Time for the Crow again, almost

It's almost time for the changeover for The Chocolate Crow Trader again, on the 15th. Feels like I've only just put up my items for last month! :) I've only done one item for this month, but have also donated for the free pattern for the month.

This is my main item, and with the theme being Thanksgiving & Harvest, as well as general items, I've put together some fruit and vegies in a very simple prim hessian horn shape, for a Cornucopia. Just for good measure I also made a funny little turkey to put with it. Cute little guy really. :)

This is a pic of my free pattern. Very easy and simple, but I think it looks good.

Joolz has put up this really sweet little blue bear that she has made to look vintage and well used, and Clare has made a great doll called Mrs Heart with her prim little sheep. Very nice, girls.

I haven't done any mixed media for a little while, but hope to remedy that this week. But not until I've finished the item I'm making for a swap that a few of us on Choccie Crow are doing amongst ourselves. I'm supposed to mail it off on the 15th and I'm not even half way through yet!!! eeek!!! Can't wait to get mine. As much as I like to give things, I also love to receive things too! Kid at heart really. lol.
I've also been quite busy getting everything done that needed to be done for my new online blog store that I opened up last week. So I'd better get cracking!

I also want to thank all those lovely people out there who visited my studio tour during the Quilting Arts Virtual Open Studio Tour. Such an uplift seeing those wonderful comments from you all. I sent e mails to or left a comment on the respective blogs, for those who did leave comments for me and apologise profusely if I missed anyone. It was a lot of fun with many amazing studios to look at. I still haven't finished all of them and hope to get back to see the rest.

  7. Hi Pam....well it would be me that is sending to you for the Choc Crow swap and guess what, it's all finished. I did stick to the rules but it's probably not what you are it will be a surprise.
    Your blog store looks great, we have been thinking of doing the same thing. Someone (namely me) just needs to get moving with it.

  8. Cathy: Thanks Cathy. Think I liked yours better! ;-) x

    Agneta: Hi there. Nice to see someone visiting from Sweden! Thanks for your sweet comment too. Looked at your blog. It's lovely. Your home is just beautiful, and I love the things you had in your ex-shop. Just the sort of things I love.

    Christina: Yes knew it was you sending to me! Can't wait to see it!!! Love surprises. :-) I haven't finished mine yet. You've done very well.
    Thanks about the store. Good luck with yours.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment. I read every one of them, and will either respond with a return email or leave a comment here or at your blog, if you have one.
