It's a part of who I am...

Creating heirloom pieces at present - leaving my footprint behind, and perhaps a little something extra for my loved ones in the future

It's Not a Tomato!

Pincushions....they're not just a tomato anymore! With crafting on the rise of ultimate trendiness amongst people young and old, even the tools used to create the latest and greatest have a new look.
I've embroidered a poppy by hand onto aida cloth, and backed it with purple felt as a stand alone pincushion; however, today, pincushions are being fashioned into wearable "hands-free" wristlets, as rings, and thereby taking an old favourite and revamping it to a new level of usefulness.
