closing shop

This is our last month in our physical shop. We have had a wonderful 3 years here, but the economy and expense of running a shop has gotten to both of us. It will be a pleasure to spend our time doing what we love which is creating our own items. We will do some shows and markets and will be updating and improving our website online store- as well as continue on etsy and artfire. I will miss our loyal customers, it has been a pleasure working with them. I will also miss this beautiful porch and the summer days spent stitching in those rocking chairs! On to new experiences and Happy New Year!

Lavender Pincushion

A new pincushion using some of the overdyed wool from a shop in St. Croix Falls. I made two, one went to California and one went to Lanesboro. We drove down there yesterday to make a delivery-Cornucopia Art Center is a beautiful gallery. We are looking forward to being members there.
As you can see from the sidebar I will be participating in One World One Heart blog giveaway again this year. It is a great way to find and visit others blogs. Last year my giveaway was one of my pincushions and it will be again this year. I now just have to decide on the color and design! Click on the badge on the sidebar to get all the details about participating. OWOH starts on Jan. 25th and ends on Feb.15th. Thanks to Lisa Swifka for all her hard work hosting this! And please come visit, Leave a comment on that particular post and maybe win a pincushion!
