“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way--things I had no words for.”

Open for Business!

The ribbon has been cut and the doors are flung open...to my little Etsy shop, Mama Roux. I've already made one sale AND have been featured in another blog, The Student Knitter, by a gal that stumbled upon my shop while "window shopping". Very exciting! Along with my Little Totes I have also listed several fabulous pillow covers. Stop on by and make sure to check back often as I plan to list items as I create them. Currently in the works: handbags, quilts, scarves, dishtowels, pot holders and wall hangings...So much to look forward to!

Good Enough to Eat!

The sweat shop has been in full throttle, pumping out creations for the Mama Roux shop. I've pretty much locked myself in my sewing room and have refused to come out until I feel I have enough items for a respectable Grand Opening this Sunday, Jan. 31. I work well under pressure although I might get a little cranky at times (say it isn't so!)

Small Totes
Luscious colors, what fun I had !
It's true that fabric can make your mouth water!

I love to blog-surf. It's like site seeing from your couch! I can visit other parts of the world and see what people are up to in Portugal, Australia or England. Blog-land is where I get much of my inspiration, beautiful creations of others who share their passions, a little piece of their world. I thought I'd share a few of my favorite images. I hope they tickle your fancy as they did mine!

Just a Few Things...

Well, I made it through the Holidays! Whew! Now I need to get my tokhes in gear and start posting the items I have been making for the Grand Opening of my etsy shop. My target date is January 31.

Here are a few Cool Little Totes I completed recently.

I hope you all like them.

Belated Christmas gift from Big Daddy. Warm and cozy my feet will be!

Added bonus...they match my dog!

Went to the Renegade Craft Fair at Fort Mason, San Francisco.
Saw a lot...

learned a lot...

walked a lot.
A very inspiring event, indeed.
