Turtle is going to be famous!


I received a Flickr email today asking if I would be interested in being featured in a new book! I couldn’t believe my eyes. Who knew that my turtle would be so loved by everyone!!! There is interest in my pincushion bracelet too! I am in the clouds right now and want to shout it from the rooftops!!!! I cannot wait to get the proposal package!

Wish me luck!

Pin Cushion Bracelet


Pin Cushion Bracelet

I don’t remember where I found the tutorial for this pincushion. I experimented with filling it with sand but it did not plump up like in the picture. It was kinda small so I decided to make a bracelet out of it. I put some cardboard under the cushion so as not to stab yourself if the pin is accidently pushed all the way in. I’m making some larger ones too. I might put elastic on those to put on your sewing machine. I’ll experiment and take pics and ya’ll can vote on it. They are cute. I am such a perfectionist when it comes to my crafts that I end up spending too much time on em.

I am working on making some boxes for my items when they sell. I’ll take pics and blog about em once I have some prototypes/

Wish me luck!

Wish me luck!
