A Pink Pallet...

I am feeling a little pink lately....
 I wish my camera picked up the pink color a little better.
 This adorable little box of drawers is from a special friend/customer.
Karen thought that we would appreciate this cutie - I sure do!
She used to keep her doll clothes is them and then silk stockings as she got older.  
We think it looks adorable holding sewing supplies.
This is a new pink scissor frog!
Grab it fast if you are interested - it won't last long!
 This "Bloom Sampler" design by Threadworks Primitives makes me smile.
We added cute tiny white buttons and framed it with ribbon that I brought home from Paris.
We can frame your with the same ribbon as long as it lasts.

We are the "Beehive" state...

I just set up a new display in the shop and thought I should share it with you.
 Isn't this cute!
This tiny little pincushion is "Three Bees" by Jeannette Douglas Designs.  
Carolyn finished it with wool felt into a tiny little box pillow.
Her finishing is always incredible!
Lizzie Kate "Be Yourself" design is one of three designs in her pattern packet Bee Busy.  
We framed this with the addition of a wooden hand painted beehive.
 In the background you will notice the piece "No Bees - No Honey" by Birds of a feather.
We made a few changes to our model.
I like the hive stitched in long stitches rather than crosses, it adds a fun new texture. The bees charms are added rather than stitched bees.
We have the changes available with the purchase of the pattern.
 This bee box pincushion is a French Jardin Prive design.
Expertly finished by Carolyn, even with cute little button feet!
