Red and Pink

The Karin Franzen workshop this weekend was a success! Karin was a real inspiration and participants had a wonderful time. Pictures coming soon! Now, back to real life...

New month means new pincushion at Two Thimbles! Check out the Victorian Slipper that's being featured as the February Pincushion of the Month. We got the idea from a fellow blogger who first created this shoe out of paper. The soft floral design makes this tool a pretty addition to your sewing room. The toe is stuffed to keep your needles in check, and the heel has enough room to hold a little pair of scissors or a spool of thread. Kits will be available later this week!

Some more inspirational ideas include a sweet little lunch bag (for some sweet treats!) or a darling stuffed Scottie. This festive wallhanging is displayed behind the counter with an addede banner hanging in front- just folded paper and ribbon, is that a great idea for a party decoration or what?

With these fun new Valentine projects, you just need to add some chocolate and it's a celebration! Happy Stitching!

  1. I'm so glad to hear your workshop was so successful. I know how much you admire Karen's work. I look forward to seeing your pictures.
    The pincushion is so adorable with all the details of a true Victorian Slipper. The little Scottie Dog is so cute too. That fabric is perfect for him.
