Show and Tell

For the last few years Donna Of Brynwood Needleworks has been putting in requests for me to create a new piece for her. One that would incorporate her love of Oak Trees...Ya see she kinda has an Oak Tree fetish, oak leaf fetish...Acorn fetish...anything Oak she will want, love and covet...did I mention she really likes squirrels...course squirrels and Oaks just kinda go together. Donna and squirrels...both nutty for Oaks.
I told her that I've never made a squirrel...never designed a pattern for one...always wanted to, but never got around to it...I finally took the plunge and did...and it was fun...and I am ever so happy with how he turned out!
See the eggcup...it has Oak branches painted on it...yup...that's Donna's treasured egg cup...she mailed it to me so I could use it as a stand for my very first squirrel. Thank you Donna for trusting me with it! I am thrilled that I finally got to make you a piece that incorporates your love of Oak trees and squirrels. 

Have a nutty kinda day!

Peter Rabbit Up for Adoption

 
 I decided to welcome in Spring by creating a Peter Rabbit Pin-Keep.
He has a wee woolly blue coat with teeny tiny Pearl buttons...and little stitched pockets.
He is perched on his rusty Donut Cutter Pin-cushion which I have adorned with a few pins and vintage Milliner flowers.
The bottom of the Donut cutter Pin-Keep features a distressed page from a Beatrix Potter Book...I glittered the edges to add a little touch of magic. 
Peter's adoption fee is Sold $285.00 US which includes shipping and insurance to anywhere is the United States or Canada.

Payment by PayPal only please.

Email me to Purchase Peter

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Little Mouse Up for adoption

Happy Spring
He has been Adopted Thank you!
One teeny tiny little mouse up for adoption today. He measures 2 1/2 inches tall from the tip of his wee ears to the bottom of his fuzzy feet. I have given him a little red wool scarf to keep him warm on his journey to his new home.
He is perched on a pincushion fashioned from French General fabric...a red wool strawberry hangs off the side. 
Encircling the two pincushions are white headed quilting pins to use in your sewing projects. On the bottom of the cushion are two wool circles and an old shell button.

He is $SOLD which includes shipping to anywhere in the USA or Canada.

This is not a toy and is intended for the adult collector or children above the age of 12.

I'm Back ; ) Happy New Year!


It's been a long while since I have posted...over a year I think. Lots has happened in this time...we built a new home and I have a new studio which I am just thrilled with.
and I am happy to say that I am back creating my critters. I posted a few photos of older work in this blog post just to refresh your memories...and mine. Always nice to to look on old work to help inspire new work.
 
  As a side note I will be posting Mouse Droppings updates on my Facebook page(link upper right of screen)...you are welcome to pop by there to see what I am up to. 
Email me to join my mailing list if you would like to be notified of up and coming sales.
So happy to be back!
