 thanks for all of the nice words on that creepy childhood shrine. It wasn't meant to be creepy at all, but you know how sometimes a piece gets away from you and goes in an entirely different direction than you had intended This one completely had a mind of it's own.


I have one teeny tiny complaint, Miss C, and that is you didn't sign your work. So the next time we trade something (inchies, altered puzzle pieces, fabric), you must send me your autograph so I can attach it to the shrine.


Ha! I never think of that...I will send you a bunch of signatures and you can credit me with everyone else's work as well.

I should have said that the two spools and the buttons that support the arms in that piece came from an antiques market in austria..I scored a great old sewing box full of notions...

O o o o the spoooooools. Mini houses, mermaids and creepy childhoods. I simply love it.

Yes, we really should sign our work....but we will have to become famous by our Craftster names so all our Craftster friends can recognize us. And bandy our names about at parties.

lindy, you've done it again and made a spectacular shrine, this time with spools! I love it.
The wee fairy cottage and all that fibery goodness is adorable! I'm head over heels for merbaby and her sequined tail, and the childhood shrine is awesome. I've got to go back and really admire everyone's handiwork. And then Pin them all.
