Sewing Room Makeover - embroidery floss

The long procrastinated, much dreaded embroidery floss project has begun. Will I be able to tame this beast...

Stay tuned for more of my sewing room de-cluttering and organizing mania. I'm promising myself I will have my perfect sewing room by September!

1000 Etsy Sales...Almost!

WOW! Looking at my Etsy shop sales, it looks like I'm only 23 away from a huge milestone that I've been working towards: the big 1000! I think when that number is hit, we need to celebrate with a Fat Cat Giveaway! Just not sure what that giveaway will be yet. Or course there will be a Fat Cat involved though. Stay tuned for more news soon...

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to every father out there! And that includes fathers of furbabies, of course!

(My dad 1968)

 (My father and I approximately 1985.)

Unfortunately, my dad passed away in 2001. I think about him everyday. I miss and love you dad. I hope you're proud of me.

Sewing Sewing and More Sewing...Part 2 - Custom Orders

Along with reorganizing my sewing room and getting new pincushions styles made, I managed to knock out a ton of custom requests!

A Day of the Dead cat in a new dress color.

 A Bollywood dancer, which I really didn't want to give up. I love her!

A furry angel. 

 A book lover cat complete with bookworm.

And a team of tennis playing cats.

Whew, it's been a busy couple of months! But I wouldn't have it any other way...

Sewing Sewing and More Sewing...Part 1 - New Pincushion Styles

Time is flying this year! Man, it'll be Christmas before we know it!

I've been busy sewing some new pincushions and re-organizing my sewing room. I was hoping to be done with it already and be able to show off some pictures but alas, it is still in disarray. 

But...I did get some new pincushion styles completed at least!

The long awaited dog. I will admit, I held off doing this one for as long as I could. I felt it was a betrayal to my Fat Cats. But it's done, I did it and I don't feel too guilty about it. So here's the first Pudgy Puppy!

And a pirate pig, because well why not? I'm also working on a viking pig as well.

Another long awaited cat: A Zombie! 

Hope you like them! Many more to come before the end of the holiday season. And if you ever have suggestions for Fat Cats you'd like to see, just pass them along to me!
