Shows, sickness, and holidays have a way of changing routines. It has been way too long since the last post we made back in October. We are now into our long and deep winter. Days are much shorter. The snow that is on the ground now will be with us until the thaw sometime in April. Or May. It is so dark in the morning we rarely get up before 6 am. Time to hibernate? Nah, not us. These are the days that bring us new special orders. Hanukkah (soon!) and then Christmas.... it is always a busy time for us. Richard is building a client a quilt with a new design that we haven't used in a quilt before. We think this should be a real beauty. Pamela is in charge of those special orders and will then begin working on ideas for the 2016 line. It is a very satisfying time.
When she isn't weaving you will find her in the kitchen cooking or baking. Yesterday she made hot fudge sauce for Richard and finally tried her hand at making caramel sauce from scratch for the first time. Success!
Today she made pizza dough and "kitchen sink brownies".
And in case you want to get a sense of what our booth looks like at shows we are posting this one with Pamela in it from the American Craft Council show in Baltimore.
