I make no resolutions

Starting 2017 fresh and debt free has awakened a sleeping desire to create.  Over the past few years I have come to my studio pulled things out, put them back; started some projects and left them lay…

Until I was just as depressed as before I started and now awash in fabric which had lost it’s meaning.

Previously I had taken the “*Process Pledge” and wanted to share with you what I was doing and how I was getting it done.  However, my old nemesis Depression and his side kick Lack of Funds found me not able to function as I had intended.  I needed a do over!

The first step in this re-boot is to clean up, sort out what I have, and then finish a gift that is now overdue to my lovely Sister-in-law and a teal block for my friend Kate in Australia who sews them together, quilts them, and then donates them for Ovarian Cancer.

My steps:

  1. Complete the gift for my SIL and the Teal block for Kate
  2. Make a wool coat for me which is a lofty ambition, but I have my fabric and my lovely pattern.  I will enjoy this even if it is slow work.
  3. After practicing on me I look forward to a couple of fun coats for my Etsy shop.  I have a vision of what I want to create and will be drawing it out before I tackle the fabrics!
  4. Just keep creating and sharing my progress!

A journey begins with the first step and forward momentum takes it from there

I believe this.  So, no resolutions, just a call to creativity for myself and then share the process and progress along the way!  The projects will get done when they get done Knowing this when I start means there will be no pressure and no deadline.

What lies ahead on your map for 2017?

Ready or Not!

I have put it off for far too long.

The time is now or never. 

So,

Ready or Not, my Etsy store is open!

First items are Mad Chicken Lady Hats.  Why?  Because you and I both know that Spring has a few tricks up her sleeve.  If you have early morning chores to do (feed the livestock, walk the dog) and the wind is blowing you may like these MCL hats.  The original hat can be viewed on an early post, Confessions of a Mad Chicken LadyHERE.  New hats are on sale at Farmlet Originals.  HERE .

BestFriend1This hat was born of my frustration for ill fitting caps that won’t stay down, and scarves that won’t stay on in the wind.

I also have a few aprons up and there will of course be many more items as time goes by.  Bob and I have future plans for a few woodcraft items too!

My favorite!

FrenchPost1Please  go have a look and and I hope you like what you see!

A special notice to my out of the states readers:

I am still learning the ins and outs of listing and postage procedure.  If you see an item and you might like it, please let me know and I will mark it as on hold for you.  I can then put in your mailing info and get you a postage price.  Thank you for your patience while I learn.

PS:  If you like it let me know.  If you think the pricing is off (too high or too low) let me know that too.

Thank you!
