I've decided this morning to show my pincushions some love.  These are bottle cap pincushions made with felt and embroidery thread.  Each are unique and up-cycled!  I started making them as a way to reuse my plastic bottle caps.  It's a fun little project I find relaxing and easy to do while watching evening tv with the fam.

I've collected so many caps I can't imagine they'll all be made into pincushions.   I need some suggestions! Please send me your ideas if you have any.

Setting up my new shop!

A-Rae's Barn Shop

         My workshop has increased in size tremendously. 
          I've gone from a closet in the spare room to this!  

I'm very excited for this transition.  I can now make a mess and leave it.   A joy every crafter I'm sure can relate to.   Not only is this my new workshop I'm planning to turn it into a small store by spring 2012.  I have a lot of work to make this happen.  

Views of the workshop: 

First project in the works is clearing out the shop for a floor.  The goal is concrete.   I'll post pictures once it's complete. 

Check back for updates on my progress.
