Getting Ready for Spring!

Time for a new pincushion! This month it's all about hats. Brightly colored hats, dark and elegant hats, you name it...don't you just love the April pincushion? We've called it 'Too Many Hats' and the pattern comes from a company called The Quilted Fish. We did two colorways; one in modern white and grey with feathers for embellishment; and a second in a darker, more subdued combination of black and brown, with vintage bead millinary findings to decorate. Kits coming shortly!

Remember how we mentioned ruffle fabric on the last post? Here are some samples- how cute did they turn out?!? Perfect for this *lovely* weather we've been having (it's so hit or miss, but we have had a couple of days of sunshine). This scarf shows off vertical ruffles rather than horizontal, and I think it displays the pattern so beautifully, don't you agree?

We've gotten a lot of comments and exclamations over the sparkly Peeps fabric- here are some fresh ideas on how to use it, just before Easter! A fabric basket, a treat sack, or a super-simple bookmark (that's a relatively new book that's showing off the bookmark, it has some really cute ideas!). These could be perfect for last minute basket stuffers...

Just a reminder, we'll be closed for Easter Sunday. Hoping for good, sunny egg-hunting weather! Or chocolate easter eggs...

Happy Stitching!

  1. Just when I think you've made the cutest pincushions, you come out with another one just as cute or even cuter. These hats are adorable in both fabric choices.
