Pendants for my Team

Each year I try to do something to thank my team of amazing folks that help to make the Lowell Quilt Show an annual event. This year I decided to try something different. I have been making Annie’s Bags lately, and I love having a zipper pull that is unique. I also have several pendants that I have purchased over the years from artists on Etsy. I love them all! So I thought, hum, maybe I should make pendants.

And I discovered I could indeed make these myself! So with help from the folks at Purple Mountain on Etsy I got all the instructions and supplies needed to make it happen. It was quick. It was fun. And I think they came out pretty darned cute!

I had so much fun making them, I’m trying to figure out an excuse to make more…..!!


Hand Dyed Napkins

One of my friends made these napkins with the hand-dyed fabrics she purchased from me. I love them! Thanks for sharing Kathy F!

I have a few hand-dyed squares of fabric listed on, and more to come. I just love doing this…What would YOU do with a colorful square of this fabric? Bandana? Napkin? Quilt project?
