Lots of sewing...

Cuffs up close.....
I've been busy preparing for Artfest. Making lots of things to sell at vendor night like these cuffs and owls and rabbits. Also I have kits to prepare for my students that include some samples of things we will be making and materials for fiber charms and necklaces, bracelets and rings.

Saturday Colleen, Sukey and I took a little art field trip to Cambria for the 10th anniversary of "Birds of a Feather" and see if we could purchase any of Julie Whitmore's wonderful pottery.
Alas, every piece was snatched up before we got there! We still had fun, bought a few things and had a great lunch at Blue Indigo and stopped in at the Cotton Ball in Morro Bay.

Sunday I took myself( boys weren't interested) to see "Alice in Wonderland" and loved it! Highly recommended if you like Tim Burton's work. Great mushrooms at the beginning of the film...so creative!
A little bunch of bunnies awaiting noses, mouths and a pom pom tail....
And a second batch of cashmere rabbits-stuffed and ready for faces.

I really am facinated by your cuffs, each looks like a piece of artwork in itself. The bunnies are adorable as well. Wish I could attend the event!

beautiful stitching on your cuffs. Love the softness of them with a hit of color now and then.

Cute cashmere bunnies. They hardly need noses. I bet they'll sell well this time of year. :-)

The cuffs are fabulous! I just bought
a poster of the Alice in Wonderland
movie to frame. I love Tim Burton and Nightmare Before Christmas.( My oldest son did a musical in middle school and played the pumpkin king and he sang! I was so touched.)
The little bunnies are going to be adorable! Your work always brings me
a smile!

I love your cuffs! Would you be interested in doing a swap with me? (I made beaded cuffs).
Wish I could attend the event too!

PS I meant to say I ' make' beaded cuffs (and that I am a friend of Jacky who makes owls).
