Pin It Winnings...

Recently I enjoyed this blog hop.  I am amazed at the wonderful sharing of such creative people and all the inspiration and how-to's for making pincushions.  You can imagine how surprised and excited I was when Kathy of Kwilty Pleasures (click on the link to visit her blog) notified me I had won her give-away. Hooray!!!

Not only had I won her give-away, her pincushion was unique and one of my very favorites.  She made a pincushion in a little frame that can stand alone on its own.  How fun is that!  This is mine now.  Sew very cute with cherry fabric inside a little silver toned frame.  Now you have to know I am going to pick up some little frames at my local $1.29 store and then I can make these for gifting to my friends and family.  Bonus is they are easy to mail...a pet peeve of mine...postal rates and lack of service.  With what I spend on mailings I cannot understand how the post office system is broke!  Oops, on my soapbox...I am climbing down now.

Thank you sew very much Kathy.  Your generous package of red fabrics and adorable little fabric blocks of cute sayings you included in with my framed pincushion is divine.  I will definitely be using these.  With the little sayings and the matching fabrics I am thinking mug rugs.  Another cute gift item I have not made...yet.
I not only enjoy blog hops for inspiration, I also like "meeting" creative talented people who participate.
Our days and nights are very much cooler.  Lots more windy days.  Leaves falling before they can even turn colors.  Cedar seed pods are "raining" down everywhere.  We have at least a dozen huge Cedar trees that are lining our driveway and are in our front landscape.    They are truly messy but ever so forest glorious.
Falling into Autumn is in full swing here.
What are you working on in your creative time?  Are you making something new to you or something tried and true?  I am vacillating over several projects and need to make up my mind and get busy.  I have some UFO's hovering that I am really needing to complete or pass along.

  8. Congrats on the win! I love the idea of a pin cushion in a frame. I do a stitching group at my home and we exchange gifts for Christmas. This would be a great idea. Thanks for sharing it. Sure wish I would have seen that party. I love and collect pincushions. I am a lover of red so I am drooling over your fabric wins. Can't wait to see what you make. I am working on a quilt that I have had the fabric for 7 years. Better late than never I guess.

  11. What a charming idea for a pin cushion and that gorgeous red fabric. Our weather has been very nasty today. 60 mile an hour winds, deluges of rain and power outages. Where did summer go. I am NOT ready for this. Oh well back to painting more birds.
