PONCHO UPDATE

This poncho is a special order from my niece for her Granddaughter. I cannot believe my nieces are Grandmothers. Wow, where did the time go?
Sonja asked if I was still making ponchos, and the answer is oh yes. This one I sold this morning.

This is the latest adult poncho I made, it is sage green.
I sent this picture to Heidi and she said, "Mother, what do you have on TV" sorry, it was a commercial. I edited the picture, but guess I didn't save it. My sons said I needed some team bears and some for boys, so I now have 27 bears finished.
I decided to make more hats too.
Some of the bears close up. People are asking to buy some so I might need more before October. I will see.

This one is a childs size with butterfly buttons. Sorry if I am boring you with ponchos. LOL

Your house is 'Ponchoville'...lol. You can make these in your sleep by now. I will be glad when this craft show is done so you can start stitching snowpeople and little kids. :-)

Love and hugs ~

I think the craftshow will make a huge profit this year.
The bears, hats, poncho, they will be gone in notime. They all are so cute, and make nice presents.

I love your ponchos, hats and bears. Everything is so cute. I like the buttons on the ponchos, nice touch and much easier to wear I would think.

Poncho's, poncho's, poncho's everywhere....they are all beautiful, and those bears are adorable. I can hardly wait for the weather to get cooler so I can wear might. I am also praying for a good report for you this Thursday.

Hugs,

Hi Aunt Nancy,
Love the poncho you made for Hannah! They are all beautiful!
Love the hats too! You are going to have a great craft show!
I can't believe your nieces are old enough to be Grandmas either!
Especially 10 grandchildren!
Time flys when you are having fun! :) Can't wait to see Kimmy's poncho!
Love,
PJ

HIIIII!!!! I wanted to stop by your blog since I haven't been to anyone's blog in ages. Your poncho's are wonderful Gramma! Too bad I won't need any here! Zoe says she loves you very very much and she asks me everyday when we can come visit. I'm going to try to make it home either thanksgiving or christmas. I will let you know. Love you so much!

Nancy,
Singlehandedly, you have not only managed to revive the old tradition of ponchos but also given them a very modern and appealing image. i love the beautiful designs and colours and, kitting out little bears in them too has only added to their charm. The hats are gorgeous too. When are you opening up that shopping outlet :>)
Warm hugs Angela
