Works in Progress

I´m finishing a Christmas `thingy´ which is a surprise for my three grandchildren.  All top secret and I´m in a great rush to get it finished and off to Denmark where they live.  I can´t show anything here for a week or so until they receive it, but here is a peek of the materials used.

Doesn´t look very interesting does it?    but  it will..

A few more goodies. This week I have also been working on my mermaid pouches which make pretty gifts for Xmas.  This blue one is a scissor holder.

This larger shape is handy to hold a couple of cosmetics or tissues.

The reverse side  is also embroidered. and the insides are lined with silk or satin and I add a few tiny beads to the metal clasps.

Here is a close-up.

 Thank you for visiting, until next time.


  1. I love, love LOVE the mermaids! They are exquisite. Your work is beautiful.
    Looking forward to seeing what becomes of the felt and trims for the grandkids.

  2. Do you sell any of these little pouches? They're beautiful and so unique! I would love to know about the possibility of purchasing one.

  3. Hi Linda, yes I do sell the pouches. I have sent you an e-mail.

  4. Oh could send me an email, I would love to buy one of those pouches
    shelleyfaythe@msn.com love your work

  5. Dear Sheryl, firstly, my phone keeps trying to autocorrect your name to Sherlock! Lol, I was wondering if you could tell me what type of fabric you used for this and whether you treated it yourself to get the colour variations? Many thanks what a stunning piece. I've seen a few of your mermaid purses. I'm a writer/blogger and I also do a lot of craft myself. Especially beading, cross stitch, card making and crochet. I review monthly subscription boxes and a large following on etsy and pinterest. I'm sure you have enough already bit if you need anybody to pattern test, write informed reviews/recommendations for any items you want to send please let me know. I particularly like to be an advocate for home-made needle art which is also as functional as it is beautiful.
