Christmas Crafts

Trying to get a head start on my fall shows, which I should have done several months ago. But you know how easy it is to get side-tracked! Just thought I'd share a couple of new things with you. The "Happy Sewing" mouse sits on top of a vintage child's enamel cup. The "Mouse Couture" is just a sweet romantic mouse.

I have a production line going now of the Snowman Bottles. I'll show you the rest when they are all finished.

No Sew Dust Ruffle

I'm finally starting to feel a little productive once again and got into a creative mood this past week. I made a long awaited dust ruffle to go with our summer coverlet by tucking the fabric between the mattress and box springs and hand gathering. It's a small red and white check which is hard to tell from the picture. We have a king size bed so it took 7 yards, which I cut in half to make it full enough. One day I may actually gather it on my machine, but right now I have too many other fun things I want to do.

I also finished two more mice pincushions and a snowman bottle I started last year! It turned out so cute I have a production line going now. Will post those pictures later.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

Happy Mother's Day

I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day. My daughter, Kristie, sent this sweet flower arrangement to me yesterday - pastels and polka dot ribbon. She knows me so well!
