Got 2 New Petite Bythes from Hong Kong!

So excited! Petite Blythes are usually so expensive, but I did find an Ebay seller in Hong Kong that is selling "gently used" ones without clothing. Piper has enough cute clothes to share so I decided to get 2. The one above is called Marmalade. She's supposed to have pants on with that top (it's not just a crazy short dress), but I'll post some more with her fully clothed.

This one is originally called "Kitchen Queen", but I've decided to name her Bernadette, after the girl on The Big Bang Theory. I believe if she spoke she would sound like Bernadette. More pics to come!

Made a Weighted Pin Cushion using pennies

I desperately needed a heavier pin cushion. I hate when I only have one had to grab a pin and the pin cushion doesn't let go of the pin and then tried to travel with the pin. (Please imagine the beginning of this infommercial with pathetic looking people trying to grab pins and knocking pin cushions onto the floor in frustration). So, I used this little wire basket and after sewing 2 egg shaped circles of fabric together I made a hole in the bottom of the "egg" and filled it with stuffing and then about 50 pennies. Then I used fabric glue to cover the hole with a patch. After setting the egg in the basket I wound metallic thread around it to secure the egg to the basket and stuck an angel doohicky in.Voila!
