Little Birds in a Row

I have been working on birds this last week. This is the first time I have done several at once. The legs end up being the most tedious and messiest part so of course I saved it for last. So here are my birds lined up in a row waiting for their legs. They look a little sad:(
Much better, don't you think?

Craft Fairs

A little over a week ago, my daughter Kate and I had our first craft fair experience. We were part of a small fair at the Wiggins Library in Stratham, NH. We had a great time together. I love that my teenage daughter enjoyed sitting at a craft fair all day with me and is looking forward to our next experience this Saturday at the 'Not Your Grandma's Craft Fair' in Manchester. It was a great experience to meet other local crafters and to sell some of my things to appreciative shoppers.

Frost-nooo, SNOW on the Pumpkin!

Don't I wish that I had taken a picture of my pumpkin all covered in snow but no I was huddled inside my dark and cold home feeling humbled at how physically and emotionally dependent I am on electricity. I hate to admit that I did a lot of pouting as I tried to work in the dark. So this weekend was a first for me, a California girl, to see snow on green grass and autumn trees.
