Kansas Barn Sale Update

Well as you all probably know by now after me talking about this for so long. I only have one more Saturday before the Kansas Barn Sale on Saturday, October 4, 2014 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Of course I wanted to share some of the things that I have been making the past two weeks.


Here’s the owl family. I have another baby owl in progress and can not wait to show you. There will be a total of 4 baby owls and each one will be one-of-a-kind.


These fingerless gloves are something new for me to make for my booth this year.


I just love making this pattern of Up and Downs Crochet Fingerless Gloves designed by Tamara Kelly at


What I love is that the pattern is free and it is very well written.


And I love how I can use all these really cool buttons on them. Hopefully the day of the barn sale it will be cold enough that people will want to pick up a pair of these. 😉


Here are some of the adult size stripey elf hats that I have made. I can’t wait to see if I can some how incorporate this cool wire shelf into my booth display.

DSC_0186Here are the tails and I almost forgot to mention, you can find the baby hat pattern on I hope everyone is having a good week and would love to hear what you have been up to.


  1. Good luck on the Barn Sale. I am going to try and make it up there again this year. It is so much fun. I just finished the Up and Downs hat pattern. It was so much fun to make. It’s good to see you posting again.

    • Hi Donna! Thanks so much for loving my posts and I am so glad you tried the Up and Downs Slouchy hat. It would be great to see you at the barn sale if you can make it. Love and Hugs, Tamara

  2. You’ve been very busy, Tamara! Love all the pieces you have created. I wish you oodles of success at the Barn Sale. You certainly deserve it!

    • Thanks so much Jeanne! I am looking forward to seeing all the people and love sharing my creations with them. Love and Hugs, Tamara

  3. You look ready. Hope you have a wonderful sale and sell out of everything then you can start preparing for barn sale 2015. Love you girl.

    • Love you too, Sue! Hope you have a wonderful day.

  4. Wow, you have been very busy. Love the owls, they are so cute, hugs, Mary

  5. You are TOTALLY and MAGNIFICENTLY ready !!!! Love the elf hat, thanks for sharing where you found the pattern.
    Your owls are too much. people will be queueing round the block for them ❤

    • Oh Jill you make me laugh! I don’t seem to ever think that I am quite ready no matter how many things I have made. But it will be what it is, and I am grateful that I am one of the chosen ones to be a vendor at the Kansas Barn Sale. Thanks so much for loving the elf hats and owls; they are some of my favorites. But the fingerless gloves are very close behind. Love you my friend and hope you have a wonderful day.

  6. Hi Tamara!
    I love your owl cushions and the BABY OWL!!
    I think I’ll be making myself a pair of those fingerless gloves. 🙂
    Hoping your weather will be cool enough on Oct. 4 for folks to buy yours, but not too cool for you to be able to “enjoy the weather”. 😉
    I’m sure there are people who, every October, “Look for Tamara’s table!!”
    It will be a fun day for you — and you will be ‘rolling in the dough’ at the end of the day. Hahaha!!
    Love ya, girlfriend!
    Hugs, Kat

    • Thanks so much Kat! I love reading your comments, you make me smile! Love you too, Tamara
