It's not a usual day for a post from me, but I couldn't resist passing on this blog post I just read on Stash Manicure. You have got to check it out - Rae Ann has some of the best ideas for "renew, reuse, recycle" that I've ever seen!! And it's all stuff you've probably got already...... the best kind!!
And - my recipient got her package in the mail, so I can finally show off some pics -
giant pincushion sew along! All done by hand, most of it sitting on the boat enjoying the nice weather..... See the turtles swimming along the side? My friend loves turtles, and when I saw this fabric, it just screamed her name to me!! And the little turtle button nestled in the middle was languishing in my button box - he's so happy to be out in the open now!
I highly recommend this project if you need a little hand-work to take with you somewhere - it doesn't take a lot of fabric, skill or time - and it makes a great gift! Who can't use a really cute pincushion? Or, if you want to be creative like my granddaughter, it can be a hat, a frisbee, a cushion for sitting on....... the possibilities are endless!!
PS - keep an eye on the blog archive count - it's getting close to 100, and that means "giveaway time"!!
And yet another PS - my husband tells me that talking about something on my blog is likely to catch the eye of people with power - so here's my birthday wish list -
An AccuQuilt GO! fabric cutter!! If you haven't seen this all over blogland yet, check it out on the AccuQuilt website - it's amazing! As much fabric as we process for our ministry quilts, it would be a godsend..... So anyway, I'm entering giveaways like a crazy woman, trying to win one. If you know of a giveaway, leave a comment and let me know where it is - I may have missed it! (Do you think my hubby suggested this so I'd quit hinting to him about it? lol!)
And here's one giveaway going on for the GO! Cutter - check out A Quilting Life!
