Happy Thanksgiving!

Thankful I just want to thank you all for stopping by my blog and perhaps my Fiberluscious shop. I get to wake up every day and do what I love. Who could ask for more? I hope this day and everyday brings you joy, love and a feeling of belonging. We all kind of fit together like patchwork pieces. Together, well, we are simply amazing! I'm thankful for my husband who doesn't yell about fabric scraps on the floor or a dining room table full of projects. I'm thankful for my mom and grandma, who taught me to love creating things. They helped me to see the magic in taking just a bit of something and turning into something amazing. I'm thankful for all the generous teachers I've had in my life, and the many generous and talented people who share their gift of creating with us all. I'm a self-taught artist but I couldn't have perfected my craft without the help of those who take the time to create fantastic videos and tutorials. I'm thankful for my lovely followers and those who helped me to create a successful shop. To me it means everything to support my family and to have an outlet for my overflowing creative cravings. What a life I have! I'm working on a gift giving guide, which I hope will help you with last minute gifts for someone you love. Perhaps you will find the time to make something for someone this holiday season. I do believe that the best gifts are handmade! I'm also working on a holiday giveaway in December, so stay tuned... I hope you win something you love! Happy Thanksgiving my friends! With thanks, Jill

Need to start your holiday shopping early? Come to Fiberluscious on Etsy. I have so many fun things for sewers in my shop. Starting November 18th to the 30th, everything in my shop is 20% off!
I just added two fun Cheshire Cat Pincushions, one in Purple and one in Gold. I used Tula Pink prints. Since I have a thing for Mia Charro as well, I added a crown of flowers to their heads and added a bright collar too. If you want to give a little stocking stuffer, I have decorative pins in small assortments. Here are my Holiday Pins.
I also have some little pins, perfect for Cross Stitch pattern markers. Here are a few sweet sets that would be perfect! I have flowers in glass and in lightweight lucite. I have tiny millefiori and more! Find them here.

New Gift Ideas

I always say that I'm going to start my holiday shopping early. Then before I know it I'm scrambing at the last minute, and you know how disappointing that can be. I think.... if only I could just make up my mind earlier and order something special. There are so many fun things to buy on Etsy. Where else can you find that one-of-a-kind, unique, perfectly imperfect gift? There is always a funny t-shirt, a personalized bag, a hand made quilt... the choices are wonderfully endless! I also work hard to bring you fun and fabulous gifts for the sewer in your life. I have lots of pincushions, like the Sweet Forest Friends pincushion shown above. I have zippered bags, scrap baskets, sew inspired earrings, beautiful art yarn assortments and of course, lots of Decorative Pin Assortment. Let me show you some of my newest creations and some of my tried and true favorites and best sellers. I hope you find something for someone you know... or even give one of these gems to yourself! Oh Nuts! An adorable squirrel print from Tula Pink! I stuffed this pincushion totally with crushed walnut shells. It keeps in flat on your work table and gently sharpens your pins as well.
Also from Tula, I have an Alice in Wonderland pincushion with an emery core, called Six Impossible Things. This one even has a Teapot pin!
For those who love a little nostalgia, I bring you some sweet, 1930's reproduction prints in a few pincushion styles. My best seller of all time is my 1930's Tomato Pincushion. It was inspired by my grandma who taught me to sew and let me dive into her button box anytime I wanted! You can order it in 6 colors, 3 colors, 2 colors or even in your favorite color! Just ask! I've also made a quilted, Square Patchwork version that is double sided!
You can find lots of Decorative Pins in my shop. They are like icing on any pincushion cake! Add them to one of of your creations, give a set to your friends, put them in your next fundraiser or just keep them around to bring a little sparkle to your sewing studio. I have Holiday Pins, Pretty Flowers, Millefiori, Birds and Bees and try them all in a Sampler! They come in 10 pin assortments all wrapped up in a pretty box. Or try just a few on a card in lots of fun assortments. Be sure to visit my Etsy Shop to see all of them!
Maybe you are just the DIY kind. I have some pretty yarn assortments to add to your next crochet, weaving or craft project. They are even great for gift wrapping.I even have a Holiday Assortment. If you love pretty yeans, I totally recommend my 20 Yarn Assortment. Tell me what you are making and I will put together a custom collection for you!
I love special orders so let me know what you are looking for and I will work with your to create something truly one of a kind. If you're lucky I might even something embroidered available like my Wool Leaf Pinncushion.
Stop by Fiberluscious and I'm sure you will find the best sewing tools on Etsy!
