Two New Quilted Bags!!!!


I’ve been very busy this week and I’ve completed two very different quilted handbags.  One is a larger sized Turquoise and Dark Brown print.  Absolutely Stunning!

The other is a medium sized bag with Olivia the Pig doing exercises!  It’s very cute and would be suitable for a child or an adult fitness enthusiast.

Anyway, you be the judge.  Both of these bags will be for sale at the St. Agatha Holida Bazaar.  See the bazaar details listed under events.


“Vera” is here!


Yes, even though she’s a vampire, she’s a stunning beauty!  With her long red dress, her lilly-white skin, and her floor length hair, she is one sweet vampire.  She’s waiting for you to take her home with you.  WARNING!  Make sure she is safely tucked  and padlocked in her coffin (not included) before nightfall.  She cannot be trusted!

“Vera” will be available for sale at the St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar.  See events for details of the bazaar.

Pretty Fabric Gift Card Holders


Pretty Fabric Gift Card Holders

These little gems hold gift cards.  So instead of a tacky little envelope you can give the gift card in a bright little fabric container!  They are wahshable and dryable, so they are very “green”.  They are infinitely reusable, in fact, I encourage re-gifting with them.  Just pass them along next time you want to give someone a gift card!  I recently lowered the price to $2.oo apiece, so now they are a real “steal”.  They will be for sale at the upcoming St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar.  See details listed under events.




These cute little items are called Greensleeves.  I originally started making them for a coffee shop in my neighborhood, which has since closed, but I’ve also been selling them at bazaars and craft fairs for several years.  They are great for hot or cold drinks, and they are completely machine washable and dryable.  They come in a variety of patterns and colors.  At $3.00 apiece, they make a great stocking stuffer, or pair them with a coffee gift card for a great birthday present.  This photos shows just a few of the many different patterns available.  For sale at St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar.


Only One More Week Until The Bazaar!


 Mistletoe 1 Hi Everybody!  There’s only one more week until the St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar!  Please take some time from your busy life and come to see our display.  We will be there on Saturday, November 5th, from 9am until 4pm, and on Sunday, November 6th, from 9am until 1pm.  In addition to lots of arts and crafts, there is an amazing table full of home baked goods, and the cafe has some wonderful food choices all homemade by St. Agatha chefs.  Believe me, if you come, you will find something you like.  St. Agatha also has a Thrifty Cottage room in the bazaar that has a lot of gently used items for sale.  All proceeds from that area go to supporting the church and St. Agatha School. 

The address is 7959 SE 15th Avenue, P0rtland, Oregon.         Gingerbread

New Business Card


This is my new business card that my amazing daughter made for me.  She’s very talented!  Actually, All Dolled Up is the name we came up with when we first started our little business together when she was in the fourth grade.  Now she’s in college and we still do bazaars and craft fairs together!  It’s wonderful to have such a child!

She also has a blog where she shows off her own unique creations.   It’s Peculiar Crochet and Knitting at  You should check out.  She’s got some pretty cool stuff on there.
