Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

I love this time of year. The air is so fresh and crisp. I want to give thanks for so many things. Good health, good food, a wonderful family and lots of great customers.

I have just listed on my site some gorgeous Cotswold ringlet locks in cream and hand dyed deep blonde. There is a Thanksgiving freebie on both my fiber site and my pattern site.

The special will end Nov. 30th.

The Big chill

Check out my 2 NEW Santa patterns. Mr Claus and his mouse and Mr. Claus Jr.

Well, I made it through my first show in 5 yrs. It was unseasonably cold. It felt like it was Jan. The show went quite well but I did catch a cold. I hope it lifts before Thanksgiving. Although I can't complain because it is the first cold I have had in 10 yrs.

Today we are suppose to have high winds and power outages. I have my fingers crossed that we do not loose our power.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

My first Christmas show in 5 Years

Bluefaced Border Leicester
Shetland Wool

Cormo Coopworths

For 10 years I did 5-6 Christmas shows. I believe I thrived on it. This Sat. I am doing a show in Middlebury, Vt. I think one should never skip a year or 5 years in my case. It is just too difficult to get back on track.

For over 12 years I have made Santa stars with hand carved faces. They have really become my signature. I never tire of making them. I think it is because there are no two alike. Plus I love trying out all the differnt kinds of wool. It really makes each one unique.

My Shop

Wow it is hard to believe it is Thanksgiving next week. I have decided to do a Christmas show for the first time in 5 years. After I opened Lowell Country Gifts 6 years ago it just became too difficult to get enough things made for showws plus the shop.

This year I am pleased to have a very talented glass blowers Christmas balls in my shop. His name is Jason Lewis. His work amazes me. It not just a glass blown ball. There is some really cool glass work going on inside the ball.
