I have been having fun the past few weeks making Cupcake Pincushions for my shop. My huge stash of yummy felt has been asking to be turned into delicious icing! With Claire's new classes through the week and the dark days I am finding it difficult to take photos but I did manage to get a couple shots of some sweet goodness...
I joined my first group swap! All the wonderful bird ornaments on Flickr at Christmas time gave me a neat idea for my tree next year... a tree full of birds with a birdhouse at the top! Having only one bird ornament makes that idea a bit difficult so when I heard about the "Birds of Change" Exchange organized by Regina of Creative Kismet I became very excited! Each person makes five bird ornaments and in return receives five new ones! I believe there are about 350 bird ornaments flying to Regina's house this month!!! For some bird inspiration visit the Birds of Change Exchange Flickr group! I'll be on the search for bird ornaments all year ;o)
I will be giving away one of these little linen birds on my blog on January 20th! ...and because they are so addictive to make there will be a few for my shop too :o)
Speaking of swaps... I received this wonderful parcel from Anne Marie of Life in Yonder all the way from Norway! This cute litle Needlebook was made especially for me and the fabrics are absolutely my style! I love the little tea & sewing charms too! Thank you Anne Marie!
