fall fox girl 2 with owl

She is made from a reclaimed knit sweater. The foxes I make from knits always look rounder and younger to me.

She has a toy owl and a bag to carry it in.

Report from San Francisco

I’m back and have been since mid-week. It takes a few days to recover and get back into the swing of things. It felt like a whirlwind trip- mostly work and a little fun times with wonderful creative people I have met though my online life. So good to see Sonya, Kathryn and Alice!

Here are some booth photos- they are taken with my phone, so sorry about the quality.

These are the all-around on first day.

I always rearrange the 2nd day, hoping it actually makes a difference.

Lots of things found new homes and lots came home too. I’ve listed the pieces that came home in the suitcases into my etsy shop. The shipped pieces (dogs and I don’t know what else!) should arrive by the middle of next week and then I’ll list them too.

It was so much fun to meet and talk to past and new customers, see how people interact with my work, see what catches the eye, what gets the comments. It is always worth getting away from the studio for a few days even if it is not my natural inclination.

In the Mimi news

I will be in San Francisco next weekend with all my wares- hope some of you can stop by for a visit!


And for anyone who plans way ahead, I will be in Chicago in September 6 and 7.

In other news, I revised my Tiny World pattern after all these years. Honestly, it’s been on my to-do list for at LEAST a year! It now includes the pattern for 2 little houses- one upright as shown in the photos, the other is a cottage style. If you bought the pattern in the last year and you’d like a refreshed pattern, send me something that shows when you bought it and I will send you a new pdf copy. mimik@pobox.com

Little Thing magazine

I am absolutely thrilled by my profile in Little Thing, a Chinese lifestyle and fashion magazine. I just received a copy and I’m blown away. Look at this!


It is a calendar for 2014!

The theme of this issue is Grandma Style- too funny.


Here are my pages and as usual, I have no idea what it says. Hopefully something insightful and witty. Notice my neighbor- Jenny Hart. Good company, eh?



And here is the index if you want to see what else is in this beautiful publication-


If you are interested in getting a copy, they have a facebook page for international sales here. They also have an instagram feed with loads of beautiful pics including this amazing little video of the pop-up in the magazine. Here is a link to Google image search which has lots of pages and gives a great idea of the look of the magazine. I am putting the article pictures into my Flickr stream. You can look at them in a large size if you want to.
