Good Morning - Peek @ stuff

Hi everyone,
I have a couple of pictures of the shop. But it is only the sign and the outside of the building. I had no time to go this weekend and work at fixing the shop, hubby has been sick again and mom was visiting. So tomorrow is another day. The shop will not be opened on the 1st of September like I wanted but I am working on it.
Also here are some photos of one of my new releases, still have to frame it.
Have a good day

Second Annual Free Halloween Doll Chart

Hi everyone,
I gave away a chart last year of a pumpkin doll and thought it would be great if I could do it every year. So here is the second one.
Hope you enjoy her and here is a link to the one for last year if you missed it.
Just click on the chart picture and print from your computer.
Check back for more pictures this weekend of the new shop coming soon. I plan on doing alot more work and taking many more pictures.
Have an early Halloween Treat

Working Can Be Fun?? Oh YES

Good morning
I am updating you with a few pictures. One is of the shop before we painted and the other is a pic of the green on the wall. Still have to do the white trim and them I can clean and start putting all of my treasures in the shop. I cant wait, I love to decorate and move things around(it will be always changing). I have so many ideas for classes, I just need the time to make the models.

And I have been stitching up a couple of new releases. I will share pics of those maybe by this weekend.

And yes we had to take a break and had a picnic in the park the other day and this is a photo of the view. It was a beautiful day. We shared our lunch with the ants! HAHA!!

Then we pulled over to take a few pictures of our friendly neighbors taking a stroll.

Off to paint some funky chairs and all that other stuff.

Have a good day, feels like fall here. Brrr

What Have I been up to? Well I have been busy painting and hunting for things that I could use in a shop. I have always wanted a shop of my own. Not a big one just one that I can sell my things and sell my painted furniture. Have people come by and visit and stitch together. Like a studio where you can buy things too. Well I found the perfect place to start. It’s in the middle of York Village in Maine. Just about 1 mile from where I live. It is very small, only 300 square feet, but just right for me to start. I plan to open September 1st and still so much to do. My TODO list is huge but I am just going with the flow. I would love to give classes so I have to plan those and make models plus stitch my own models for charts. Busy Fingers!!
Well I will update you with more as soon as I can and photos too
Working on my Funky Flower Garden now, have a good day

Beautiful Day

What a beautiful day it has been. We have been working on a surprise that I have waiting for a long time. So maybe next week I can share more or maybe by this weekend. But it has been keeping us very busy. I just finished 2 more Funky Flowers and a leaf pattern. The Funky Flowers will be ready by next Monday and the leaf will be too but I am working on a free pattern to go along with the leaf, so that might take a few more days. I will have an update on my Etsy shop by the end of the week.
So check back for new things.
I have been checking up on blogs but have not had any time to leave any comments, sorry, but I am out there reading, sometimes its late at night.
Here are some pics of the new flowers and leaf. Have a good night and I'll talk to you again soon.
