Softer Side of Selling Sue's Stuff
Truth be known, there is no softer side in selling one's collected treasures.  It is HARD!  Especially when some of the stuff is sentimental and or things you made.  For instance the quilted pillow shams in the lower left picture.  My sweet three year old g...

Oh My Moon and Stars...It's Back to ABA...To Stay!

BAGS and BOHO...BOOTH Hot SEPT Sellers
As predicted...It was TOO HOT for Knitted Neck Warmers, Crocheted Shawls and Sweaters!  Afterall, we are in the 3rd Season of the year here in Texas...that'd be 'STILL SUMMER'.  As much as I'd like to say it is FALL...it's not!!!    No worries...I will be w...

Neck Jewels With A View
I'm one to never miss a Photo Opportunity and a 'TwoFer' marketing display!  Yes, it was one of those 'Eureka Moments' as well as a shortage of display space that had me combing 'Around Your Neck' stuff.  And the bonus...the surprise view!  I do love digita...

Starting September w/ 'Made In Texas' Stuff
Of course this stuff is made in Texas!  Who else but a Texan spends the August Dog Days of Summer covered up in YARN?  What sane person knits at the speed of light to make 'Neck Warmers' edged in FUR with the AC on Hi-Freeze?  Yeah...it's ME...OverDoneSue! ...

I LOVE THIS YARN!
I do love THIS yarn...especially for a new accessory design I'm working on that a softer yarn seems to work better...best!  Although it is a 4ply acrylic yarn, it  feels, knits and crochets more like a merino-bamboo blend...with better body.  As you can pro...
