Happy Autumn everyone! I, for one, am thrilled that Summer has come to an end. Cooler weather is more my speed so HURRY UP cool weather and get here! 

I've been having a ball making these fun quilted zip pouches this past week! It all started when I made myself one to use as a sewing and knitting notions pouch.




 As you can see I made a few more and I have just placed them in the shop.

I'm cleaning out the studio!


I'm getting ready to move my studio so that means it is time to clean things out! I will be destashing a lot of my personal collection over the next few weeks and I am starting with these large, lovely porcelain cabochons. This is just the first batch, there will be more going up next week. They are one-of-a-kind and feature glazes that I will never be able to replicate. 

You can find them HERE.







These are just a few of what I have to offer. Find more in the shop HERE.

Though it isn't Halloween just yet it is never too early to bring out Headless Marie! I have more in the works but this one can be found in the shop HERE



I've also placed more earrings in the shop. This is just one of the lovely pairs that can be found HERE

And now for something completely different


Hello Everyone! 

I've been a busy little rabbit and doing something I haven't done in quite a while. Sewing! Way back in the days of old (we're talking 20+ years ago) I was an avid and prolific sewist. I made a great deal of my own clothing and was especially fond of quilting.  As I became more interested in other crafts my sewing took a back seat. It's been about 9 years since I last sat down to sew anything more than a repair here and there. Last month an Instagram friend hosted a sew-a-long and it inspired me to get out the old machine and see if I remembered how to do anything. Turns out it's a bit like riding a bike. It all came back to me and I was instantly reminded why I loved to sew all those years ago. So I made a dress and a few skirts and then I looked at my fabric scraps and thought, "I should really do something with them!" 

I am determined NOT to rebuild a fabric stash. I say rebuild because I recently unloaded boxes and boxes of fabric (enough to open a shop, for real) that I had hoarded for years. These days I like to limit my hoarding to yarn so I really don't want to accumulate any fabric. So I started making some fun little items that allow me to use up scraps and bits and make me incredibly happy in the process.

 

 These (and in the first photo at the top) are Crazy Quilted Cuffs! Not only do these snazzy cuffs use up little bits of fabric but I've used scraps of yarn as embellishment as well.




 The wedge style shown here can be sized to any measurement. I have not attached the second part of the pearl snap so all you have to do is tell me your wrist size and I can make it fit you.




 The other fun, scrappy item I've been making is these handy quilted needle keepers. What a great way to store all kinds of needles and to keep them in one place!






As you can see, my love of color doesn't end with my ceramic work. More color! More color! 




And lastly, there are three of my ceramic and needle felted wool pin cushions available in the shop. I am working on some new pieces soon, so more colors to come! 
 
Please visit my SHOP is anything strikes your fancy! 
Enjoy the summer!

Having a blast making new things!


 Hello one and all! It's been a little while since I made my announcement that I would no longer be making beads and jewelry components. Since then I've had many people asking just what I am going to be making. Well, the answer is simple: Whatever strikes my little fancy! 

Fist of all, I got some sassy new business cards.




 And I've been knitting away on some swatches to use as photo backgrounds for my buttons. Niffy idea, right?

 And speaking of buttons, I have just placed in the shop (the first of many-to-come) what I am calling Glazed To Order Buttons. The idea is that you can choose as many or as few as you want, in the colors you want and they will be glazed to order.  The photo above shows one design that is available now.

 And this is another design that is available. There will be many more to come as I will be adding them weekly. They can be found in the shop HERE.

I've also made new packaging for my buttons and I'm really pleased with it! (The bunny buttons are in the SHOP.) 




http://roundrabbitextra.bigcartel.com/category/shawl-pins

 Today I just unveiled my new porcelain and wood shawl pins. I make every inch of them myself, including cutting, staining and waxing the birch dowels. I couldn't be happier with the way they came out. Six of them have been listed in the SHOP and the rest will go in on Monday of next week. They also make great hair sticks!




Another super fun thing that I am really excited about are my new PINCUSHIONS!! How cute is this?! They are hand-built from porcelain and I needle felt the cushions from wool. I've had this idea for a while and it's really rewarding to see them coming to life. 




Here is another version. I have a few more made as well and they will all be going in the shop on Monday. 



http://roundrabbitextra.bigcartel.com/category/rainbow-button-sets

These rainbow sets of buttons are in the SHOP right now! 





 And finally, I am still making my own jewelry and have been able to get some new pairs of earrings in the shop. I haven't made the style above in quite a while. It's nice to see them again.





All of these earrings, and more, can be found in the shop HERE

That brings you all up to speed with what I have been up to lately. I have many more new products in the works and will be able to share them with you all very soon. It has been a true joy to be working in my studio these days and I feel like I made the best possible choice in the direction my work will take. I hope I can continue to make things that everyone will like!
