Pins pins pins

Hi all! 
Hope you had a great weekend! My daughter has been making polymer clay dragons so I thought I would give it try and made up some cute pins. I have seen pins like this on different web sites and have even purchased a few for myself with the old adage of "I can make this!". But of course that usually does not happen, can you relate? Well I impressed myself and made up a few. They were actually quite easy to make. So here are my creations....

They turned out quite cute if I say so myself! There are many tutorials on the web and you can find the clay at a local craft store. I used a brand called sculpty (follow baking instructions on package) and then I put a shiny gloss glaze on it when done. Until next time! Keep sewing!

Hey there!

I hope everyone had a nice Easter Weekend! I enjoyed the day with my family. I wanted to get my girls a plush Easter bunny, but I couldn't find just the right one. So I decided to whip up two bunnies. This is what I came up with.

I thought they turned out quite well! The pink one is fleece with an appliqué print and the brown one is minkee. Sewing on minkee can be tricky as it slips very easily. So make sure to use plenty of pins!  I also finished up the last of my four owls. I know, finally!  It has been sitting around unstuffed for-Ev-VER! But I'm glad it's finally done. 

This owl will soon be flying off to its new home. They were fun to make just hard to finish! Hahaha. If you know me I can't work on one thing at a time. Right now I'm focusing on my wool project from Sue Spargo, a Judy Neimeyer quilt called Pricky pear that isn't published yet, a mohair jointed bear and another wool block of the month from the Quilt Basket that it designed and taught by Cathy Skow. I'll post my status on these projects later. Have a good day! And keep sewing!

More pincushions!

Hi there! Here are a few more pics of some pincushions I made. I attend a quilt camp every year that is hosted by Quilters Market at the Tanque Verde Ranch,  and I always make Lynda and Bonnie a pincushion. I made this cow (trying to keep with a western theme) but was not too enthralled with it. So I opted to finish up my owls (from ages ago remember?). Anyway, they loved them and the cow as well so they all got new homes, yay!!

My previous project I posted is coming along. I'll update soon. Have great day!
