A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU !!

It's only taken me about 6 months to pay some attention here..........time for a new start for everything!

Let me introduce you to Mr. Whipstitch, the mayor of the Thimblefolk. ( Oh, how I wish there really were thimblefolk at my house to help me sew and stuff...) I designed and made him for my logo, he is about 12 inches tall and he sits on a giant tomato pincushion I made from vintage wool. I needle felted his face......not bad for my first time needlefelting??? He wears a pewter thimble shotglass on his head for a hat....he sits on my sewing table and keeps me on my toes.

I need to thank my sister for making my banner, I have yet to master the computer, especially graphics. We share a blog together.......hallowedhillprimitives.....and she has a blog.....paisleystudio.

Be back again soon,
Barb
