I've Been Blogged About - Updated

I just received a note from Patsy that my jewelry is making an appearance on Tammy Tadd's "A Tadd More" Blog. How wonderful is that? Tammy, Miss Sherry and her staff are some of my best cheerleaders. My jewelry is available at Tammy's shop "Tammy Tadd Designs"and last Spring she added my jewelry to her booth while vending at the Chicago and Paducah shows. Tammy's quilt shop is located in Sycamore, IL. It is one of my all time favorite shops. If you are ever in the area make a point to stop in. You will love this charming shop and all the ladies who work there. I live 3 hours away and usually make it in 3 or 4 times a year.

The photo above was taken when I was getting pieces ready to send to Tammy for the shows. I still can't believe I sewed so many quilt blocks in so little time. It was fun to see everything spread out in one place.

For those of you new to my blog here is a bit of information about my pieces. My miniature quilt block jewelry is made with hand dyed fabrics which are foundation pieced to muslin. These block are then sandwiched between two pieces of glass and joined with lead free and nickel free solder. You can turn the jewelry over and see the stitching on the back. I use surgical steel ear wires on all of my earrings and the findings on my pendants are nickel free. You can follow this link to an earlier post about my jewelry and my favorite colorways.
