The Witch is Confused!



The Witch who resides in the corner of the studio is very confused.  I think she is a little miffed to be quite frank.  Her rug hooker necklace gleams and sparkles while she watches the stuffing, red and green hand dyed wool and tiny beads fly around the studio.  "Nothing orange and black my Dearie?" she cackles.

With only a few short weeks before the Christmas Craft Show the studio looks more like Santa's Workshop.  So be silent silly Witch!  Monday evening you may fly back to the shadows in the corner of the Halloween box and not be forced any longer to watch the tiny hand stitched ornaments, hand hooked feather tree mats, little bird pin cushions, felted wool acorns and more taking shape on the worktable.

I'll share more details soon.  I must go limber up my fingers and take a cup of Witches Brew to calm the nervous Witch in the corner!

Have a Spooky one my Dearies!!

  6. What wonderful goodies, you are so very talented. If you discover after the craft show, you have a stuffed owl and a few acorns left over, could I possibly make a purchase? With all this snow swirling around outside, I am feeling quite confused, it is October, Fall,right? at least my calendar says so. Hope you are enjoying the weekend. Greetings from snowy Maine, Julie.

  7. Oh....I am happily confused!! I adore your Witchie - and her necklace a la Lauren....! (Aren't they the best??!) - But truly loving your hand-did's.....Gotta say, those little felted acorns are adorable....I made some a few years ago, but hmmmmm....somehow they disappeared (could a four-legged fur meister have something to do with that???) Wishing you a great show....I'm sure your goods will be best sellers! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  15. Cathy, I love your witch with the spoon necklace. She has good taste I must say. She must get that from you because all your work is just beautiful. I love the cardinal and the owl too.

    We are getting wet melting snow and wind here in Fredericton, New Brunswick and the wood stove is lit. I'm getting ready to stir a witches brew soup to warm my innards.

    I got a new bull calf this morning and an older cow that can't get up and is ready to calve any day now. My Gmail is deleted and I have to use Anonymous to leave comments.

    Take care, Julia , from Of Petals and Wool.
