Fall & Halloween Plush on the way!




It's that time again. Hard to believe it, but I go back to work/ school tomorrow! So I just have to list some fall items I have been working on.
There is such a rich feeling to Fall colors. I took out all of my Fall magazines (And I have a ton of them)! I like to look through magazines to get myself in the mood to design. It is sometimes hard to design for the holidays when it is 95 degrees here in Virginia Beach!

So here are a few Fall friends for you to enjoy. All of them are at my Etsy shop...and a new Witch is on the way!

Summer Angels



This always happens to me!!!
I have about three weeks left before school starts and I get really busy with orders. I LOVE IT!!!
It is so much fun to line up my projects. I actually cut all the fabrics out and put them in zip lock bags. I label them by due dates. Then I can grab a bag and my sewing basket and head out to wherever the family wants to go. I did Chucky Cheese yesterday...the moms must have thought I was CRAZY!! But my little Katie played in the maze area, and I could sit right at the opening and watch her have fun! NICE!!

So, I have an ETSY friend http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5539002 who has been in Somerset Magazine and the sister magazines several times. She has encouraged me to send in some work. So I made this Angel and I am sending her in!
You must stop by Your Angil's shop at the link above. If you are looking for unique tags, supplies and fun stuff in general...you will love it!!

Mommy & Doll Set




I almost forgot to add a new Mommy & baby Doll set to my post. This is a new design I made recently. I am thinking of making a larger one with the mommy having three pockets with a baby in each. I think that would be fun for a little girl to play with. My daughter is 8 years old now and I can't get this one away from her!

Summer Fairies








Where is the summer going? It has been a strange, but fun summer for us. First the air conditioner broke. Then I needed a new car battery...things just have not been running very smoothly! Also, we have had a ton of rain and very heavy storms here in Virginia Beach...not our normal weather.

But, through it all I have been stitching away. I wanted to make some small little softies that could be made as ornaments, or pins, or just for fun collecting.

I had ordered some soft blue batting with Angelina...Ohhh, it is too pretty! So I made some wonderful fairies to flutter around!

I have also made a few Kitty party favors. They are so sweet. I love their little faces! See what you think.
