It’s May!  Tea Party Time!!!

5 May


May is our annual Tea and Stitches Tea Party. This year we will be up cycling a Teacup and Saucer or Teaspoon into a Pincushion!  I just love useful sewing notions. I can’t wait to see what our Tea Party guests design.

Die Cut Appliqué Minion

20 Nov

  
Isn’t this little Minion Pincushion cute?  He is an example of me being derailed. Does that ever happen to you? Needless to say the project list is long. But sometimes you just have to stop and do something fun or silly. This Minion is my prototype 1. I am working out a method to create my Minions from my die cuts and of course felted wool. Special thanks to my friend Evie for her inspiration and her Farmers Wife block for display. Put Free Minion Pincushion in your search engine and patterns by others are sure to come up. Happy Stitching! 

Do you recycle? Here is a project for you!

29 Oct

So, do you recycle?  For several years now I have been addicted to working with felted wool in my quilting projects.  Without a Local Quilt Shop close enough to provide the wool I want and need for my projects I have a considerable stash of recycled wool and the occasional other fabric when it is too awesome to pass up.  That’s where this Pumpkin Cushion got its start.  I couldn’t resist a skirt made of a beautiful irridescent green taffeta with a black velvet jacquard print.  Unfortunately the photo doesn’t do this beautiful fabric justice.  Die cut with my favorite Sizzix dies.  I used the Big Shot Pro Die Cutting Machine, 6″ Circle Die, Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers Die Tattered Leaves, Medium Die Flower Layers w/ Leaf #2 and a 1″ x 3″ rectangle.
