Ultimate Ladies Day 2010

Yesterday I joined my friend for Ultimate Ladies Day in Neenah, WI. It started with breakfast at the Holiday Inn (yes the photo above is a table set for breakfast - champagne + orange juice = tasty mimosas!). Once breakfast was over we were set loose on the town with a bag full of coupons and many of the local businesses having activities that we could participate in.

It was a fun to visit all these places that are 5 minutes away and for some reason I never really go to - plus I got a manicure and learned how to change a bike tire!

I have also come to the realization that I will never be a photo-journalist as I kept thinking about taking pictures, but didn't follow through.

Little Birdies Fly Away...

The winner of my tweet little mini wallet is #8 - riteousbyfaith of Teapots and Robots - Congratulations!

On a side note - I finally finished and photographed my wallets. I sent some to darn knit {anyway} and the rest (pictured above) will be listed in my Etsy shop in the next few days.

What's In Your Wallet?

This past weekend I attended the Winter Farm Market in downtown Appleton. I changed my setup and really wanted to take a picture, but for some reason I kept putting it off and then I didn't think of it until I had half of my stuff put away at the end - oh well, there's always next time.

Once again I am working on a new batch of wallets - about 30 this time. I am done with all the sewing and just need to finish adding snaps and give them a final press, then I am going to take a short sewing sabatical (and then I might have something else to talk about).

Tweet Little Giveaway

Although the weather has warmed up to a balmy 45 degrees, it has been dreary and rainy here for the past few days so I thought this mini wallet might brighten things up (it's only coincidence that this both my giveaways have been bird themed).

Just leave a comment under this post and I will pick one on Friday 3/26 using a random number generator.

Good Luck!

Introducing the Becky Bag...

Last year around Memorial day I made a bag for my friend using an original pattern. Since her name is Becky, I told her any more bags that I made using that pattern would be named after her - and here they are:
