WOW! A new year and I haven't been on my blog in awhile! Maybe a New Year's resolution.....
Very busy during the Christmas season with a couple of craft shows. Did well at both with my new dish towels and cloth napkins.

















Was also involved with making a bunch of presents for the nieces and nephews - chalkboards!

This piece was inspired by that wonderful cabbage leaf! Printed up this cloth just before harvesting the last of the cabbage from my veggie garden. Love the white against the deep red cloth. All this cloth was hand dyed.
