Goorin Hats

On a recent trip to Portland with my friends, we stumbled into a hat shop called Goorin Bros. They had walls full of hats. It was so much fun to look at all of them and try them on. I had absolutely no intentions of purchasing a hat, but after trying this one on, I couldn’t resist! If you are in the Portland, OR area, you should definitely check it out!


My first show!

Wow! So much to catch up on! I really would like to start taking better care of my blog.  It really is a huge part of what I want to be doing and it’s a great tool to utilize while I can. There have been many, many crazy things going on right now, and among them was my very first Craft Show! ^_^

Here are a few of the highlights and downfalls. . . Highlight number one, it was my first one and I thought I was as prepared as I could be, aside from a lack of tables and displays.  Downfalls. . . I only sold two items, to a relative, which covered my booth cost, the soap that I bought from my neighboring booth, and I only made it out of the show with ten dollars in my pocket. Hey, at least I left with money, right? ^_^ So here are a few pictures to show, I hope you enjoy them.

Oh, by the way, if you are in Oregon, I will be at the Craft-In on 99W in Newberg selling my hand sewn items along with some hand dyed roving. Say hi, won’t you? ^_^


A blistery day in Oregon.

It’s a blistery day out.  I have the day off work.  I should be working on store samples, only I can’t muster up the energy.  It’s so dreary out, but even so on days like today, there are still beautiful things if we only take the time to look.  Matt took these pictures.  I’d like to share them with you and remind you to find beauty in the most dreary of things.



On the knitting front, I have just been working on catching up on some old projects.  I finished a pair of slippers that were supposed to be a Christmas gift. . . and I’m also working on a hat from my homespun.  Once I muster enough energy to actually get on with my day, I’ll try to post some of those.
