Yoo hoo to 100 Year Old Maker GRAM TESS and Skippy Doodle Designs...

Do you know these amazing women?
Here's Sue Parker and her 
100 year old Grandma Tess -- 
her assistant
 at Skippy Doddle Designs!
They have a wonderful bond and share a love for making things....


Both agree, it's a fine thing to make something useful...
 ...and perhaps there's nothing finer than to find the humble worth in old bits and cast aside lovelies and make them anew...

Sue truly does just this with her 
 Skippy Doodle Designs...
and yes, Gram keeps busy and useful herself by sitting with Sue, cutting, sewing a bit...
 
She loves how Sue collects so many little things and then celebrates them in her wondrous pin keeps, charming pin cushions and all sorts of notion-y fun...
and we do too!

Just take a peek at these latest arrivals and you'll see what I mean.
 (...here's Gram working on sachets and pin keeps for the Nashville show... 
you will see her work tagged GRAM 100)

 
 I love that she is still sewing...
I love that she taught her granddaughter to sew so many years ago...

Sue makes things for fun, to bring her pieces, and to celebrate her love for re-purposing cast off things...

I hope you agree with me that her work is wonderfully sweet...Her Gram is proud of her and would tell you all herself if she met you!!!



Most of Sue's  pin keeps are $28 & $48 and come in two sizes... we've just loaded a wonderful new batch to the site...


And small pin cushions start at just a few dollars each...


Sue...I celebrate you and your style
...you know I admire you AND Gram!!!

xxoo Jen
