~ Fabricating ~

Happiest November 
~ Friends & Folk ~

I love October very much...sad to see it go ~
but, November is another wonderful month...full of coziness & creativity!
{and some really good comfort food, too}

I have been busily holed-up in my sewing room these past few days/nights 
~ since returning home from up North ~

getting my fabrics ready to be made into wonderful sew-y related things 
that I will be bringing with me to the 
 November 11th in Penninsula, OH

always choosing just the 'right' colors and patterns are much fun for me ~
just look at these beautiful reproductions from the 1800's!

I'm making these little covered box ornaments... 
how sweet for your feather tree ~

inside holds a surprise: 
a pincushion in a coordinating fabric ~ to hold those precious pins & needles.

How will you spend your first day of November?
you know how I'll be spending mine...
Blessings from the Farm
