2 with no saucers

Lots of times I find nice cups that have no saucers. Some days I think it’s fine, other days not. Well, these ones came home and have their own little worlds now.

Can you see that this cup has Paul Revere on his famous ride?

This one is a summer flower garden of roses- how could I resist!

I have put my tiny world pattern back in my Etsy shop and it is on sale for $8 for a few days. Also, I will be putting all of these pin cushions in the shop, hopefully by tomorrow night.

Tiny World time

I taught a tiny world workshop last weekend. Two of the participants finished in time for me to get a photo-

Lots of bright color choices during the gloomy days of winter! Teaching meant that I pulled out all my supplies and made some sample parts and all the rest. So, post class, I am working on my own Tiny Worlds this week.

It is fun to be working on them again after such a long time!

They will be part of a show called Don’t Play With Me. The gallery is in Pawtucket, RI at Machine With Magnets. There is an opening on Sunday, Dec. 7, 4 – 7 with lots of cool things happening. If you can’t make the opening, the show is up until early January. If Facebook is more your thing, there is a page with all the info about the show here.

The other thing I wanted to tell you about- My friends at Sweet Paul magazine gave me a link to share for a free digital subscription. Go ahead, check it out! It’s FREE!

I am working as much as I can to finish pieces that I promised and also have new things in the shop. There is never enough time before Christmas!

Good Mail Day

I have some postcards in a show at the Artstream Gallery in New Hampshire. I called them stitched doodles. They are all approximately 4″ x 6″.

If you are interested in any of them, they are available here. There are lots of other amazing little gems of art available from artists around the world. Check it out!

This was the one that didn’t get sent because I needed to pick out 4 from the five I made.

West Elm News!

WooHoo! Remember this? Me working on prototypes for ornaments for West Elm? Well, they are now available online! I am SO excited! I haven’t seen them in person yet but they look very close to my originals-

Their version- girl, boy. Theirs are machine stitched but they are really close and certainly retain the look- I am completely thrilled! There is also a moose, a bear and a racoon.
