Pocket pendants

Are these pocket pendants or pendant pockets.

 You know what this one is for?
I love making these little things.
Should I put them on etsy?

My friend Jan gave me a lovely length of dark blue cord
so I could make some more of these...

I am looking forward to my next work shop so I can wear my new "jewellery".

Can someone tell me, though,
when I have edited these photos (cropped, rotated, compressed)
when I blog they come out sideways??

I think I'm liking it.

I am having a sort of hibernation,
confined to quarters.
I am taking this time to get on with this quilt.

Am I blue?
Cutting edge?

the new quilt

Do you get anxious about starting a new quilt?
Cutting into the precious fabric?

Have I chosen the right colours?

I have cut out the entire quilt and now I am shading the colours
so here goes......

sold out

I sold all those pincushions at our exhibition
and I still don't have one
so time to make another.

Or two....
They are filled with crushed walnut shells
This gives the pincushin a lovely feel 
sharpens your pins!

Here they are with one of my favourite dresses:
more than a pincushion I would say.
I think I will list them here.

 Here's where we started...

 Such a great place!
Come and have a cuppa with me?

A little while ago I was playing with portable pincushions
Well I am still playing.

I am sick of going back and forth to the sewing machine
 with pins in my mouth so I started this exploration.
These are from my little Japanese remnants.....
They'll be at out Exhibition this week end!
