Now is the time in my life to do the things I have always wanted to do. . . . .
Hi, I am Carla Pickerill and I lived in a small town on the Monterey Peninsula with my husband Mark and my kitty Cali until moving to the Atlantic coast of Florida in order to be close to my family. I have worked on needle craft since I was a little girl from stamped cross stitch to embroidery, crewel work to counted cross stitch. I decided to try my hand at making pin cushions using fringe and ribbon/lace. I love the vintage look and strive to make each cushion distinctive. I use china cups and glass candlesticks. On a trip to Melbourne, Florida, I found depression glass candle sticks at a cute antique store in old town and now have made some into pincushions as well. I am now creating my own cross stitch and embroidery patterns and have trivets, coasters, and wine bottle aprons for sale. All my cross stitch items are hand stitched by me using quality embroidery floss and aida fabric. This fabric is completely washable in machine but lay flat to dry. You can also iron them on medium setting. E-mail me with any questions.
I have now expanded my shop to include fragrance diffusers and candle holders influenced by my love for the sea. I use sea glass, shells, and mosiac tiles to create unique and beautiful items that inspire peace and tranquility. So enjoy browsing through my shop and thanks for visiting!
I am a registered nurse who just relocated to the Atlantic coast of Florida from California in order to be close to my family. I have worked in healthcare for over 30 years and embroider and cross stitch as a way to relax after a stressful day. . . .
