That Time of Year Again

It's almost Christmas, which means that Mom's hands have been busy making recycled sweater mittens and god knows what else. This is one of the most stressful times of the year for us, because neither of us know how to say no!

I haven't been quite so busy in Montana, but I did manage to make a hat that sold immediately back in Wisconsin.

I have been busy, however, playing around on Etsy. I've been making treasuries, and trying to get a little more exposure for our products. Which means I've also been trying to make product too! I have managed a few new scarves this fall, but not nearly as much as I would like.

One of my biggest Christmas presents this year was a sewing machine! I'm so excited, because it means I can do some of the things I've been wanting to ever since I left Wisconsin, where it was so easy to go down to the basement and use Mom's machine! As soon as I get in some squeakers I can finish up a few dog toys made from recycled jean material. I might even be able to help make some sweater mittens, but they might have to be stock for next winter, because I'm kind of slow at sewing!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all that other such!
