New Pieces and What's Next...


I hope your Tuesday is off to a great start!
As you can see below my blog banner...
I've been working on santa pieces!
We're enjoying a few of the warmest days so far
this season... and I have Christmas music playing~
(giggle)

I made these little round pieces at the same time
I made my latest giveaway...
(Be sure to comment in my previous post for a chance to win today!)

They will be in my Etsy shop today...
They started as little pillows.
Each of the fabric patches have a small opening
in the side where you can add filling.
They are so sweet flat!
Nothing is permanently stitched on!
They'll be a work-in-progress for you~
The vintage linen circles are pinned in place...
The little shabby chic words are
held with my famed primitive stitch work!


I have a mound of Americana themed pieces
waiting...
ready for my ink and pen...
after the Christmas deadlines are completed...


I added a touch of color with Prismacolor pencils...


I can't stop picking up acorns...
Can't stop drawing them!


Pieces just waiting...


Just itching to play...

Must return to the studio!
Thank you for stopping by!
I'm glad you left a
comment for the giveaway!
Sweet 16 will pull the winner today around 3pm!

Best wishes and smiles...

I love these and those linnens look so inviting to draw on them! In fact, your drawings inspired me so much that I have registered for a new artclass starting after summer. as it's ages ago sinse I drew with pencil, inks or anything else than digital media.

Your creations are very pretty; do you make Christmas cards? I did the same thing when writing my book about Christmas, putting on Christmas carols to set the stage in spring and summer, so I can relate to your music.

These are so adorable! I would like an acorn piece, also. Will it be on Etsy? Your Christmas art is so pretty! I wish I could draw. :)

Thank you, so much, I am thrilled to be the lucky winner of your giveaway.

By the way Michelle, do you ever sleep?

Michelle - I love the new pieces - so folksy and creative! And those Christmas creations - they are amazing - like I want them all!

I am so sorry I missed the recent give away - my work has been crazy and I got behind on my blogging - but I do so love the litle strawberry sweeties!
