Thank goodness!

Over the river, and through the wood,
Now grandmother’s cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun!
Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

It's that special time of year where the holidays queue up to create chaos unless you are carefully pretending not to notice and go at your own pace! This can be very useful for people like me who have way too much on the plate to start with!

some lovely large play-silks in rainbow, ocean and sunset hues will appear for sale soon!
I know it's cheesy, but I thought a short list of thankful things may be fun to play with. I am going to provide lolly (Popsicle) sticks to scribble on and pop in a jar on our table this year, so we can randomly note those things we are truly thankful for. Little Gandalf recently underwent an appendectomy and few days after being home he conveyed his thanks to us for being healthy when we made him and that he was alive, his words not mine - I know. Life can be overwhelming unless you really take time to set aside that special family time, slow down for a moment and look around you; smell the air; hear a bird and touch something that enlivens your senses. Look no further, with Thanksgiving right around the corner you can sidle right up to this one and do all of the above, with the ones you love! Or just pretend to hibernate for the winter!

The OCS Winter Faire this year is coming soon, Dec 12th - 11am-4pm, and promises to be as magical as ever. I really do not have time to make all the lovelies I wish to, but nevertheless the dragonfly artisans will be there with bells on, ( yes really)! I would love to see some of you in person, so please stop by and say hello!!

Some recycled needle case can be found with felted animal fronts

an array of kits and whimsical fancies will be on display both at the faire and in the etsy shop

Wishing all the fiber-fans-waldorf-homeschool-gardeners out there a very lovely, healthy and happy holiday.
