Treasure Boxes

Oh, I love boxes! Any kind, any shape. I cannot throw one away. I can't resist buying them either. Neither can others it seems. A show I did this weekend proved that! People love them and they always are the thing that nearly always sell out. That and cards. People always seem to need/want cards too.

No help at JoAnn's

So I bought this book at JoAnn's and wanted to make a scarf like one I saw in it. I found a lady that worked at Joann's and made the mistake of showing her what I wanted to make and then telling her I wasn't much of a sewer. She said she thought I couldn't do it, then wouldn't show me where anything was. When I read from the materials list and said, What is Poplin and where is it? She'd say cotton and on the cotton isle. Everything I asked for, it went something like that! Finally, I got frustrated, and walked away! lol. Well, I got what supplies i thought I could work with and here's the finished project. I feel like going back to JoAnn's and showing that chick! Geesh!

Charm Sets

Here are my latest Charm Sets. I love making them! I am getting ready for a show on the 16th and the 17th, my last of the season. I did one less this year, but my teaching has increased insanely. Hope you like these charms, they are also up on my ETSY.

Fun with Timtex

TIMTEX..... I am hooked on it now. What fun the stuff is. I decided to try to use it on making necklaces and it sure was awesome! What else can I do with it? Time will tell. The wheels are turning, my sewing machines out and ready. I will show you what else I come up with later. Can you tell I am not a sewer~ at all?
