Last year we started a program called "Celebrate" - it's a year-long program, where you receive a new pendant or pin every-other month, that are related to holidays or seasons.  It was a lot of fun, and we have decided to run that program again.  This is a sample of what you will receive throughout the year.  You can see all of the details on my website.  

Along with the pendants you also get a free pin cushion pattern each month!  One of my clever customers, Kathie, decided to use her patterns to make wall hangings instead - such a great idea - then you have something cute to hang up for the seasons and holidays!  Look how fun these are...

 Make sure you sign up now - as always, space is limited (because I can only make so many!).  Do you need a unique gift for a friend?  This would be perfect - the gift that keeps on giving!

I started stitching on my Primitive Garden quilt. You can see that I'm using the cute ruler box that DH made for me to hold my threads, scissors, needles, etc.  Perfect!
 I bought a little bundle of wool from Shakerwood Woolens that I used for the purple flowers - it was just perfect.

 We've been busy with jewelry - trying to build things back up for upcoming shows.  I am doing a presentation/trunk show for a guild in Mission, KS in just a few weeks and will be taking some of these with me.

 I had a ton of pendants that I wanted to add bling to - it took forever, but I'm happy with the results. I ordered a bunch of cute charms and had fun adding them to the mix...

I used a lot of little sewing-related charms in these - scissors, irons, buttons, sewing machines - fun!

And now it's time to get busy mailing out the first installment of "Surprise!".  If you signed up, be watching your mailbox this week!

Have a great day!


  1. What a creative use of the pincushion patterns!
    Your wool work looks so good. Love how the purple wools worked out.
    So much fun stuff you have made--those bee pendants are super cute!!

  2. So glad the bling is the bees!!
