Just a Note


I had a craft show on Saturday.  One word says it all  "horrible."  In the past I did well for this show.  I didn't understand why I did badly this time.   Everybody else did o.k.  My friend Elisabeth did pretty well.  I sold 4 items just enough to cover the table fee.  Two bad shows in a row; I'm really beat!  Will it stop me from creating? Never!

Here is today card
Have a wonderful week a head!

Asian Artistry Birdy Note Cards


I wanted to update over the weekend craft show.  It was the worst show I had ever had.  Friday evening I sold 2 items, Saturday evening I sold a few small items and Sunday I sold one item worth $12.  On top of the table fee, we had to give 20% of our total sale.  Well it wasn't much since I didn't sell much.  It wasn't only me that didn't do good.  All the handmade vendors didn't do good.  But the reseller vendors they did pretty well.  So it seemed to me that Bryn Mawr community preferred  manufacture items over unique handmade crafts, different stroke for different folks for sure.

I haven't make a cards in a long time.  So last week I took out my favorite stamp set from Stampin' UP! and made these cards.

Again, if you are local, stop by Sun Vally High School craft show this Saturday, October 25th, from 9AM - 3PM.  There are many craft vendors including me.

Sprial Staircase Shawls and Fall Festival

Hello Blog Friends,

I just finished these two scarves/wraps/shawl recently. I started them in the Summer.  I used Red heart With Love yarn.  They are my favorite yarns; durable, affordable and easy to work with.

The blue one  is smaller and shorter (55") since I used a smaller needles.  The yarn color is called Deep Blue.

The second one is larger and longer (65").  The yarn color is called Autumn.  At first I didn't really care for this color but I tried on the shawl and oh it is very pretty.
  You can fine the pattern here.

For local friends, I will be here this weekend

Our Mother of Good Counsel Church (610) 525-0147

My next show will be at SunVally High School in Aston PA.  Will post detail next week.

Until next time

Oalet Shawl

Hello Bloggers,

Do you still remember me?  Holly molly, it was not my intention to abandon my blog for soooooooooooo long, almost 2 months!.   I was super busy this Summer but that is not a good enough excuse.  The reason was I lost interest in blogging.   I still made lots of stuffs though especially knitting and crocheting but I just didn't feel like taking pictures and uploading them.   Any way I hope this is just some kind  of stages that I am going through..

I always wanted to knit a shawl so here is my first one. It is for my niece.  It's called OaletShawl.  It's a free pattern on Ravelry.  Lace pattern intimidated me so this shawl was a perfect pattern for me.

To block the shawl I pinned it onto the squares foam mat then I spray warm water all over the shawl.  This technique of blocking allowed the shawl to try faster.  I didn't come up with the technique.  

Until next week
