Little pincushions

A while ago I had found a tutorial about making little tiny pincushions from plastic lids. I can't find it right now, but will update the post with a link when I can. Here are two that I made. They are so simple, probably took about 5 minutes to make the pair. I need to save lids so I can make a bunch more. I think they would make great little gifts.

Mini Coin Quilt Swap

I miss my camera. Please please repair it quickly. My phone just isn't cutting it.

I participated in a mini Chinese coin quilt swap online. Here is the cure little mini I received from my partner. I just love it! She used blue and green, my favorite colors!

I mailed mine to her yesterday. It took me a little while to do because the first one I made I hated the quilting I did on it. I didn't know how to fix it, so I started over and made a new one with better quilting. It's not great, but better then the first one. I can't wait for my machine quilting class!

Lucky day continued

I also won a Jelly roll over at Patches And Pieces. I am very excited, and can't wait to think of a project to use it for. Thank you so much!

Lucky day!

March 29th was my lucky day! I came across a blog that mentioned some Easter giveaways. Like I usually do I entered just about everyone of them, but unlike normal I actually won!! I won't say how many I won until the items arrive because I don't want to spoil the fun.

Today the first one arrived! I was so excited to win this one at Red Geranium Cottage. This little quilt is absolutely adorable in real life. The quilting is so cute with little loops that turn into hearts every so often. I absolutely love it! Now I just need to find a nice place to display it. My boys were very excited by the candy and bunny. It all came packaged in a cute basket. Thank you so much for all these lovely goodies. Now I have another blog to read, because there are a lot of neat things to see over at Red Geranium Cottage, especially her sewing room!
