We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

Before the Opening Part Two (sewing)

Here are a few of the project that I have been making for the shop for Saturday, there are plenty more but they are all ready down there.

My first pillow sham I got to play with lots of stitches with Erroll for this.


These little bags have two doll clothespins, scrap fabric and yarn, and a little blank book. I'm calling them Two on an Adventure, you get to make the dolls and then write or draw about the adventure they take.

This is the Button Up Clutch, I'm still a little intimidated by button holes so the vintage button and ribbon is my solution.


And this, this is my baby. Here are my blue elephants finally realized. This is also my first completed quilt (unless you count the one I did in sixth grade). I'm still working out how to get everything to line up.

Those bags are brilliant! What a great idea. I would buy some for Elisabeth when she's older! Meaning you will of course have to have an online store in the future :)
