Just finished the first quart of canned peaches I made over the summer. Boy, they were DELICIOUS. I didn't know canned peaches could be so tasty. And I didn't get botulism! Is there a dormancy period? I checked the seal and everything. Next year- more! What a treat it was to eat some fruit in December. I'm a bit of a stickler for buying fruit and veggies only in season- this makes for long potato and cabbage filled winters.. now I've got a little bright spot in the middle of it. Only 5 quarts left- rations begin..

The above a picture proving Pidge is the ultimate ham. I swear she hears the camera turn on and she needs to be in the frame. Of course I spent 5 minutes making smootchy noises to get her to look at the camera. The rest are a blurry bunch of her butt and swishing tail. She was trying to nose behind the flannel sheet background and probably get to the warmth of the radiator.

Mustard and Raspberry

What a combination! I think my new favorite combo is mustard yellow and raspberry. They are just so punchy together.

New Seafoam and Black Scarf

Can't believe Christmas is next week. I really put a move on with the new warp- making commissions and a few for the shop. This scarf was inspired by an illustration of Jimi Hendrix I found in a Taschen Books flyer we got in the mail last week.

I've remembered to take photos this year of Santa's workshop to share with you after the holidays. I'm excited especially about the gift I made for my sister. Not sure if it tops last year's gift , but I still love it!

New Business Cards

My first letterpressing experience- thank you Amy! It was an awesome learning process- reminds me of sewing and weaving and rolling pasta.. lots of time-consuming work but totally worth it. Sorry for the short post- still exploring the new computer.. next step installing photoshop etc.

Second Storie

Here are some photos from my first craft show! Second Storie was great - can't believe how many people came both days. My table set up before the market began.

Lots of great vendors and such inspiration.. I definitely have some new goals for the new year. A few of my favorites (great people too!) : the Maple Ridge, Pearl & Marmalade, secret pocket, abby try again and the fuzzybunny ... just off the top of my head.

p.s. special thanks to the girls of second storie who made me feel less nervous and so inspired!

Here are 2 of the 3 scarves left post-show. These never got onto etsy- I made 11 scarves for the show thinking I would photograph them afterwards..

I've ordered my computer and can't wait to finally get caught up on email, blogging and internets- all from the comfort of wherever I choose (so excited for my first laptop!)
