This is Bettie the bunny! She is new to shop and filled with hand-painted goodness! I have been working on bettie and other creatures for sometime now. I am trying new things in order to bring together my sewing and painting! She is a little clue to what new things maybe stopping by the shop next year!
Well I hope everyone is excited about the holidays! I know I am! Have a happy and wonderful Christmas my ity-bity friends!

I did get to some much needed sewing this weekend! I do have much more to do today, but one step at a time! Here are some squirrels that are new to my shop! They are having a fight over the last acorn! I think I made this pouch because of the squirrels I have been watching. I think someone forgot to tell them it is winter! Every morning they brave the cold and dig at the icy ground looking for food! Such silly little critters!
Hope everyone has a busy and fun filled week!

One of my favorite shops for pin cushions is RabbitsMoon! I love here whimsical use of color, fabrics and appliques. How cute is this little Peter Cottontailish bunny!
The last pin cushion is an antique pin cushion. I have no idea who made it..but it is beautiful! I adore the porcelain doll torsos that were incorporated in the design at the time. I imagine these huge hoop skirt pale ladies during Washington era making there wonderful gowns! But the question is always...How did they sew in those skirts?
Have a wonderful Thursday !

I did get in some much needed sewing this weekend! I had many orders to fill and at first seemed overwhelmed with all that needed to be done. But I managed to get most of it finished and even fit in some play time. I will be adding some of my new creations through out the week to my shop.
Because this is the time for gift giving and to be thinking of others. I have decided to list some great organizations that are perfect to help out this holiday season!
Have a wonderful Monday my friends!

Also new in the shop are the Ity-Bity Gift Packs! I put together a few cute items that I think would make a great gift! These will only be available for a limited time. I don't plan on making bunches of these.
Well off I go to do some much needed house chores. Now that I think of it maybe I will bake a coffee cake too! Yum! Nothing is as good as fresh baked coffee cake and hot coffee! Have a wonderful Wednesday♥

I love this sewing kit! I have to do all I can from keeping myself from buying it! (I am trying to save for x-mas gifts). Maybe if I hint around enough my hubby will buy it for me. Anyway to purchase this or many other adorable Decole items try Loloko. They have a wide selection of Decole.
Here are some more shops I have found that carry Decole:
SugarPineBeauty - They have a small collection of Decole items.
Atelier JADE - awesome collection of Decole and cute fabrics!
ReproDepot -They carry Cram Cream and also some very cute fabrics!
Glitterworkshop- They have a wide selection of Cram Cream and other deliciously cute items!
