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.
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.
2 tiny castles. This is my last gold tea cup. Too bad, I love working with them.
I found this sweet silver-plate sugar bowl (?) at the thrift store. I love the little feet!
Perfect for my second Castle.
Pretty primrose cup.
And a well-used egg cup. Although they must have been goose eggs to fit properly!
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 first two are woodsy cabin tiny worlds.
Don’t forget, I will be doing an Owl class on October 27. Come and join the fun!
Tiny Worlds 13, 14, 15 are 2 castles and one last little house. Tomorrow is the Art Festival and then there will be a big restock of my Etsy shop.
Thank goodness for church tag sales- that is where I get lots of good cups!
I haven’t put any of these tiny worlds into my etsy shop yet because I am doing a show next weekend and I am focusing all my time on making pieces for that. The show is the Coolidge Corner Arts Festival. Come and see me is you are in the area!
I have had a lot of fun with all my variegated threads on these tiny worlds.
Another Mid-Century cup-
And a diner classic-
Here is seven, all together-
I have more but will have to wait for the rain to stop to photograph them. Fingers crossed for some good weather!
