August Work

I've been spending the past week working on a stack of Owl Mamas - some of which will be sent to Young Blood in Atlanta and the rest of which will be used to stock up my table for my upcoming markets and to be listed in the shop.

After feeling a bit bored of stitching 18 tiny beaks and double the eye shimmers - I decided to take a break to sew up this little mushroom. He's in the shop and now I feel sufficiently prepped for more owl work.

See you on the other side (of the owl pile)!

Oh and here's Mip the cat enjoying some sun, just because.

It's August!

Custom Owl Mama, originally uploaded by Needlings.

I know every month at least 10 people I come in contact with say, "Can you believe it is [insert present month] already?!" And I say, "no!," every single time.

But they do tend to come one after another so you'd think we'd all get the hang of it.

Anyway, it is indeed August already and, probably mostly thanks to some wonderful trips, June and July hardly felt like they happened at all.

I've finished this little custom Owl Mama and listed her in the shop as another owly option and really need to get to work on a batch of them for the coming markets/shows/consignment/etc. because I'm currently Owl Mama-less! I might fit in something fun and different before starting another batch but we'll see. It's a supply and demand thing (yeah, I took high school economics).

I'm so excited that my mom will be not only hanging out with me for MacFair at the museum of art at McMaster University in Hamilton this November but that she will actually be selling her wares! Her first show - and then of course I'll be there too, hopefully at the table next to hers.
She's excited too - we've been hashing out ideas for displays and I even managed to acquire some free baskets they were going to toss out at the bookstore I work part-time at so I think it will be nice and will surely suit her.

Well, there are still a few months in between to figure it all out but we all know how that goes.

Enjoy the rest of your summers!
