TURTLES!

But not the chocolate kind!


I love Spoonflower

Where else can you find such fun fabrics to back your ornaments?  8x8 swatches are $5, a great price for something so original. 

What could be cuter for the back of a TMNT ornament than a bunch of turtle faces?


Or these for the back of some Dr. Who themed ornaments? 


Or endless lines of physics terms for the back of some Big Bang Theory gifts?


I love finding unique fabrics and the way that I can use them to really carry out the theme of my gift.

A new project

A counted canvas piece by Gay Ann Rogers called "First Florentine Ornament".  Stitched on white Congress cloth using several Krenik braids and a skein of Caron Impressions silk/wool blend.
