sweet panda for petite purls/sew petite

Have you folks checked out the latest edition of Petite Purls yet? There are lots of fun, beautiful patterns in it (as always), and I am thrilled to announce that my tutorial for the sweet panda pictured here is in their Sew Petite feature. Many thanks again to Brandy and Allegra for including me in this!

There are lots of fun things still available at the shop. There are several sets of fingerpuppets and some penguin ornaments, as well as a bunch mini-critters. Just a reminder - last day I'm shipping before the holidays will be this Friday. Hope you're all having a lovely holiday season!

Shop update tonight at 8PM EST! There will be elephants, lions, snails, oh my! I will be posting my leftover penguin ornaments, too. In case you don't snag one tonight, I am working on a second small batch to post this Friday afternoon, which is also when I will post the sets of fingerpuppets. Of the 106 fingerpuppets I made for Bazaar Bizarre, I have 36 left. I tried photographing all of those individually to post onto etsy, but you know, it was driving me nuts. So I'm just going to offer them as sets and include a discount in the price.

Also, those of you awaiting commissions from me, I am working on those and will have all of them ready by next Monday. Sorry for the delay, but prep for BazBiz has overshadowed just about everything here for the last three weeks. (Seriously, you should see the mountains of laundry I have yet to fold and put away. Yikes!) You will all be hearing from me in the next few days regarding your specific commission.

One last thing - the last date that I will ship will be Friday, December 18th. That is my absolute cutoff date. I want to ensure that your packages all get to you on time, and any date after that is pushing it. I don't want to take any chances with that. On top of that, due to health reasons, it may not be in my best interest to have to deal with the stress of the Post Office in the few days before Xmas. I trust you folks will understand.

Thanks again for all the love & support throughout the year! xoxo

our table @ BazBIz 2009

Bazaar Bizarre was awesome this year! Thanks to everyone who went and stopped by to say hello and all the lovely folks who bought a soto softie. And thanks to all the organizers, DJs, and volunteers who helped make this such a fun and wonderful event. You all rock! It was great seeing some familiar faces and checking out all the beautiful work by all the other vendors. Fun times, people!

Bazaar Bizarre is tomorrow, and I am so excited. I am working on all the final prep stuff today. I believe I have more than enough softies and fingerpuppets. I would have liked to have gotten a couple more bats sewn, but I would drive myself batty (hah) if I were to try to crank a few more out today, especially in light of all the other stuff there is to be done. I thought about printing bat patterns, but my printer is kinda crappy. I would feel bad selling patterns printed on that. So anyone interested in patterns, please feel free to drop by my pattern shop.

Just a reminder - we'll be at table #94, which is to the left of the entrance. We are not set up to take credit cards, but we do accept cash (of course) and personal checks. Also, we are offering a 15% discount off any purchase of 3 or more fingerpuppets. Hope to see you tomorrow!
