I once took a punch needle class and found out just how difficult the craft really was...needless to say, I never tried it again. LOL
I just KNOW that needle felting is probably even more difficult than punch needle, so I have never dared to give it a try. But I do LOVE needle felted items and fell in love with Keri Mae's exquisite creations!
There are lots of things to be found in Keri's shop...amigurumi, purses, and so much more, but I wanted to focus on the needle felted critters.
Aren't they just the CUTEST things????
So, tiny and well-formed! You can easily see the joy and care that Keri takes in each and every one of them.

Anne created my avatar, my shop banners, and even my revolving ad (at the top of my blog)! She is one TALENTED lady!!! Her prices are INSANELY reasonable!
I had custom ordered banners and avatars for all the major holidays, vacation, and when I'm at craft shows. I wouldn't shop anywhere else!!!
All of the samples, and many more, are available for viewing on her website.

VaBeachQuilter DeStash is the featured shop this week.
I have a 150+ different fabrics and other destash items listed. It's a great place to get quality fabrics at a reduced price. Most of the fabrics retail at $9 - $11 a yard, but I have them listed at $8 a yard.
If you're looking for something specific, let me know. I have tons of fabric that I haven't had a chance to list yet.
My shipping charges are EXACT. Most of the fabric's shipping might seem a little "high" but once I print your shipping label (or gone to the post office, if it's an international order), I IMMEDIATELY REFUND any over-charge in the shipping costs. How many shops do you know that do THAT??? Not too many, we bet.
All fabric is available in smaller cuts, if desired. The prices will be adjusted accordingly and a private listing will be set for you.
Follow me on Facebook fan page, and Twitter to be among the first to know when new fabric and supplies have been listed.
January's blog giveaway prize is posted, in the upper-left hand corner. Just leave a comment to enter the giveaway... Psst... you can enter as many times as you want.
The past few winners have entered multiple times and had their chances increased each time and it seems to have paid off for them. :o)

You can't help but ooh and ahh, as soon as, you enter the "Nacyanne Quilt Works" shop. You'll find yourself smiling while you look at one beautiful piece after another.
Nacyanne's carries more than just lap and baby quilts though. There is a gorgeous selection of table toppers, mini quilts that can double as "mug rugs", and beautiful cell phone cases.
I forgot to include one of the cellphone cases in the collages, so here's one a pic of one:
Almost every other item ships FREE, too!
Make sure that you "like" Nacyanne's on Facebook and follow on Twitter. Then you'll always be among the first to see the newest beautiful item listed and to learn about any upcoming sales/promotions. Visit her blog to catch a glimpse into the life of a quilter.
