WIP Thursday - Downhill Slide to Christmas

Today marks the halfway point of November, then the next thing I know it will be Christmas Eve!  I'm on track to have my orders all finished this month and mailed out, and I'm even fitting in craft show prep when I need a break from the purses!
Mountain of embroidered hoods for towels, they will get finished soon!

Villains Snowdrop (Blue Calla)

There are some fabrics I see in my groups that I think 'ooh, that looks pretty cool, but I'm not sure it will be popular,' and then I either don't order, or only get a small amount.  When it comes, I'm usually blown away and instantly regret not getting more!  These villains are some of that fabric.  It looked vibrant on my computer, but almost too vibrant to be real...but it's even MORE amazing in person!
Villains are more interesting!

WIP Wednesday - The Eye of the Storm

I survived last week, where I was trying to get orders out on a deadline, prep for the craft show, do Halloween stuff and anything else people tossed at me.  I feel like I needed a bit of a breather, so I've been slowly working on the next 4 orders this week...although I really want to get them out!
Ready to be features on a hobo style bag!

Modified Floral Wars Hosta Hobo (Blue Calla)

I prefer to follow patterns because the good ones have figured out all the problem areas, have been thoroughly tested and there are usually several versions that others have made and I can use for inspiration.  I love the Hosta Hobo pattern from Blue Calla, her patterns are detailed enough to be eye catching and well written!
Pretty front, the green glitter vinyl perfectly matches Yoda!

WIP Thursday. Or Friday, Whatever - November? Eek!

I survived October, barely.  Now it's the real crunch time, finishing up all the orders, preparing for the holidays, getting craft show stock, and maybe even decorating my house this year!  I did promise a child that we'd sew stuff for her in December, and the other kids have some requests that I've carried over from previous years...I'd better get started, one is leaving for college next year!

Helmeted Hosta Hobo - (Blue Calla)

I always forget how big the Hosta Hobo is until I start making one.  Someday I might try the 'small' one, but so far everyone that wants it for a camera bag wants BIG!
So much pretty PURPLE!!
