Decisions

It's October already, wow! And busy holiday season is lurking just around the corner too... 83 days only! After quite hectic past seasons I made a decision this January already to be try to be in time for once in my life, and my goal is to have a slower December. So October 2nd seems like a great day to start, except... It's a beautiful sunny (yet crisp) day here, so showing the actual C-stockings seemed... a bit much, so I opted for stocking-fillers instead:


Happy, happy pouches with birdies...


My beloved stripes (and not)


Cats, foxes, hedgehogs and a happy squirrel... All these happy pouches ready to be put into those stockings in my shop now -20% here 


for a few days! I am officially announcing Holiday Season 2013 opened! Hooray!

Happy Wednesday!

Yours,
Mia

P.S. So many things have happened over the past a few weeks, I will be back with news soon!

Hello lovely Mia, Yes, "C" is coming and it's time to prepare. This may be hard for me this year, I'm sooo behind AND we have a son getting married December 7th in Pennsylvania so we will be gone a week after Thanksgiving. Yikes!!! But I'll do my best cause I LOVE "C"!!!!

Hi Mia! What a beautiful bucket of pouches! I try to think Christmas but it's difficult when it has been still hot. Now the weather may change to cooler. Hurray for you to be in time for the Christmas season! Happy autumn!
You said you don't know patchwork but I saw your pouch at Jane's!

Hi Mia, thanks for your lovely post!
So beautiful your handmade goods, I liked best that have happy animals in them. I loved the paired birds, I don't know why but when I saw them, something happened in my heart...
Great week!

Mia said...

I am soooooo sorry, Vivienne,

I know it's way too early for you! But as you said, let's enjoy the colors, it's all we got here too - gray gray gray again!

Happy October!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Hello sweet Robin,

Please take your time, this year's C will be both special and different for you... Lovely, lovely news those wedding news!

Have a lovely autumn!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Hello Teje,

I know, when it's summery, sunny and beautiful outside, C is the last thing in your mind, but when it's gray and dark like here...it comes quite naturally! Take your time, dear friend, there's really plenty of time!

Have a lovely day!

Yours,
Mia

P.S. I really do not do patchwork, I just fake it with sewing little things together :) YOU do patchwork, dear!!!

Mia said...

Hello Anne,

I know it's pretty early, but I am trying to get things done slowly and avoid the big rush this year (we'll see how that goes)... Thank you so much for the sunshine, we really need it here, it pours down here again...an another gray morning!

Have a lovely start for October!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Hello Lucia,

Thank you! I love making all things animal-inspired, cats, birds, foxes... and paired with colors they usually make people smile :) - and then my work is done!

Have a lovely first week of October!

Yours,
Mia

Helen Philipps said...

Hello Mia I am loving all these bright and beautiful pouches, with their sweet designs and cheerful colours! It's good to start your festive making in plenty of time.......sometimes I make 'c' things for magazines in midsummer :)
Wishing you a happy October with lots of sunny crafty days!

Megumi said...

Hello Mia,
Lovely pouches! They all bring smiles to everyone.
I can not believe it's October already and yes, C is coming! I have been enjoying your fall items lately. I am looking forward to see C items.
Have a great month.

Jane said...

Hi Mia...how exciting to see your holiday season makes...so bright and cheerful. I am sure they will be found in lots of lucky Christmas stockings ;0) x

Mia said...

Hello Helen,

Thank you! I admire you finding the c-spirit even in the summer :) I needed days get dark and gray before even thinking about it... But it would be lovely to have a huge stock already... Slowly, slowly...

Have a wonderful new week soon!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Hello Megumi,

I can't believe it's October already - if the next weeks go as fast, C is here pretty soon :)

I wish you the most wonderful October too, may it be bright and sunny!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Hello Jane,

I have been reading your c-inspired posts (those beautiful cards) and I just thought it's time to get organized... What could be a better way to beat this gray&rainy autumn?!

Happy crafting and kisses to Billy!

Yours,
Mia

Lovely pouches Mia! I do hope your plans to be ahead continue, mine aren't doing so well, mainly due to a general a lack of sewing and a missing mojo. Hope all is well and you are still seeing some sunny October days. Bethx

What cute little pouches! I am a big fan of knitting, felting, and bags of all sorts, so I love them!

Hello Beth,

Thank you for your lovely message! I'm afraid I've neglected my little blog, and that's why my answer is somewhat late too... But starting fresh :) Happy New Year 2014!

Wishing you all the best for the new year, and we'll see here soon again!
