Happy Spring-a-ling







Golly! It has almost been a week since I have checked in here in Blogville. Where to begin? First of all, I have a few pictures to share from our St. Patrick's Day parade. It was a pretty day and we all enjoyed ourselves tremendously.
I sold my Frog Prince and Cattail bowls almost immediately and I have decided to attribute that to my neighbor Graham's fabulous photo taking. He is a seasoned people photographer but has been helping me with some of my product photos. Good eye Graham!
Next, I walked out of my front door this morning and was greeted by my first blooms! These crocuses must have a calendar down there somewhere because yes this is the first day of Spring.
For some reason this glorious sight motivated me to run my felting wash: 5 large bowls, 1 small, 1 chocolate brown clutch/pouch and 2 experimental business card pouches.
Finally, the boy went to Grandma's for an overnight and I took the time by myself this afternoon to blast the Street Dogs and finish my Cattail bag once and for all. So here it is.
I tried a new loop/button construction and the button itself was made specifically for the bag by my Mother in Law Carol. She doesn't have many buttons in her Etsy Shop right now but I am sure she would love to make some to order for you.
Thanks for checking in with me! I know I have been delinquent and I will try harder to post more often.

Also: I posted the pictures in the wrong order. Sorry. Won't happen again:-)

Love, love, LOVE the cattail bag. Can't wait to see the business card holders. I want one, and I don't even have business cards! LOL

Happy spring! Can't wait to see what you embroider on the new bowls etc. Hooray for button loops closures! Love that!
