Sew Bee Mine at Phoenixville Farmer's Market Saturday May 8th

It was so good to be back at the Phoenixville Farmer's Market this month after missing a whole year. It was also fun to watch so many people there wearing Sew Bee Mine masks that were picked up at the end of my driveway in the heat of the pandemic. I just took aprons for the first crack out of the gate, not sure of what to expect since people aren't really hanging out at the market like they used to since there is no music, places to sit, or food trucks. Fortunately many people stopped by for aprons. So next month there will be more offerings, including aprons. Making a new batch right now! 

I will be back the Saturday before Mother's Day (May 8th) with new one of a kind wearable art aprons, Virgin of Guadalupe shrines, collage art and fiber art. Looking forward to seeing everyone again, old friends and new.

Trying to add new things each day, until I can get back out in person

Latest endeavors are printing my own images onto fabric then machine quilting and embellishing with beads, sequins and decorative stitching.

Virgin of Guadalupe 12" Hanging Doll Ornament


I have been in love with the image of The Virgin of Guadalupe ever since seeing her while traveling throughout Mexico and Central America in the 70's.

Here is a 12" Virgin of Guadalupe Hanging Doll Ornament from a recent series of one of a kind dolls created with Robert Kaufman fabric. She can be purchased on Etsy 

I will be making more of these for upcoming spring events. Stay tuned for that.

Paper Dolls with Felt Christmas Tree Dresses

Mixed medium.....Paper doll with 
felt and sparkly netting Christmas tree dress.
This is a variation on an ornament made many years ago. 
LOVE that running feather stitch on the new sewing machine! 
A couple of these were made as gifts 
but next year will crank out a batch to sell.

Paper House Luminaries

 So happy that all the Christmas Cats found good homes, and a check for ALL the proceeds went to PACS! 

Now busy making tiny houses with LED votives inside to deliver to my local friends. Have also mailed some hither and yon. This one was made with handmade batik paper. Love the way the light shines through the wax areas, but the paper is a bit flimsy.

Double sided scrapbook cardstock makes more sturdy houses.

The PDF pattern was downloaded from Catheholden a few years ago, and just now getting around to making them. Have made about 30 so far. On a tiny house roll.

I was using the little clothespins but found them so fragile, easy to fall apart when opening and closing. So modified by punching tiny holes in the seam on either side of the top roof panel and threading with ribbon. I knotted both ends of the ribbon so it wouldn't come back through the punched holes when opening and closing the house to turn the light on inside. 

Ta Da!
