I decided to take a break from the quilt I have been working on and make some fun stuff.
I have a Pinterest Board titled, A Place To Stick It. I”m sure it would not take to much effort to figure out what the board is all about...
See that blue one in the bottom right corner...a friend made me that one in those exact colours.
Today I decided to make a few of the fun things I had pinned.
This one “cracks me up” no pun intended.
This next one is prepped and ready for blanket stitching...I think it may be numbered among my favourites.
As you can see, some are cottons and some are wool, so I am getting a nice variety.
Some time back several different bloggers and professional quilters had a bit of a challenge going on. Make a pin cushion a day for 30 days. I thought it seemed like a fun idea but never seemed to get around to joining in the fun. Well I decided that I wanted to try a few of the ideas I had pinned and this is the result.
Carrie Nelson has a new book coming out that I may just have to add to my library.
Back at home in my sewing room I have a wicker basket filled with thimbles and pin cushions. I have donut pincushions, cupcake pincushions, scrappy ones, bottle cap ones, wrist ones, but I thought I could add a few more to the collection. I also have a little space left on my bookshelf and This book may be just the ticket to help me.
I closed things up around midnight, and wondered in to record the events of the day. That’s all folks. That’s as exciting as my Saturday nights get.
