Shades Of Blue ~ My Second Creation ...

Hello my dear friends,

here I am back already and ready to share my next "Shades Of Blue" creation.

Again it is made with one of ye old pocket watch casings and it is one of my favorite things to make. I am sure you all know what that is, don't you?! I was so into wanting to start working on this piece that  ...

... I almost forgot to take a "before" photo of what I had chosen to use to make my newest pincushion. Gosh, I love this color China blue so much and I am not really one for colors so that says something.

Do you see the little blue rhinestone earring? That little blue sparkle is what made me want to do something in blue in the first place. My second creation of my "Shades Of Blue" theme is now finished and I am so excited for you to see it.

I called it simply but very appropriate ...

"Dance Til Midnight".

Why this name? ... My younger daughter Caylagh said that it reminds her so much of Cinderella's dress at the ball and that is why I chose to name it the way I did.

Here it is ...



Oh ... it turned out so lovely and it actually does remind me of Cinderella's dress too.
I hope you have enjoyed my newest creation.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit me here at Todolwen.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Hi Karen, Beautiful work! I love the idea of using pocket watches.
    btw congrats on seeing some of your work featured on a FB group.

  2. What a beautiful pincushion. It inspires me to get busy and also make one. I have a lot of jewelry pieces and two antiques watches that I can use. Thank you for getting my creative juices flowing.
