The hustle and bustle of the holiday season has begun! We had a wonderful time at the Waldorf school fair this past weekend. I always feel like the holidays have begun with this event. The sun came out and gave us an amazing day. I bought a sweet little frame loom for the boys to use alongside my Archie Brennan designed copper loom. They are still eating up all the new tools and techniques I’m bringing home. We are working on a family tapestry with everyone contributing a few passes of the weft.
Things are still super busy but instead of making for shows, as I normally would be at this time of year, I am working on final projects. A shibori dress, a small tapestry weaving and a carpet design are filling my thoughts and busying my hands these days. I’m glad I have had the experience of pulling together handmade goods for sale and holiday magic for family simultaneously. I think it helped prepare me for this.
You can find recycled wool stockings, wooden snowmen kits and felt ornament kits at Room6. Megan has done a fantastic job curating her shop and it’s so full of wonderful gift ideas. If you haven’t been you really should!
I am also super excited to be working with Erin at Collage Collage on some DIY stocking kits. They come with all you need to design and make your own recycled felt stockings. If you need a little help, Collage Collage is running a stocking workshop with the kits on December 5 that looks super fun! Check out their line up of workshops here.
Now to breathe and get back to making!
