Holiday Bazaar on November 8th, 2014 (updated)

Mountain View Middle School in Beaverton is hosting a Holiday Bazaar again this fall.  I’ll have a booth there for both my So Sew Gifts and Demarle at Home products.  Hope to see you there!

fall 14 bazaarI’m getting ready to make more taggies and potholders to sell at the bazaar:

Update: It turned out that I didn’t attend the bazaar this year.  Instead, I spent the day with Aaron and his family.  His lovely older sister Kira passed away Saturday night from the effects of cancer.  On Friday night, I made this blanket to take to her…it was much more meaningful than anything I made to sell at the bazaar.  Her sister Ambika had suggested making a blanket for her or others who were staying at the hospital, and I had fabric that was intended to make her headscarves plus matching blue fleece.  So I thoughtfully created a simple blanket and took it to her that morning, covering her up with love in my own way.

Snowy Weekend

Close up of So Sew Lanyard

Friday was a snow day…got the day off work and the whole weekend at home, so I have time for sewing and cross country skiing in the neighborhood.

I’ve been wanting to make a lanyard for the name badge I wear at quilt guild meetings.  Picked up the findings at Joanns and some sewing themed fabric from my stash.  Here’s the online tutorial I used: http://www.genxquilters.com/2013/03/10-minute-sewing-project-how-to-sew.html

I think it turned out great!  I guess I could have figured out a way to make it adjustable, but it works as something simple for now.  Can I make one for you? Check out the Shop page for more details.

Here’s the view outside my window above the sewing table this afternoon.  So peaceful!
