Who Wants a Pretty Wrist Pin Cushion?

Although I'm still perfecting my design for this item, I hoping to offer a few wrist pin cushions for sale at Fancybelle Boutique in the coming weeks. Looks like my spinal fusion surgery is on hold until the end of the month so I'll have a bit more time to concentrate on fun projects!


You can see a little peek of the jumble that is my workstation in the above photos...I didn't feel like straightening up! I do all of my work on an old library table desk that is totally piled full of sewing notions, project pieces and even a folio of scrapbooking items.

Today I got closer to finishing a sewing machine cover for my trusty sidekick, my Grandma Lucy's Riccar sewing machine. I'm experimenting with some zig-zag stitching on the storage pockets...I think it's going to be super cute!

Next up at my store: Amy Butler girly-girl baby blocks and a listing for Baby Belle custom handknit baby and toddler leg warmers. Some listings on Etsy for "babylegs" are just ladies knee-high socks with the foot cut off. Since I always feature custom items of my own design, my shop could offer no less than the same for babylegs!

Later this week I'm expecting to receive a pattern for toddler training pants that I'm more than a little excited about! My son Zach is 2 years old and about 75% of the way towards being potty trained. Some days we run through an ungodly amount of pull-ups, so I'm thrilled to eventually own a non-disposable yet waterproof option.
