My latest projects

I have been fairly crazed trying to get things ready for the big festival coming to our little town in October. Today was a pretty busy day at the shop, despite the rain, and I sold out of my Grubbied Coffee candles. So when I got home this evening I figured I better make up another batch before we reopen tomorrow. I made up about 12 votives and 8 pillar candles. I love making these candles! They make the house smell soooooo good! Don't they just look so prim?

While at the shop today, I finished making my Pumpkin Centerpiece that I have been working on. I don't know why but I have suddenly gotten swept into panic mode and have been making all sort of Fall goodies for the shop. What good is a Fall Festival without the shop just loaded in Fall goodies?
I also finished this small Fall stitchery late last night.
Well, I think I will get off here and maybe finish another project or two! Have a great
day!
