Strawberry Festival 2010


The Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival has come and gone.
Lots of preparations and planning for 150K people.
Here is how the booth finally turned out...


The doorstops in the left of the picture proved to be a very valuable asset.
Many, many folks stopped by just to ask or guess what in the world they actually were?
We loved it! Thanks doorstops.


As much as I like the look of the hanging bowls in the shutters,
not one onlooker felt comfortable enough to touch them.
Sorry.


More bowls!

In typical Lindsey fashion, her jewelry and accessories were masterfully displayed.

Here is Miss Pleated Poppy giving the final touches


My second booth partner brought the laughs! Here is Dondi...

and here is the gorgeous orange messenger-style bag that I purchased from her!
Happy me!!

The weekend was beautiful, inspiring and wonderful!!

Sew, Sew, Sew Busy!!

The 27th annual Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival is only three days away! EEK! I am giving it a go and sharing a booth with two other wonderfully creative gals. Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy and Dondi from Dondi Bags. I am picturing the booth now! Can you say eye candy? If you are able, come check us out on the main drag in front of The Village Grill!

Lots of preparations. Daily hours of this,


have produced endless piles of this.


Good thing for this,


to end up with this,


and this.


With SO, SEW, SO much more to do before Saturday!!

My Baby is THREE!

Today my baby turned three. 
He is a very proud three. 
He is a very large three. 
He is a very loud three.
He is fabulous.







With Daddy out of town, it was fun to have Nana and Papa come visit to celebrate the big three-year-old!

All Things Red- Just Because...

My blog misses me. She calls to me each night before I sit down to decompress from the day's chaos. She knows I am busy and tired, and she isn't pushy, but I still hear her beckoning. So tonight I am answering with photos. I noticed a common RED thread in my recent days and thought you might like to share in some of the beauty and some of the ugly from the past week.

A wonderful, not to mention wonderfully-talented, friend delivered this masterpiece this week! I love everything poppy!


Lots of new bowls to add to the pile this week in preparation for the Strawberry Festival coming in two weeks! Sew! Sew! Sew!

Cousins in RED!

Disneyland- Still my happy place!


Stay tuned for a preview of new bowl designs ready to add to the shop next week! Lots of blue with a bit of childhood thrown in. I love new fabric! Thanks for stopping by...

Another Shipment Ready to Go!

Whew! Many days of cutting, ironing, cutting, ironing and kids asking, "WHAT are you doing?" has finally brought me to this...


A very large stack of fabric shipped off to the die cutter. Many, many new bowl designs on their way! Stay tuned, I can't wait to share...
