Calavera-Style Hedgehog

Since I opened my Etsy shop, I've sold four of the owl patterns! I'm excited, even though that may not seem like a lot.

Now I've added another pattern for sale--a calavera-style hedgehog! I shared the WIP here the other day. Here's a sneak peek of the finished product...

You can check out my Etsy shop and find both patterns right here!

Thanks for stopping by!

Quilts for My Nieces

Well I can finally post these pictures--it's after Christmas AND I finished them (finally!) [#1 I did wait too late to try to finish them...I just barely finished the quilting on the pink one on Christmas Eve...the binding I just finished today because, #2, last week I tried to cut my thumb off whilst chopping onions...opposable thumbs are a very useful thing when both are functional]

So, without further ado, here are the little lap quilts I made for E and R for Christmas this year.

The pink is R's and the purple is E's. Hard to see from this pic, but the pink has little white roses, and the purple has multicolor flower buttons. (R HATES buttons for some none on hers!!)

Here are some closer views of each...

I also made them each a fabric covered bulletin board for their school room (they're home-schooled by my sister). I hope to have a tutorial here in a day or two. But for now, here is a preview.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hedgehog WIP

So--I've had two sales in my Etsy shop since I listed the owl pattern!

I've been working on another pattern in the same Calavera style. But this time, it's a hedgehog. My little hedgehog is a chubby one. So chubby, in fact, that only his front legs are visible. He's quite the little pudge. *grin*

I'm working it up now so that I can photograph it to post on Etsy. Here's a picture of my progress thus far...

(Sorry for the poor quality of the picture--my camera died and I had to take the pic with my iPhone)

Stop by my Etsy shop if you haven't already, and help pass the word! You can get there from right here!

Thanks for stopping by!
