Traveling Sewing Boxes and Stacks Of Patterns!

The weeks are slipping away as I am packing and finishing goods for the 2 months that I will be in Branson, Missouri at Silver Dollar City.  I finished up these 5 boxes during the last 2 evenings and inside is a plain little wool pinkeep filled with snippets of wool and crushed walnut shells.  I have about a dozen more to finish then it will be on to putting the finishing touches on a LOT more pieces I have in the last stages of being done.  

The majority of the kits are made and with the help of MOM I have just over 1,000 kits!  She has been cracking the whip (just kidding) but she does keep me on track :)  It has been great fun working with her and reminiscing about days gone by!  Thanks MOM :)

She put together over 1200 patterns last week and then we added them to the pile that we had been working on over the last few months.  My booth should be FULL to the brim with lots of new patterns, finished goods, kits, and tools of the trade!

I will be vending at Silver Dollar City from September 12th to October 26th....so if you are in the area please stop by and say Howdy!

Happy Trails.....Ginger

A Busy Summer!

 Wow it has been a whole month since I have been on here!  What have I been up too????
Well of course the grands are a big part of the summer and we have been busy with the library, outside play, reading books, and baking cookies :)
The punch needle is still popping through the cloth in the late evenings after the grandkiddos have gone home.  The above piece is about 15"  across and I like all the silly sheep.  

This lively rooster is one I did in a class recently with Heather Ritchie.  I used lots of different things to create the flowers and the bright rooster tail.  The edge is also crocheted.

I am teaching a couple of classes in oxford punch and decided a stocking would be a fun piece.  I have 7 patterns for stockings and mittens I will share the rest sometime soon.  I have included them all in a booklet.

I finally completed Betty's rug.....yes the lil' darlin' is 4 months old!  Momo is slow but sure :)

The summer is quickly passing and I have been in full speed getting ready to leave for Branson, Missouri the early part of September.  I will be vending for 2 months at Silver Dollar City.  So lots of packing, sorting, and packaging has been happening around the farm!

Hopefully I will be able to catch up on what all of you have been doing soon.

Happy Trails.....Ginger
