Busy as a Bee!

I made Amanda our granddaughter and her friend wrist corsages for their prom. 


for Amanda


for Molly
Then while I had all my ribbon, pins and crafty stuff all out on the kitchen table, I kept right on creating.  I made up some pin cushions out of some mismatched china, etc.

This had been a candle holder.


A miniature cup and saucer!





Fine bone china!

This one is spoken for! 

Fun, fun, fun.  But I did clean up my kitchen table tonight.  Just couldn't stand to have that mess for too long.   But it will be messy again tomorrow, as I have 9 other pieces ready to do finish.  So will get the mess out again to get them done.  Can show you more pictures as I get them done.  I plan on selling these, and hope to consign them at a nearby boutique shop.  Makes a nice little gift for someone that sews.   Adding a little embroidery sissor tied to the handle of the tea cup would be cute.    I might make some needle holders to go with the pin cushions.  Will just have to see how long these creative juices keep up!!!!!!!! ha!  Like daughter Leah said when she saw these - "You couldn't just make one!"
