Visions of Baked Goods

We are in full holiday spirit at Bumbershoot Designs and Bumbershoot Supplies and at our home.
I'm shipping everything from Bumbershoot Designs priority mail to US customers until Dec 21, so you can receive your purchases by Christmas. 
A big thank you to all my customers, and my best wishes for a happy and joyous 2010!
At home, I’ve been working on our annual holiday goody tins, thirty five of them.

I love being able to share the Christmas spirit with my friends, familly and neighbors, in this way.
I also love the yummy treats!!!

faith, trust and a little bit of pixie dust

You may recall that our son Eric is performing in Seattle Children's Theatre's production of Peter Pan.  On Thanksgiving weekend, while he was singing, dancing, flying and fighting pirates, all with teddy bear in tow, I was working on a quilt square for a fundraising quilt for SCT.  There were requirements in terms of size, fabric, and the basic need for a two dimensional product that could go on a bed, which I'm sure makes sense to those of you who are quilters, but for an art quilter/mixed media person like myself, was a real challenge. I have an art supply shop for a reason...

There are many layers of meaning for me in this quilt square, but I'll explain one, since everyone except Eric has asked "What is the 2 for?"   It's the second star on the right....
