Welcome to the creative home of artist and maker Charlotte Lyons.

the grateful chick


For the early birds out there....the chicky pillow goes to Linda Sonia for her comment March 19 at 6:03 a.m. Maggie selected her name last night while we watched Dancing with the Stars. Thank you all, my lucky stars.

I am delighted to know that it has a new home! It was a pleasure to make and happily, I used up some of my odds and ends. The embroidered lavender flowers are actually grapes that were the stitched decoration on a fringed cocktail napkin. I turned them and the napkin upside down and ta-da...perfect. Seriously though, I could have made another pillow in the time it took to print and cut all those comment slivers for the bowl- not to mention the time spent hovering at the computer waiting for comments to come in. Not complaining though. I loved reading each and every one. Can you tell that I am a first-born child with an insatiable need for praise and encouragement that I am doing things correctly? Thanks for all the pats on the back.

The sun is out- slowly working on the 6 inches of snow and ice still here, but the birds are singing. I think it will be some time before we see any daffodils. Putting some new Easter-y things in etsy later today....like this. Come see.    xoC
