Oh my-my sewing room is a mess. It’s been that way for about a month now. I know I need to get some work done on it..but there is just no time so I’ve made a new pact with myself. Every time one of the kids calls me, I put my phone on speaker and tidy up a few things. No I’m not making much progress but at least I am doing something…right?? If the saying “every little bit counts” is true then hopefully my small efforts will someday be noticed.
While I was unearthing things I found a pincushion I had intended on making for Kelli but never finished. In a bag of scraps I bought at the thrift store there was a some orphan blocks that looked like chickens. Well I intended on taking them and making into pincushions. I got the one for me done but the one for Kelli got buried.
Last night I decided enough was enough. Rather than try to find a place for it-it was just time for me to finish it.
Can you believe it took me only five minutes to do it once I decided to do it?? Oh why oh why do I do that??
The backing is a really soft almost corduroy fabric.
While I was unearthing I found something else!!! I am so embarrassed by this….I found the book that I was suppose to pick a winner from and giveaway!! I think when I was cleaning for Easter I must have grabbed a pile of stuff and set it in my sewing room on the cutting table…and then it was buried and GONE. I am so sorry. Anyway it the book from Cico Books, Super-Cute Pincushions by Katie Haxell.
The winner is Rochelle who said, “I could really use this book because I only have one! On Pinterest I have many, though. :) Would love to win. Thanks so much!”
