Of skirts and a poncho

Yet another sewing update! Skirts have been on the cutting table this week and here is a peek at a few of the ones that will go to holiday craft fairs with me at the end of this month.

Iv also produced a sassy poncho that I think has me taken with poncho sewing as well. They look so sweet on little people!

Getting Cozy

My coffee kept getting cold.
So I made it a cozy

using this pattern(mostly) and some gray and orange scrap yarn knit together.

My french press feels happier already.
