I just finished a few of the many orders I have pending in my Etsy Shop. I've been so busy. Since the first of November, when the holiday rush hit, I've created over 80 pincushions! Just looking at that number makes me want to go take a nap.
I am blessed to have so many loyal customers. I adore each and every one of them. Mostly because the challenge me. They give me a bit of financial independence, which allows me to cater to my lovely fabric addiction. Because they ask me to create special little somethings or even when they request one of my favorite styles, I try to give each order my undivided attention.
Here is one of my latest for Michelle-
Here is a detail shot showing all the tiny beads and lovely stitches involved in making this, "Garden of Delight" Needlecase.
I adore wool, wool roving, hand-dyed wool and sparkly beads. This needlecase allows me to play with all my favorite materials and colors. The many hours of stitching involved is truly a labor of love. I was sad to see this one go.
She also ordered a pincushion from a while back called the "Mary Had A Little Lamb" pincushion. Again I got to play with wool. What is nice about this one is the raw wool with all its curly goodness. The body of the wool is made from recycled sweaters. I love to add a bit of green to my shop. I think the fabric brings some happy karma with it.
I had another pear to make...
Lots of Wool Leaves..
A few Crazy Patch..more to come...
And recently a "Color Me Happy" Patchwork.
So if you are wondering why I haven't had as many new additions to my shop, or if you are waiting for one of your creations, have faith. I pour all my time and love into each item as it comes up on my list. I try to rush out the easy and ready made orders asap. But I never rush through something I love to make. I enjoy the process and I hope you feel that it was worth the wait.
