Blue and white cups, ferns, variegated threads, trees and shrubs.
I am not ready to think about winter yet, that’s for sure! Only fantasy winter.
In my not-art life, I am enjoying our first fall weather. The dahlias are thriving, the sedum are blooming and covered in bees, and the asters are starting to show some color. I hope everyone is safe from any hurricane weather.
By pure happenstance, this dahlia (which was simply labeled pink) is matching the hydrangea that I planted it next to!
First is Bluebell Cottage; or Harebell, which is what it says on the bottom of the saucer. But Bluebell sounds so much better.
And then Violet House-
It is pretty clear that someone in my area had a collection of violet-themed teacups. I found a number of them at 2 separate local fund-raising sales! Lucky me.
I have pulled out all the tea cups. Let’s see what they become!
Here are the first 2-
Yes, one is quite a bit bigger than the other.
And a reminder- if you want to make your own pincushion, the pattern is here.
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!
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.
