More Show Production...

Brynwood Kirby Crossbody Bags
I'm getting there. I have seven Kirby crossbody bags completed so far, with more prepared for cutting and sewing today. They're coming along nicely.

Handsome came home yesterday, and I was so relieved that "tired" overtook me. I didn't sew a single thing. I spent time with him, and didn't feel a single ounce of guilt.
Handsome's brother flew in from Wyoming to stay with us until Saturday morning, and we're so happy to have him here. He'll be hanging out with my recuperating husband, so I'll be able to focus on preparing for the weekend show. As I still have so much to do, this is much appreciated. I'll have more finished pieces to share tomorrow. You will come back, won't you?

Tuesdays With Tag - Our First 2018 Winter Snowfall...

Brynwood's Taggart • First Snowfall Winter 2018

Hi, Everybody!

Guess what? It SNOWED last week!!

Mom took us outside with her when she went to shovel snow and fill bird feeders. Man, did we have fun, too. I snuffled everywhere, and ran through the white stuff. It was snowin' and blowin' while we were outside.

I wasn't the only one, either. Just look at that goofy Black Dog! She was runnin' from down in the front yard, all the way around the barns, and up the hill. To tell the truth, I just stood and watched her. I think she was tryin' to corgi, too. I mean, look at her ears. They're straight up in the air!

Mom finally got her to sit still so she could take a picture of Boo for Dad to see. Bella has white chinny, chin, chin hairs, but I think there's more snow here, than actual gray, um...white fur. Some of the white stuff is stuck to her, but the snow was still fallin', too, when Mom got this shot.

By the time all the snow was shoveled off the driveway and feeders were filled, the sun came out. Mom made us stop what we were doin' so she could take another "seasonal" picture of us. I was good and looked at the camera. Bella was gazin' off in the distance. I call it zonin'. Earth to Black Dog. Yooo hooo! Anyone home?

We think Dad's comin' home today, and we're pretty darned excited. We've been missin' him somethin' fierce...and I'm not even gonna tell you how Mom's been since he went to the hospital. We've really had to pick up the slack for Dad, and we're gettin' tired of tryin' to keep her occupied. 
Once he walks back in the door, Boo and I can go on break. Of course, we'll be hangin' around him a bunch, so he knows we're glad to have him home. We're crossin' our paws that today's the day. Pictures next week.
 I'll see you again in seven, 'til then...

Production Sewing...

Brynwood "Grab & Go Cork Clutches"

Handsome is still in the hospital, and I spend time with him every day. When I get back home, I make sure the dogs are settled, and then I head to the studio.

I've been assembling some of my Grab & Go Cork Clutches with the wrist straps. Once I have everything made, I'll assemble all the wrist and crossbody straps at once.

I'm planning to have about eighteen of this style for the show, so I'll cut and assemble more today or tomorrow. 
Once they're finished, I'll turn my attention to more of the Kirby Crossbody bags. I only have a half dozen of those in stock, and definitely need more. I want to use my new purple cork, as well as some of my Enviroleather™, which is a luscious, vegan alternative to the real thing. I have it in purple and a beautiful moss green. I'm going to pair it with cork for a really rich look.
We're crossing our fingers that Handsome will be home tomorrow. I'd like that a lot. It's just not the same without him here with us. But, in the meantime, I'll concentrate on getting a few more bags accomplished. I don't want to be sewing last minute, especially since he'll be back soon.
