A New Day

Yup, it's a new day and ...........ta-da.............a new swap!  (Like you expected something else???)  I should quit this stuff, really I should!  When in the world am I going to finish all that other stuff I have hanging over my head???  I mean, I have two lap quilts to do, a pattern to write (yes, you heard it here first) and I'm thinking perhaps two....or maybe three....commission wall hangings to start/finish.

So, am I completely crazy or what?  It's just that I LOVE making pincushions.  I LOVE using my tiny funnel and pouring that wonderful smelling Walnut Litter into those cute little things.  And after I stitch them closed they feel soo good in my hands!!!  Now......you realize I only need to make one for my secret partner, right?  Then, please tell my why I already have 6 done, with more ideas in my head that just won't leave......e-gads!  On top of that, I bought some of that Filo stuff to make pretty pin toppers today too.  Duh!!!!  Like I need more projects???  HELP!!!!!

Wanna see them????  I have one that I haven't photographed yet, but here are the rest:

Real Scrappy Pincushion

Circus Time Pincushion

Rainbow Star Pincushion

Rainbow #2 Pincushion

Guess that's only 4......I did make 5, 'cause one is exactly like the last one, only it's not centered and doesn't have french knots so I didn't take a picture of it so I really WAS telling you the truth!  The best one is the last one though, the one that's not even pictured yet...the 6th one.........and you'll have to wait for that one.  (In reality, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it so I think I will keep it for myself.)  Bad me!

Incidentally, thank you, thank you, thank you for all your millions of comments last time.  I was blown away by your wonderfulness about my little doll quilt.  I am so anxious to send it off to my secret partner in a few weeks.  I do have a few more doll quilts that I must finish yet for angel quilts.  I just remembered.........eikes............I better get to work!!!

I love pincushions too! Made 5 for our guild swap. Actually made more but didn't want anyone to think I was totally crazy. Glad to know I am not alone in my obsession with pincushions.

Fabulous pincushions - but I'm seriously coveting the coffee mug in the Stash Manicure photo. Where, oh, where did you get that??

More wonderful make-me-smile-when-I-see-them things! I'm curious Carol - what is Filo? blessings, marlene

gill said...

I love your pin cushions! I see you stuff them with walnut shells - why??? presumably it's readily available or do you crush your own???
I've never seen it in the UK

sophie said...

I Love love LOVE the last pincushion design--probably because it reminds a bit of the much larger Stacks blocks we made for the here. I think I'm going to have to make one like it for me, me, me ;-)

Thanks for the inspiration.

Sonia said...

Awesome! very cute pincushions. :)

were you in Rainbow Girls? I wonder because you have red orange yellow green blue indigo and violet. Most rainbow dont have the indigo.

I was a rainbow girl, but sadly it was activity I'd rather forget.

Enjoy seeing the use of your colour.
