Show and Tell Monday

Well, its Sunday night again! Its been a nice and quiet weekend, so I was able to get quite abit done. Thats always a good thing. Why is it when you think you are just about caught up, you can see the end, then all of a sudden your at the back of the line again. LOL I guess that OK too. I guess if you actually do get to the end, it just may actually be "the end" and I certainly dont want that. :) But it does feel great to be productive and get things accomplished.

This weekend I finally got to work on some pincushions. I know so many people are doing them now, and why not? Sewing has grown in popularity and they are just so darn cute. These are my interpretations. I am experimenting with fimo clay to make little pins to go with them. I made these cupcakes and roses, but they are a little rough, but not bad for the first effort. I will make more this week. The cupcake bottom and the child size teapost was made by my friend Cindy at Angel Heart Designs. I always like working with her! I also got one more pillow finished. Its a cake and black and white. And last, this is my first attempt at making slippers for the Pink Slipper Project. (see post below for details) So, all in all it was a good weekend. This week I will be working on some new and different pillows and some jewelry. I see in all of the fashion magazines that this fall the deep rich jewel tones are so popular, especially the plum colors. Look for new jewelry to wear for fall. Have a great week,,, until next time.. gail

I think the cupcakes are beautiful, love the pincushions. I agree sewing is back, machine sales have gone through the roof over here, seems everyone is turning back to making to stretch the few pennies.

Love the slippers. Have a good week
