This And That

I haven't been crafting on my sewing machine as much, but I have been doing other little things.
This tea cup rose pincushion was meant to go to my sweet Mama, but alas, Sir Punkybritches dropped it on the floor and it broke! *insert super upset Mama face here*

I've been building my button collection! You can honestly never have too many of them, because you can use them all over the place. I have a ton of vintage ones, the littlest jar is all vintage. I rarely pay full price for such things.  Thrift stores are where it's at!

Painted container that holds our summer straws. I love the look of opaque glass but it's expensive if you can manage to find it. So, I followed one of the thousands of tutes out there and made one of my own.

This  sweet little hedgehog is destined for a  baby shower in the near future. :)
I followed the lovely tute over at matsutakeblog .

Seriously how cute is she!!?

I love these little projects that don't take much time but are so sweet when you are finished with them.  I can't wait to gift her along with some other little crafty things I have in the works.
I love when people have baby girls. It's fun to think of little pink ruffled things!

And, yes, this was a rather rambling post. That's how my brain has been functioning lately! I can't wait to get back into crafting and sewing full swing! I have some other things in the works that hopefully I will be able to share again soon. Have a beautiful, glorious day!
