I’ve just shipped another batch of scrappy, quilty pins to Brandy in beautiful BC!
You may remember the first batch? Well, it was great fun to get to do round two – even with those teensy-tiny, hand-cut red hearts! Ack!*
If you are a quilter, Brandy has a great website with a blog, online store and instructional videos, and you can even listen to archives of her podcast, Canadian Quilt Talk (perfect for listening to whilst quilting, I imagine!)
Quilter on Fire
*I kid! That’s the best part!
Several months ago, I had the opportunity to create a large order of custom domino pins for a friend (and ex-Winnipegger), Brandy Maslowski.
All of the pins feature fun, “quilty” sayings and are available on Brandy’s website – Brandy Lynn Designs
I had so much fun creating these pins – especially the special “I ❤ CQT” pins with cut-out red hearts. They were a little more work, but I love, love, love how they turned out.
Several weeks ago, I was invited to “Be Well Connect” – another fantastic event held by my friends at the Manitoba Canola Growers. Since I had shown up empty-handed to the last couple of events, I figured it was time to bring along a little representation of what I do, to share with the group.
After about 4 seconds of thought, I decided to make a batch of my domino pins for the group. There was no question that they would be canola yellow, and the “Be well!” tagline was already written for me; all I had to do was round up some dominoes and put them together.
Everybody likes getting swag (and especially something handmade), but I was still very happy to see everyone’s reaction to the pins. It was a wonderful evening, but being able to share my craft with such a warm and generous group of people made if just that much more special for me.
I haven’t been making the domino pins for craft sales for the past two years, but I am always accepting custom orders of 3 pins or more. Please contact me for details. Custom pins are 3/$18 (plus shipping, if applicable).
