|Strawberry Cream Jam Tart Pin Cushion!|
I make these from old crocheted pot holders that have lived their previous lives as the top of the insert
and old metal jello molds as the base. I top them off with a vintage button.
(Please excuse the photos. The sun just didn't want to cooperate and my photo program didn't help.)

The mold is an old tart mold that someone painted white once upon a time.
|Two wall hanging using corners off the tablecloth secured into |
embroidery hoops I bought at Goodwill for 25 cents apiece.
|The pieces created so far plus a piece that is destined to become a couple pins.|
|One of the center appliques. I can't wait to find a use for this wonderful section!|
I am hoping to set up a table of my handmades a couple Saturday's this summer at a local winery's weekly Artisan Market. Hopefully I can get all the paperwork squared away in time for the first market on May 5th.

You can see at the back right a bit of a felt food breakfast set (I have bag lunch felt sets as well).
I am hoping to include some of my totes that I make from vintage materials, some hand knits (hats, doll sweaters and washcloth's and keepers) and some smalls like these pin cushions I just made. I will post pics of what I plan on bringing and the location when all is finalized in case any readers are from the Twin Cities area and are interested in a fun way to spend a Saturday.

(I have a couple more almost done in a couple other color schemes).
They make great housewarming or hostess gifts!
