Ladies Night Out and Tie Cuffs ...

Friday Night September 30th in Quincy? We'll be having a special night out on the town for the ladies. The businesses and specialty shops will all be open and available for shopping and give-aways. The bookstore will be hosting a book signing for local authors. The Plumas Arts Council will be hosting our friend Linda's show of her artwork - sculptures and whimsical masks. Live music. Coffee shops and cafe's. Wine bars and eateries.

The theme for the night will be the '70's. Some women will come formal. Some will be in jeans and t-shirts. After all the '70's was all about self-expression! I remember. I was there. And tonight? I'll be there in my little black dress. My black tights and my red pumps. And in honor of the evening? I made me a new bracelet to wear. It's designed from an old silk tie and a vintage button.

I'll try to get a pic of the entire fabric tomorrow before heading out. AND some shots of the other awesome ladies. Oh. And did I mention? The evening ends with a showing of Saturday Night Fever circa '77 at the downtown movie theatre. Now how awesomely fun is THAT!

Have a great weekend!

Trying Out the Gibson

I was talking with Molly - the Dellinger Girl and Boys - the other day and she was telling me about this hair-do she was wearing. She said it was called the Gibson. So, I, being me and being intrigued with a new 'do' for my hair, Googled it. And being too lazy to write the how-to myself? I found this tutorial for you at Franny's Long Hair to try.

I could probably 'do' your hair easier than my own. But, it worked. It's ok. I think.

From the front. 

And from the back.
Well. I tried. And tomorrow. I will try again.

I'll let you know ifn' it works.

Top Ten Reasons You Need a Betriska Sherpa

So here we go ... me in my Sherpa.
I designed mine and have since knit countless wool hats,
that others admire and want and are willing to pay me
to produce with my own two hands, some sticks and string.

I am observing my new
home going through the September change of seasons.
A little bit summer - a little bit autumn, the mornings are
a bit chilly and then the temps rise from the morning sun,
to draw back up to the clouds the moisture left from yesterday's rains.
Guests over for a cookout. The air turns
cool as the sun dips behind the high peaks of nearby mountains.

It's the beginning of sherpa season. And lacking in photo-skills
but brazen in desire to show you my latest two handknit sherpas,
I give you pictures. You can follow the links to Shop Betriska.


And you ask.
Why? What are the TOP TEN Reasons to own one of my sherpas?
They're listed on my Etsy!
