November is.... Busy!

November is turning out to be a very busy month for me! This week my students are performing the fall play (three performances, with me backstage as assistant director).

Saturday, my husband and my sister are going to have a booth at the Fairgrounds Flea Market. Check out my husband's furniture here, and my sister's photography here.

Next weekend (the 13th and 14th), my sister and I are sharing a booth at the State Farmer's Market Craft Fair -- We've been a few times as shoppers, so we're excited to go as vendors as well.

The weekend after that (the 20th), we will participate in the last Downtown Designer's Market for 2010!

Then, it's Thanksgiving week!

Of course, I always find time to embroider... My current projects are lots of kitchen towels for the upcoming markets-- I just finished a bunny and am almost done with a butterfly. Both simple designs, but very pretty!

Christmas Crafting -- Embroidery!

I just listed some adorable vintage embroidery patterns on Etsy, perfect for Christmas crafting-


The two shown here, plus a few more! All $3 or $4. These are from a collection I have of rare patterns that were published as freebies in magazines in the 60s and early 70s, so you don't see these particular collections often!
