My nephew, Carter, just celebrated his 3rd birthday! Of which he had a pirate theme! So I made chocolate cupcakes with caramel buttercream and salted caramel sauce

And as a gift I made a pirate map! All freehand embroidered- my largest embroidery project yet!

Gnome Laundry…

It’s the dead of winter and I’ve been dreaming of springtime lately…

blue skies, white puffy clouds, bright green grass, fresh clean laundry, warm breezes, and tiny gnomes.

Christmas Ornaments!

The holidays consumed every minute of my existence this past month. It was my first year with my very own christmas tree… which means I started with one ornament. So I got busy making them until my tree looked good and proper.






Gingerbread Eaten Man

Embroidery Round

Embroidery Round/Glittered Pinecone


Some I used online crochet patterns others were ideas from google images. Lots of glitter, lots of yarn = good holiday fun. And mess. I think the apron hasĀ  to be my favorite but before that was the gingerbread man.

Recently finished door welcomer. I started this guy a couple years ago now. I made the mushrooms out of polymer clay- I have about a hundred of them due to one determined week some summers ago. I’m happy with him. I remember him being just a head for a while- he’s come a long way.

Littlest House on the Street

I went through a phase of making tiny embroidered houses one summer ago. I had completely forgotten about them but the move revealed a lot of treasures I had forgotten about.

This is but one of the recoveries.
