I am a member of the EtsyNEAT team – Etsy Needle Arts Team – and the team has a challenge over 2 months to create something in line with the chosen theme.  This time around the challenge theme was “Natural History”.  A very broad topic!

Etsy itself describes this theme as “Woodland forest themes and animals, namely birds, owls, squirrels, hedgehogs, chipmunks, bunnies, butterflies, feathers, nests, eggs, acorns, leaves, trees, branches, woodgrain, and natural colors”

Here is my entry

Owl, rabbit, mushroom mini pincushions

I have been very impressed with the other entries, as shown here.  Its going to be tough to choose a favourite!


Earlier this week, Julie-Anne was involved in a terrible plane accident.  Sadly, her daughter and the pilot perished and Julie-Anne herself is in intensive care fighting for her life.

Julie-Anne is a much loved leader of the DUST etsy team – the Down Under Street Team.  As in the past when terrible things have  happened, our team has banded together to help in a small way by donating the proceeds of items in our shops to Julie-Anne’s family.

Please have a look at this constantly changing treasury as things are selling fast and pass it on to you friends.

‘For Julie-Ann…’ by uniquedichroic

100% of the sale of all items in this treasury are being donated to the family of Julie-Ann Twigg.

I do love a beautiful Etsy treasury.  I really admire those who take the time to ensure a consistent look and feel in a common theme.

Tonight I was in the mood to have a go myself and this is the result.  Hope you like it.
