In the Workroom Recap : Week 312

Hi guys! If you're visiting from my One of a Kind Artisan profile (there have been lots of you lately), thanks for checking in! I'm spending the month on a marathon sewing kick to have lots and lots of goodies for the show in December! I hope to meet you all there!


Last week had a fun little Halloween break in the middle of it but was mostly spent finishing up my last store restock order until post-One of a Kind life after December 8th! 12 Owl Mamas for Kid Icarus!

(I realize there are only 11 owls in this picture but one was in the box already before I realized I needed a photo! I have a lot on my mind lately guys.)

So once they were on their way to Toronto, I took about 5 minutes to cut some jack-o-lantern parts to pin to my orange dress. Instant pumpkin costume? Perfect.

Maybe next Halloween I'll have time to do something a little more interesting but this did the trick!

After my big restock order filling month, the supply closet was in desperate need of replenishing so I made sure to take care of that before a bit of a crafternoon of cutting parts!

After supplies were replenished, I took some time to work on display pieces for the show booth! At the risk of ruining some sort of surprise, my plan is to essentially cover my booth in pom poms so a plan needed to be made!

Nothing like a few extra lofty goals to add to the show prep final stretch! Luckily I've had a bit of a head start so I think it might be doable! We'll see anyway! Eventually anyway! There's still almost a whole month left. So that's good. I can do it. Right? You're right, totally doable. 

Luckily I have my wonderful mom and friends to help out a bit! The week ended with a great crafternoon with my crafty friend Lisa of Nerdbiskit who kept me company over a pot of tea and snacks and helped out with some little cutting jobs here and there. Best help ever! I could get really sappy about it but I'll spare you (this time)! There's a lot of happy work put in to Needlings and that makes me very happy. Oops, sap. 

Lots and lots of little Owlings are in the works this week so I better get back to sewing! I'll see you guys for this week's recap next week! Happy November!
