December 2006: A flower pincushion I made (this one's mine) after seeing some of the ones made around the 'net. I actually made several of these as Christmas gifts this year, but didn't take pictures before giving them away. The pattern was from Whip Up. And it whipped up pretty quick!

Here's a picture of the little dress I made my niece Allison when she was a little girl. I also made the buttons out of polymer clay.
