It's Rainy Here Today!

Not like that is huge news for most people....but for us here in the desert it is! We had a terribly dry monsoon season last year so I get very excited for rain when it happens! Which brings me to my next point....what do most of you do when it's cold and rainy outside? Are you like me? Do you like to get cozy, pop in a movie and craft away until it gets dark? I think that is my favorite time to craft...when it's cold outside : )

I found a wonderful wool felt distributor - they hand dye all of their wool and the colors are beyond gorgeous! Take a look! Weeks Dye Works is awesome! I have no idea why but my favorite pincushions to sew are made of wool felt. Maybe it's because when you stitch with embroidery thread they really pop? Or maybe because they look so bold sitting there next to your sewing machine : )
I took a little time they other day and made 2 strawberry pincushions - aren't' they juicy or should I say fuzzylicious?

More Stuff in the Shop Today!

Hello Friends!
I forgot to Blog this morning : (........
Just wanted everyone to know that I added about 40 items to the shop today all of which are made to order. So what you see are samples that I can make for you. I will be working on some Valentine pins that I hope will be ready in about a week or so...could be a little bit longer. I've been so busy with my Pin Topper of the Month Club (ptmc) that I haven't had much time to blog or make items for Etsy!!! But I hope to be caught up really soon!
This little Birdie Love Letter pin topper has tweeted her way to Etsy for Valentine's Day! Come see what else is going on when you get a chance!
