Designing patterns by hand in front of the wood burning stove + waking up to snow + antique shopping + sipping cocktails. Vermont Thanksgivings are the best, you guys!

Have a happy, cozy Thanksgiving, crafty pals!

I’ll be spending the day with family in beautiful snow-dusted Brattleboro, VT, far, far away from my computer, eating my weight in Tofurkey and mashed potatoes. But, before I abandon the screen entirely, I wanted to give you a sneak peek at the project that’s currently on my worktable. (Because, everyone needs a pixie hat, right?) I can’t wait to share it with you guys next week!
