Upcoming Green Grin Shows

I'll be participating in three craft shows this season: November 20th, Saturday, 10am-6pm SCRAP's Annual Holiday Bazaar 2915 NE MLK Blvd.(at Stanton), PDX Holiday Bazaar 2010 Poster November 28, Sunday, 11am-5pm GIVE Handmade Sale Left Bank Annex 101 N. Weidler, PDX

December 19th, Sunday, 11am-5pm Handmade NW's Formal Holiday Artisan's Fair The Acadian Ballroom 1829 NE Alberta St., PDX All of the shows are free of charge, and there will be live music and food available. Good times! I'm super excited to unveil my latest Green Grin-ness and get out & interact with the world. Sure, I have tons of cute, cuddly friends with me in the studio, but it's just not the same as smiling and laughing with real humans. I have the grooviest new business cards/labels, thanks to the lovely and talented Fran. We've more exciting projects in the works...stay tuned...
I'll have the largest collection of Mitts for Musing that I've ever had at one time! (they'll go fast!...)
Random cuteness, of course.
It's always hard to know when to stop creating and when to start packing everything up for the show...

More Cuteness

This morning I finished this Cutie.When I start making one of these crocheted creatures, I never know how they'll turn out. For this one, I made long, spindly legs, thinking it would look funny standing tall on skinny legs. But when I started to sew the pieces together, Cutie wanted to recline, instead.
Here's Sly Little Bro.
And shy Octopal.
I rewarded myself with a walk in the woods over accross the creek, exploring some new forest paths. The stroll was glorious, and I came home with some gourmet tidbits!

GrinKins Grow up

I just finished these two new off-shoots of the GrinKin clan. I used the same GrinKin head and legs, but I added a body with arms, and switched the horns for ears and wooly-felt hair. I also put in a little touch of white reflection to liven up the eyes...less scary that way.
With their long, flexible legs and arms, they are super fun too pose and play with; I couldn't resist shooting a few snapshots! Now to come up with names for them.... And since I'm sharing photos, here are a couple of pictures of some interesting rocks we found during our recent visit to central Oregon.
