Rainy Days

Hello friends!

I have been enjoying the Fall weather here in Tennessee. The trees have finally started to turn beautiful shades of orange, red, and gold.  I can turn off the air conditioning and raise a few windows which I love to do.   The football season so far for the TN Vols has been a little crazy for us fans but we still are hanging in and are hopeful. 



News in the Shop

The holiday season is coming soon and I am gearing up for it.  Lots of new things already in the shop and I am organizing for upcoming holiday shows. 

The rusty ornaments are in the shop now and you can choose from a heart, cross, or a star. They all can be customized with words and can be silver or rust finish. You decide:) 
I love them and think they will make great gifts this Christmas!

Fall is Coming!

Are you ready for Fall?  I know I am. I am loving the cooler days and nights.  Fall also means it is football time in Tennessee and the orange is out on Saturdays.  So whichever team you root for on the weekends, you probably enjoy Fall.  Fall also means pumpkin spice lattes, yellow leaves falling and who doesn't need a cuff to wear with those jeans!






Shop News:

I have thought about bringing  back a few scarfs in the shop but I am not sure if that is going to be my focus going forward this season.  I really love the cuffs and want you guys to love them too.  Tell me what you would like to see as far as colors.  I am thinking about multiple color cuffs (pinks,reds, and greens)   Feel free to give me suggestions.  I am considering the 2 inch cuff not as popular as well. It
seems to me the majority of ya'll like the 1.5 inch wide better.  These are just a few ideas I am throwing around in the business. 
Thanks friends for supporting my shop and sharing your cuffs with others.  I am looking for a few Brand Reps to advertise for the shop on Instagram so if you can make great stylish photos and can show my cuffs in the Best possible way, send me an email at tracypatterson72@yahoo.com 
or got to the Shop HERE


Have a Blessed day friends!

Nashville Weekend

Hello Friends!

I just realized my last post was published very late! Sorry I really thought I had hit the publish button a week ago but turns out I did not.  Guess the saying better late than never is right.  I have to let you guys know about my trip to Nashville this weekend. It was amazing and so much fun. My daughter and I traveled to Nashville which is about 2.5 hours away.  We both had plans of shopping. I visited CraftSouth and bought some beautiful fabric and yarn. The yarn is a naturally dyed sport weight merino.  I love it and hope to knit it into a large shawl for the winter.  I will share the pattern when I start it. 
The shop is a beautiful mash up of needlework, fabrics and knitting/crochet.  There were too many fabrics to choose just one but with my budget at hand I chose just one for now.  The shop did feature Alabama Chanin designs and they carry her organic knit fabrics. There is a list of classes they offer on their website. '

 




    Our next stop was to the Super Summer Knitogether Open Market at Scarritt Bennett.  The market had so many fiber arts vendors selling anything from handmade soaps, yarn, roving, and fleeces.  I managed to get some yarn for a future sweater which I am excited to start soon! Winter is coming...LOL.   

   The last stop of the day was to the used book store which my daughter loves to read so she found a new series to read.  We had a long day of traveling together but the best part of the trip is the memories we make together.  We talk and laugh in the car.  Oh, we even bought Starbucks coffee in this summer heat!  It was delicious.  


 
Have a Blessed Week
Tracy
