Okay, so I have these 2 shops and I'm sewing like a mad fool, we had trick or treat, the hot water heater blew out and flooded the cellar-kids thought no baths for 2 days was pretty cool, our chimney tiles cracked, so no's been cold and I can't dry out the cellar, but it's getting fixed TODAY! and a switch went on the stove and a burner wouldn't shut off, so I had to flip the breaker and run up and down the stairs every time I wanted to use the stove or oven. The good news? extra trips up and down the stairs are great for the butt and it really make me think before cooking!

I am also a member of the New England Street Team, New Hampshire Street Team, Etsymom Street Team, Etsyskids Street Team, Lucky Thirteen Street Team and just joined Desiging Swanky Moms Street Team on etsy. Not sure how I am going to keep up with all of this, but I think once the house gets back together and I can get organized and have everything put away once and for all.......yeah, I know. Not going to happen. It's a good dream, though~if anyone has any great time management suggestions, or organizational tips, please feel free to post them in the comments.

New Shop!!

Okay, I must be crazy...I have opened a second etsy shop, which features little boys clothes. Right now I have flannel lounging pants, a fleece jacket, fleece pants and a fleece beret. More hats, jackets, pants and vests to come. I am learning how to do zippers....not easy, but I'm figuring it out. Fleece is a little tricky, but I have a pretty good handle on it.

Pandys is still going strong. I am making new things and trying to have something new to list in each shop daily. Not making that goal, but at least 2 new things a week is what I'm shooting for.

I also have a craft fair coming up in November and need to get some inventory ready for that. Did I mention I also have the 2 wonderful helpers, a house and sleep? Not sure how it all fits in a day, but somehow I my tagline for Pandy's says, where creativity and chaos come together!!!

Blue Ribbons Abound

I entered a quilted tote bag, lap quilt and small table quilt in the Deerfield Fair and got blue ribbons on all three! The kids also entered crayon drawings that they did and they each entered a painted pumpkin face....and got blues (but the placement of the pictures was such that I could only get glare when I tried to take pictures of the drawings and the pumpkings were behind wire mesh....)

Here are the pictures of my quilted items.
