Etsy Love #6 etc.

First off on this lovely Friday morning, I want to say thank you to OhGrrrs! for my fabulous new bracelet. It arrived very quickly, was even more affordable, and I love it! I'm not a jewelry person, at all, but every now & then I'll wear a bracelet. I especially like button bracelets, and this one is so cute. The colors are great & some of the buttons even look like they're vintage. She package it up with this cute tag & button too, I love that. Please, go check out her shop on Etsy & maybe you can get one too.

And yesterday I made my first attempt at pin cushions. Here's the result. I used some fabric I had, and some I bought. I'm not planning to sell this one, but I think it turned out pretty cute.

And check out this cool monkey fabric I got last week. How could I resist? I'm not going to say what it's for, but it'll end up in my shop eventually. ;)

I'm also working on a logo quilt for my Farmer's Market booth, so far it's looking pretty good. When I've finished it, I'll be posting a tutorial on how I made it.

Have a great Friday and weekend!
