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.

Mug Rugs

13 Jul

Have you jumped onto the Mug Rug train?  They are a fun, fast stitch and make perfect gifts.  And…oh by the way they are a great canvas for words of inspiration and look darling as a votive candle mat. Cut some wool out today and create!

    
   

Beach Memories

31 May

imagePlaying in my wooly sandbox to kit up this felted wool appliqué candle mat in preparation for a workshop.  Aren’t the colors awesome?  This project is a great showcase for my hand dyed wools.  I am sure we all have memories of a wonderful beach trip!  Why not stitch those memories into a fun project?  I used my favorite Sizzix.com machines and steel rule Dies to cutout these motifs.   Cut something out and create!  

 

Sweet Talk

31 Jan

Sizzix has several Heart dies in their lineup. What could be better than designing around the iconic Conversation Hearts? Here are my projects related to this theme. I created a large table mat for my antique tea table, a smaller candle mat version, a tiny tall table banner, and Conversation Heart topiaries. I hope you are planning some Sweet Talk for your favorite Valentine!

Stitching Gifts for Sewing Friends

1 Dec
Great gift for you stitching friends.

Great gift for you stitching friends.

Do you have handmade gifts planned for your sewing friends? Locked in my mind forever are these words from my lovely mother Annette “if I can’t eat it, wear it or spend it I don’t want it!” LOL. To this end I created this little Scissor Holder Needle Minder combination. Hope you can fit in plenty of stitching with your Christmas preparations.

Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg Hunt

Felted Wool Applique, Sizzix die cuts Mini Bunny and retired Egg die. Hand dyed eggs and felted grass.
Do you have a favorite Easter Egg Hunt memory? Both my Mom and my paternal Grandmother Vada sure made Easter a magical time with tons of eggs to find and of course that money filled golden egg.

Hello world! I love wool applique, do you?

29 Aug

I love all things quilting, sewing and crafts.  I have been using fusible applique shapes in my projects since 2001.  I hope you will enjoy my Die Cut applique projects.  My goal with these projects is to create works that are easy to finish in a minimal amount of them.  Perhaps you too will catch the wool applique bug and say “I want one of these projects wooly, wooly bad!”  As time permits I will put my wool applique projects on my Etsy sight at PrettyPennyPrecuts.  Happy Stitching!
