Three Weeks and Counting...



... until the Coronado ArtWalk! Golly, it seems to be creeping up so quickly. I know the next three weeks will go by in a big blur as I work like a dog to complete as much as I can on my "to-do" board. I wonder how much I can get done? So far I've only been able to complete three cloud tasks, but I do have several more items in progress that are nearly finished.

The birdie pins are about ready to fly the coop as they get their final touches. Aren't they just too cute, all together like that?!

Toast pillows are coming together too. So far, I have a whole loaf of Toasties!

Since this event takes place in Coronado, I'm going to make sure to have several items featuring "Local Flavor", like my favorite Coronado beach pillows. They are made from recycled sweater wool, with needle felting and embroidery. I love these!

And, last, but not least...

A sneak peek to something totally new and extra FUN!...

Monster coin purses!!!

(How can you resist?!)

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks as I dash towards the ArtWalk finish line. There are many more new items to tell you about. I've very excited for my next reveal! ....

I love all the things you make. You have such a delightful sense of humour which is translated into your work. These monster coin purses are wonderful. I hope I can make it to one of your shows one of these days.
PS I believe in angels too.
