Busy Busy Busy!

Hello Friends!

After a week of hunkering down inside the studio, I'm coming up for some air! The weather here in Phoenix has changed drastically since my last post. It seems we went from 110 to 80 in days, with a bunch of rain in between. (I thought it didn't rain here??)

This time of year is always when I'm frantically busy with orders flowing in left and right from customers prepping for Christmas, but I promised myself that I would actually take some time to enjoy the gorgeous weather and that starts with going to see the Arizona Coyotes home opener tonight. We have a bunch of fall festivals and art shows I'm looking forward to in the next few weeks, too!

I started this week making 50 of these cute Halloween gift tags for Peggy how is using them to put on favors for her Halloween party. 

Then I stitched up and finished another one of these Be Jolly tart ornaments. I have never had a customer tell me they had something in their cart when someone else purchased it, so I felt the need to make another one for her. 

Then I took a break from stitching and finished up a custom order for beaded scissor fobs for Linda.

And the last thing to leave the studio? These lovelies stitched by Robin. 

I do a lot of custom work for people and I really do enjoy it all, but Robin has a very similar taste to my own personal taste when it comes to stitching, so I am really enjoying finishing her stitching.

What fun tags you created! Your tart stitch turned out fabulous. The fobs are fabulous. And you already know I am thrilled with how you finished my pieces. Okay, who/what are the Arizona Coyotes? Enjoy the home opener and the rest of the weekend!
