More felt goods...

Here are a few of the new ribbons I made for Pile of Craft, they are a bit like merit badges. Each ribbon is made from 100% wool felt from Japan and has a tiny embroidered scene. I like to think of them as a special gift you give someone you love when you are most proud of them.

su su stockings

Here are my last two stockings from last season, I think they are quite a nice pair. I hope to make more this year. They can be personalized as well.

Pile of Craft

Annika and I so enjoyed Pile of Craft that we wish it could have gone on longer...even though it was quite hot. We did amazing! Thanks so much to everyone who came by. We enjoyed seeing and meeting each and every one of you and we hope you continue to follow us in our handmade pursuits.

Make sure to check back often to find out what other upcoming craft shows we are participating in. We hope to do Bazaart at the American Visionary Craft Museum, Holiday Heap, and maybe the MICA Art Market. I am also going to be selling with Rebe at the Renegade Craft Festival in both San Francisco (July 31-August 1) and Chicago (September 11th-12th) this year! I am so excited to keep busy.

If anyone missed an opportunity to get something they loved at Pile of Craft from either Annika or I, just send us an email and you are welcome to come by our studios to see more work or pick up that little something special you keep thinking about. You can email me at hilleryrebe@gmail.com.

In the Studio

Matthew is teaching himself how to make videos. He made this one of me. I think I'm always his subject due to proximity.

We also spent the last two weeks organizing and building new furniture for the studio. I have a lovely new sewing table now that is the perfect height for my sewing machine. We also built a huge bookshelf for the office. We have yet to decide how to paint or stain it. I never knew how visually unexciting office supplies were until they were sitting on a nice shelf. I'm so pleased that we finally have a place to hang our piece by Christine Herz.

Go go garden

Another picture of Matt's garden! I love visiting the garden because it is always in process. There are always new things growing and dying, different pests to watch out for and a never ending list of wonderful vegetables to plant next.

Garden times

New pictures of Matthew's garden and his delicious chioggia beets. We ate them last night and they were wonderful! I helped him pick weeds for six hours and it made my fingers hurt.
