Poinsettia Brooch

Just finished this beautiful Poinsettia brooch.  Too late for Christmas but ready for next December!  I purchased this kit a couple years ago at the Beadcats sale in Wilsonville, OR.  Designed by Virginia Blakelock, this flat circular herringbone project has well written instructions and is a very fun and rewarding little piece to stitch!

More Lovely Lavender!

Once again, this Summer, we will be setting up shop at the 2009 Lavender Festival in Sequim, Wa. Come see us on the gorgeous Sunshine Herb & Lavender Farm, proudly presented by Steve and Carmen Ragsdale.  Their farm is by far the BEST one on the tour!!  A definite must see!  The dates for this year’s festival will be July 17-19, 2009.  The farm is located at 274154 Hwy 101 in Sequim, Wa. 98382.  For more information on the festival or farm please visit these sites: www.lavenderfestival.com or www.sunshinelavender.com.  I have many new pieces…  from ‘jeans & t-shirt casual’ to downright ‘Bling-a-Bling Bling’!  I look forward to meeting you and visiting with those of you I’ve met before!

All-Ireland Cultural Society's 70th Anniversary 68th St. Patrick's Day Celebration

I would like to thank my friend, Lisa McAuliffe, for offering me the opportunity to share a booth with her at the All-Ireland Cultural Society’s 68th St. Patrick’s Day Celebration! www.oregonirishclub.org It is a fantastic event, held every year, most appropriately, on the 17th of March!  So many friendly, happy people, drinking, dancing and enjoying good food and each other’s company! Being Irish is the BEST!!  My mom and I had a great time talking to people and listening to live Celtic music.  Not to mention… the Irish dancers were outstanding!!

Even though I learned of the event only two weeks prior and I wasn’t stocked with many Celtic, or even, green pieces, we still managed to sell some jewelry.  Next year, though, I will be much better prepared.  Come join us!  Erin Go Bragh!!
