seattle show

thank you seattle for a good show. it was warm up there last week so i came home with most of my coats and sold most of my dresses. we had some great food, happy hour at list. an amazing dinner at kabul with teresa from texture and kate and rachel from spincycle yarns. thank you guys for taking us! before heading home we had lunch at macrina bakery. i bought their cookbook the food was so good.
we got home to 100+ degree weather....not pleasant. i cannot wait to head to san francisco next.
if anyone in seattle realizes they should have bought a coat feel free to email me to see what i have.

by the way happy birthday nancy, i love you!

almost packed

getting ready for shows always seems to be a hurry up and wait process. i am in the waiting stage.
i am pretty much packed just a few things to finish up and a store order to get out. dogs have been walked, bird fed and has clean water. trying to decide if seattle will support me enough to buy one more suitcase and pay extra or if what i have is enough to sell.
while passing time i finished covering a gross of buttons for the maryanne coats(i do have a few odds and ends of these on sale in older colors on my etsy site).
sometimes i wish i could just keep all the buttons together as inspiration, they look so pretty but needless to say it would be hard to close the coat!

sewing and eating

or is it eating and sewing?! let's just talk about the sewing part since i might shame myself discussing the "stuff my face" part. i have been sorting my vintage fabric over the last year that i have collected for the last 10 years. this job requires me to cut the pieces first into pockets for the paula pocket, second into horses for the mobiles, then big and small birds for the mobiles and lastly with the little pieces circles for the covered buttons and good lucks. given i am in a hurry and wait mode for samples, production and individual orders i have been spending the time making good luck necklaces. it is also a good excuse to avoid house cleaning too. i now have several in stock so if anyone desires owning and wearing one i have them on sale if you contact me directly for $40
