I did think I was part of the Octoberfest hop, but then my name wasn't on that list...soooo maybe that's where the mix-up happened...and maybe the tree that landed on Rita's house...which made her have to move house...I think we can cut her some slack.
I do have some things to share, not really related, but fall inspired. My mother is a quilter, she pulls out and sets up a free standing quilting frame in her living room at the first sign of cold weather. This year she decided to make all 9 of her grandkids a quilt...by hand. She lost her leather thimble, and I just happened to have some leather scraps sitting around from my failed attempt this summer to make leather sandals with sea glass,..that's a whole 'nuther post.
Three design fails later and...voila!
I called my mother and told her I was a genius...I just hope it fits, lol, I measured my own thumb, not hers, lol.
Also, this happened today....
Fifty standing earring card displays...only took me two attempts to get this one right after seeing a similar one on Pinterest this afternoon...too bad the Holiday Baazar I was hoping to sell the nearly one hundred pairs of earrings I've been working on since July is taking place a month earlier than usual and I can't attend because I was already scheduled to work :(
Fifty pairs of earrings ready to go...just in case.
