I had a fun opportunity to make my friend a tutu for the Cupid Undie’s Run at Fenway Park. I based it loosely on the tutu worn by Carrie in the opening credits of “Sex and the City.” This one is in red, pink, and white and is a shorter than the one in the show. I might make one for myself in neutral colors like Carrie’s. Then, I will have to find somewhere fun to wear it! Several a few of my running friends also want tutus for their upcoming races!
Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away. Here is a gallery of gift ideas from my Etsy store.
I have so many items planned for the holiday show in which I will be participating this year. This week, I am making six wristlet/clutches. Wallets, messenger bags, and lunch bags are also on the list. The show is at the Josiah Smith Barn and Tavern and is sponsored by the Weston (MA) Arts and Crafts Association. It is the only holiday show I do, and it was excellent last year. Hoping for another great season!

I am headed to Paris this summer for an anniversary trip with my husband. Having very fair skin and sunscreen sensitivity, I need to wear hats. I didn’t think a baseball hat would look stylish enough for Paris, and my big straw hat isn’t easily packable. Now, I have a larger than average head and most hats I find in the stores don’t fit me. Those cute hats I saw at Athleta in the mall? Not for my big head!
The solution I hit on is to make my own hat. I just bought a vintage Vogue pattern, and some fabric. Full-speed ahead & wish me luck.
It was a germ-y, long, snowy, and cold winter here in New England. I am going to usher in spring by being part of Brookline (MA) Open Studios. I will be sharing the space at Abeille where I will be joined by many other excellent local artists. Last year, the weather was very nice, and we were able to set up outside on the sidewalk and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. I am hoping for another great weekend this April 26-28. That’s one of my bags in the top center of the postcard.
