Jilly's Stuff

Jill Wilson or better known as Jilly was the second zibbeter to follow the zibbeters blog so she is my next feature!  I see Jilly here and there in the forums here on zibbet,  and she's always so nice! She does lots of "Stuff" as she calls it,  and I found this button crocheted bracelet a very interesting idea. 


She does very pretty work, and very reasonable prices!

Here's what Jilly says about herself :
I have recently retired as a custom framer at Michael's Arts and Crafts. My time there has been full of wonderful memories and stories of the art and handmade items that have been put in front of me for framing. These would inspire me to explore the vast regions of colour and creativity. The lessons learned there have been invaluable and have carried over into my own work. I can't begin to count the number of incredible treasures I have had the pleasure of working with. 
 
My mom lived through the bombings of London in WWII and learned to, "do and make do". I inherited a lot of her ideas, tips and ideals so recycling comes easily for me. I get enthusiastic when visiting our local thrift shops because it is always "the thrill of the hunt" for me. 


I now spend my time walking my beagle, buck, enjoying my family and home more, and constantly being iinspired by all I see.




I absolutely love these adorable pin cushions ! I so wish my grandmother was still alive, 
 she would love to own one of these! 
Maybe my mom will get one for Christmas,  she has recently taken sewing up again!
Jilly's stuff doesn't stop at crocheted button bracelets and pin cushions,  she has all sorts of very 
neat "Stuff"  like this......
 beautiful neck cowl, it's very girly and would spruce up any
winter coat not just a ski jacket!



If you see Jilly in the forums around Zibbet,  or if you shop at her lovely shop, please tell
her you saw her here!!

Here's where you can find her:
