I love this time of year! It’s very dry so the trees haven’t been quite as vibrant this year, but still beautiful. I’ve been celebrating by making a lot of autumn themed jewelry. Even though it’s still quite hot outside, I can feel the winter coming in my bones. I instinctively start knitting and weaving and spinning, and drinking hot tea like crazy. I start thinking about making big pots of soup and building fires in the wood stove. I was fortunate enough to overhear a long conversation between two hoot-owls the other night! It was a perfect fall evening.
I’m working on a couple of custom orders right now… waiting on a few more things to come in the mail to finish one of them. Can’t wait to see the new tent! Last night I was working on a paper lantern to help light it for the Holiday Artist’s Market. I’m already starting to gather materials, and it’s more than a month away. I have really missed doing the summer market.
I’m on a mission to track down some used but serviceable white/solid table covers, be they sheets or table cloths, and any other items that would make for interesting display pieces. I am still looking for the right old suitcase to make into a necklace display.
