Ah, there is a definite fall smell in the air this morning! The current temperature outside my home is 62 and the high is only supposed to be in the low 70's. Awesome! Of course this is the mid-west and the weather can change drastically within hours. Anyway, for now, it's superb! Speaking of the mid-west, I want to let you know that I have joined the Kansas Etsy Team! I'm really excited about being a part of the team, meeting fellow Kansas Etsians, learning from them, and generally spreading the word about Kansas' artisans! Cool huh? One fellow team member is my friend, Liza, from MacKomics Studio. Liza is a genuine artist and all round cool gal. She lives in Lawrence and hosts artist events every week. Check out her blog for more information. You'll also want to check out her blog because she has graciously accepted my request to to finish out the year as host of Dress Up 2011. I've posted the Simply Link link for September's Dress Up, so if you have your dress ready, you can post it there. Or, wait and Liza will have a link up for September dresses and then she'll pick the themes for October, November and December! Thanks Liza!
What have you been working on this Labor Day weekend? I started this little embroidery sample a few days ago and finished up last night. I think she's pretty cute, but I sort of wish I would have used red, or a darker color, for her hat and dress. I'll try this again. A perfect project for when I'm laid up after my knee surgery!
I've also been working on a "Curse." This is the word my friend used to describe the kind of bag she is looking for. She wants a case for her iPad as well as a purse for her other stuff she carries with the iPad. So, I'm experimenting with a messenger style bag that will carry her iPad securely, her purse items, while not bulking, as well as the power source for the iPad. I've made a sort of inside pocket for the iPad and, hopefully, will get a chance to work on the rest of the Curse later today.
Have a great Sunday, friends! Have a great Labor Day, too!
