Baby Shoes, Bakery Goods And A Blog Post...

I received my mail yesterday and found these sweet little Mary Janes inside a padded envelope. They were sent by my eldest niece's best friend, Joanne. She had seen my little baby shoe pincushions and asked me to embellish these shoes for her precious daughter, Evie to wear. (She named her daughter after my niece's middle name.) I'm just itching to get into the studio to make them the girliest, most charming, little shoes just for Evie. I promise I'll show you what I do with them!
Did I tell you that I really love the convenience of Moda's Honey Buns and Jelly Rolls? Honey Buns are precut strips 1.5" wide by 44" long. They are usually comprised of one strip of each fabric in an entire line. Jelly Rolls are precut strips 2.25" wide by 44" long, and are also one strip of each fabric in a line.

I have a whole drawer in the studio full of these "Buns" and "Rolls". (Are you getting hungry yet?) I'm going to be making some project bags again, and will be using these fabric lines for my bags...just soon as I can get some free time to myself in the studio.
Can you imagine how much fun it was for me to go to Pagewood Farm's blog site and see a post about our association? I was tickled, to be sure. Here's the link for you to read about it for yourself.

In case you're interested...You can also purchase cowl patterns (and finished cowls) in my Brynwood Boutique or my Etsy shop.

Oh, and I've also made a couple extra Mad Hatter's Teacup Pincushions and they are now available for sale in the Boutique.

Hi Donna,
I got a little behind on visiting blogs and I just got to the wedding dress post! You created a beautiful gown and I'm sure the bride will look beautiful in it! My favorite part was the exquisite detailing on the back with the flowers...just beautiful! Looking forward to seeing pics of the bride in the gown.
