the last 2 Tiny Worlds for now

I just had to make a snow scene before I finished this batch.

Now this last one had to get made because somehow I always end up with 13 and I’m superstitious… I know, crazy. So I had to make one more.

Okay, so that’s it for now. I will be trying to get them all into my etsy shop in the next few days. Everything is now listed in the shop!

Also, a reminder- The Owl class is in 2 weeks. Come and join the fun!

Fairy House Tiny Worlds

I am almost finished with the Tiny World pincushions. Two more after this and hopefully there will be a little dry weather tomorrow to take photos.

This one is made on a beautiful cup which has unfortunately lost it’s saucer. A very lovely lady in Washington DC gave me 2 of them when I was doing the Smithsonian Show. I am so happy to give them a new purpose.

Two new Tiny World designs

First we’ve got a barn with a rooster on the mug.

Those tiny sheep were a challenge!

And this design is something I’ve pondered for a long while. I wanted to do a night scene. I even found those wonderful star pins at Tale of the Yak, when I was in San Francisco last summer. And then, to bring it all together, I found this black teacup at the thrift store and so it happened.

Not too Halloween-y I think.

The weather today was back to summer (mid-80′s) here in the Boston area. Look who visited my garden-

I don’t see many monarch butterflies anymore so this made me very happy.

I did a computer operating system update (upgrade?) and now everything is just a bit different. Mostly, no problem, but my Photos program and editing is looking new, everything hiding under tabs that weren’t there before and I’m in the midst of the dreaded learning curve. Urg. I just keep repeating to myself- good for brain elasticity.

Tiny World Time

The Tiny World class was tons of fun. So much fun that I forgot to take any photos! But, after the class, I have lots of bits and pieces, partially started elements, and it is fun to get them all finished up. And of course, once I’ve started, I have to make a whole little village. Here are the first 2-

The class is open to all ability levels as long as you feel comfortable threading a needle and using scissors. There is some machine sewing involved but mostly hand sewing.

Here is a link to an Owl class I taught a while back.
