I'm Back!

Where do I even start. Well, perhaps an apology is the best place. I'm so sorry its been so long... a whole year. Its been a crazy one indeed. From Covid to On-line school for the grand daughters to well, like, its just been busy. I want to thank all of my many new Etsy customers. It was so busy in my shop! I was stunned. I guess being stuck at home iwth a sewing machine and kids means that many of you deserved a new pincushion. I'll try to share some of my favorites here. I did have a computer crash and lost a lot of files, but I'll do my best. I have so much to share! The above pincushion is from a lovely collection called Farm Fresh, by Moda. I added a sweet crochet daisy from Crane Crochet. Isn't it fun! My newest creation is from that same line. This pretty quilted and zippered pouch is 9 inches high and 8 inches wide.
I am so ready to try some new things. I have been making myself sewing bags and pouches and wanted to share some of them with you. Here is one with its own Mini-Travel Pincushion....featuring fabrics from Carrie Bloomston called Wonder. She is so playful and fun. Each bag is $18. If you would like the mini pincushion, it is available as a set for $25.
These bags are great for holding all your sewing supplies. I can get my 10" Mundail in them! Check out my Etsy Shop and see all the new designs. I have tried to make one for just about anyone in any style. I'm just getting started. You see.. I also was busy orderin on-line during the lock down and oh my, I have so much fabric!!! Here is a fun bag with 2 matching pincushions. One is full size and you can find it in my Etsy Shop. The other comes along with a zippered bag. This fabric makes me happy!
I can't believe I didn't post about my Bee-Utiful Pincushions. I did share the 1st version in June. I ended up have 4 different styles and after making nearly 200 of them last year, (really!) I am sad to say I have a few scraps left of that fabric line.
That line inspired these fun bee pincushions
I have lots of new pin sets. I decided to add little assortments on a card. Not everyone needs 10 pins and if you buy them for yourself, you really might not want a gift box. So check out these assortments. The little pins are $9 and larger pin assortments are $10. They still make fun gifts. I see little lucite flower decorative pins in so many shops. I wanted to add them to my shop because they are so fun and bright. I found some pretty little Tulip flower beads and they are just so much prettier than any picture can show. I have some little glass flowers and some tiny millefiori pins. If you want a sampler of these little pins, that is also available!
I still love my standard size pins. I founds some really sweet new styles. I put them on cards so if you want to add to an existing collection, you can. The polymer clay pins are bright and lightweight. These TeaPot pins are really gorgeous. I have fallen in love with balls in glass and semiprecious stones. I even have some made of lava for some aroma therapy! A small assortment is also available. It includes any pins you see in my shop. If you want something special...Just ask!
Some of my new customer favorites are also my own. I love the Everything Cherry and Cherry Lemonade fabric Lines. They are bright and remind me of vintage fabrics. Here are my new all stars...
Well, I'm afraid I'm going to over load this blog post and crash this post. I just have so much to share with you. I'll be back soon. I hope you are all healthy and that this past year has not only given you strength in it challenges, but also blessings in some true family time. I hope you have aso been creative. Please share your thoughts with me and my readers. I hope to post more often. I hope to get some tutorials up some day. I miss making them. I thank you for stoppoing by! Jill
