How long?

May 19, 2011

How long has it been since I’ve sat down at my sewing machine and chugged something out??? Hmm. . . I think a little over 3weeks. Isn’t that insane? When I took up this hermit hobby, I would sew at least once a week. I tried to do what Mrs. Brooke suggested and hit my machine on Friday nights. But May is killing me and pulling me in every direction possible. And not sewing in making me into a grumpy monster. Something about the hermit hobby makes me super relax. Hopefully June will be better. . .but I think since it’s summer, I’ll be running around outside chasing cats or something.

The SMQG (Salt Modern Quilt Guild) decided to do a swap for May. Pincushions.

I fired up the ole’ machine and chugged away.

Pincushion Sneak Peek for SMQG

I wanted to incorporated as much colors as possible. The ribbon is to hold your small picker, scissors, n’ whatnot. I stuffed it with cotton n’ rice. The rice gives it some weight. It kind of turned out wonky, like the corners aren’t all matched up but still good. Did a lil’ embroidery stitch around the edges. I couldn’t help putting some Sherbet Pips in there. What do you think?

    Cute. I’d be happy to call it mine.

    That’s pretty much the cutest pin cushion I’ve ever seen. And I’d suggest setting aside a different night of the week to do your sewing, that way you do it but you still have fridays free to spend time with me!

    Try Tuesday. I’m busy on Tuesdays anyway. 😉
