Mushroom Necklace

I've combined my two loves! Fabric and jewelry.

This cute little necklace is using some cute Heather Ross spoonflower fabric sealed in a filigree cabochon base.

I might make some more to put in my empty etsy shop that's using up unnecessary cyber space... but it depends on whether or not there's interest. I would also do some gnomes, fish, and other cute things. What do you think?

I Love Amy

...well at least her fabrics. And her newest line On A Whim 2 demanded a new baby quilt from me.

I used a dark brown Kona cotton for the background and fussy cut all the lovely critters to scatter around.

The pattern is from the "Take Two and Add A Few" book. And just a couple more photos for cuteness affect...

For the backing I slapped on a luscious chocolate brown minky and a polka dot binding to finish it.

Alot of Birdies

Before I begin, a big ole thanks to Jennifer who took all these pictures for me. I lost my camera for a whole week, but I found it again, and in a very obvious place too...

First up are a couple of Birdie Slings I made from the Amy Butler pattern. I really love this purse...(which might be why I've made four). The first one is out of the super cute matryoshka fabric that Jennifer gave to me forever ago.

Matched with green stars and Anna Maria Horner polka dots, its my bag of envy.

The brooch is a hand knit one that I found while in Edinburgh and immediately fell in love with.

My second birdie sling is made out of Tula Pink birdies. Just for fun... and apparently because I felt deprived of bags.

I borrowed the handle idea from Jenny's bag, although I don't think she showed any of the tape measure.

Finally in case you didn't see them on Jennifer's blog, we made some spool sewing birds for the shop .

They were really hard to photograph, but look really cute hanging up.

And mind you, I could have fallen and died while trying to hang them, so they better be appreciated.

I'm heading off to Berlin tomorrow! So I should have a lot of lovely photos to show off when I get back!
