Hello!  I am writing to you all today to announce a new item, and section in my shop.

Recently I have made another cell pillow – this time for sale!  I love making these pillows because the top is entirely hand sewn.  I love just sitting at the kitchen table and puttering away at the stitches with my coffee and snack.  There is something so soothing about hand sewing.  The top is machine pieced onto cuddly felt and then the whole thing is sewn shut and stuffed.

As a scientist, I really think cells are incredible things.  They are absolutely so complex that I feel we may never know all their nuances.  Cells are these amazing little machines that make up each and every one of us.  I think they are beautiful works of art and it facinates me to study them.  Probably thousands of people, or more, study these little units will all our hearts and still we are so far from understanding their secrets.  Then of course there is further complexity where the cells assembly into tissues, and tissues into organs, and then into whole humans!! And then there are studies of human interactions, population studies!!  The excitement never ends!

Anyway,  here is your chance to bring a little excitement of science into your home.  Check out my Etsy shop for this brightly colored interpretation of a common mammalian cell.
