Taking it easy...

Just had to show you Colleen's sweet little cottage pin cushions from the Queen of Arts show.
They all sold the first day but I managed to get a photo before everyone came. She combined needle felting and embroidery stitching and some fun embellishing to create these fun little houses.
I'm taking it a bit easier after the show but still can't resist making some things for a neighborhood sale coming up. My first 3 elephants sold the first day so I made these two while watching Dancing with the Stars.

And this funny bird got some spots sewn on....

And here is my work (dining room) table before the show! I promised to have it cleared before Thanksgiving! The trouble is that I love to have my sewing machine right in the heart of the house where I can just stitch a little something when I need to and the moment strikes and not go outside to my art studio. I may just move it out for the Holidays so we can eat like a family.

Those houses are adorable! and I love to sew in my dining room. I just bought a new table and I had to promise not to put my sewing machine on it until after the holidays!!! I'm not sure I'll be able to keep that promise.

I'm getting ready for a show too and my table looks just like yours! Somehow that makes me feel better. Love the spotted bird--such a happy guy!

I am so happy to see that you have a table that resembles my desk at times. :)
