Time Flies......and Deadlines Lurk!!

Oh my oooooh my........where do my days and nights go??!!! Summer has gone (well, according to the calendar and the weather reporter), Fall has arrived in some areas, football is well underway, and the NBA is holding training camp with their season just around the corner. Fall means the rush to build inventory for the one show I do each year. September is a wild month in our household since there are a zillion birthdays.....mine, Mike's, daughter's, daughter-in-law's, and granddaughter Sadie's. Whew!!

I have managed to publish a few more patterns, which can be found on Patternmart as instant downloads, and the other pattern sites you see in the left sidebar.

I am proud to announce that I have more work published in the second issue of PRIMS magazine, which you may be able to find on your local newstands any day now!! Be on the lookout for it!! This is a GRAND publication from Stampington and Company. You can follow the link above to order by mail, too!!

Hope this finds everyone well, enjoy the season, and the busiest time of year for many of us!! Prim Blessings, Trudy

I would be the first to admit that I am not a good administrative assistant type person.....and much prefer the hands on creating as opposed to the "office" work or writing up pattern instructions and getting them listed!! I am forever complaining to my friends about how I do not like the computer work!! I'd rather have my hands in the grunge mix and paint, than on the computer keyboard.

But.....I forced myself to finish writing up two patterns today, and have them listed on Etsy and Patternmart, with the other pattern sites to get them soon!! Like I work and I are NOT best of friends!! hehheeeee!!! Two down.....many new ones to go!! I hope you will stop by and take a peek at the new designs for Itty Bitty Bat Ornie and the Primitive Witch Ornie!!! Prim Blessings, Trudy

Colorado Fences

I have always had a great fondness for fences!! I see them as works of art, although I am certain they were built as functional systems for keeping something in or something out!! I love fences of all kinds, and especially love the old wooden country fences and rock fences. Today I am sharing some pictures of fences taken during a summer outing or two! Enjoy!!

Gosh.....where did August go??? Where is this year going???? Part of the problem with my absence has been my being way more busy than need be, having way tooooo much fun, and running around the countryside too much!!

We spent a few days in Sante Fe, a long weekend in Crested Butte, CO enjoying a bluegrass festival, a long weekend attending the Rocky Grass Festival in Lyons, CO (an annual event for us), and then I spent nearly a couple weeks down in Austin, TX....and now it's September birthday!! Whew!! I have my one show that I do each year coming up in early October, for which I am working hard to prepare for, also. WAY BUSY!!!

I have scads of pictures of various summer outings, lots of wildflowers, great rivers, fences, old buildings and such, and perhaps I will make some time to post those. In the are some pics of the Austin grandchildren. Madison is already 4 1/2, as she proudly tells everyone. Mackenzie is into the terrible two behavior, as she approaches her 2nd birthday in early November. And Liam is already 4 months old!!! Seems like he was born last week!!
