of days.

If only there were more hours in the day. Stay tuned!
