Mr. Coffee and the Trunk

In preparation for my mini-trunk show tonight at Tumbleweed, which is part of Alberta Street's Fashion By Flashlight, I've hunkered down with a pot of coffee and my bead stash. I'm hoping to put together several more pieces for my first-ever in-store appearance. I'd love to meet any of you who may be in Portland. Stop if you can between 5 and 9.


I'm getting a few pieces ready for a sulu-design giveaway that's in the works, too. More on that to come next week. And speaking of giveaways, have you seen the giveaway extravaganza going on over at Crazy Mom Quilts? Holy cow. I don't think I've ever seen such a long comment list.

Well! I just got home today and I find that you're working at a boutique, one day away from the end of your original intent project, about to have a trunk show...sounds like you've been busy.

I hope you've chosen a yummy coffee-- and I hope you'll let those of us who aren't in Portland have a peek at what you create!

Hope you had a successful show. Wish I could have been there.

P.s. Those orange containers are lovely!

Again, wishing I were a Portland blog friend. I only recently learned what the word "hunker" means- move away from the place you were born + raised + a whole new vocabulary opens up to you- especially in The South.

Hope your show was a smashing success! Dropped by Crazy Mom Quilts and referred you in my comment. Good luck to both of us! What nice work she does!
