So what's happening today? Usual stuff on the agenda here. Yesterday though I took a bitty break and made something that I had obsessed over since I saw it on Pinterest. You probably already know about Amy, she's so talented and totally inspiring. I love everything she does, the clever projects, the fabric selections, the photography. Anyway... she made this adorable pincushion. I loved it when I saw it, but then I saw this one Pinterest with the little kitty face and just about died. Sandra writes about needing that feeling of instant gratification and that's just exactly how I felt.
Looking back I see I've totally forgotten that it was quilted and of course I had to mix it up with some mini pom poms which were practically impossible to stitch on. But I did it! And it was gratifying!
One of the things I did try was a different method of stitching it all together. You may already be familiar with this, but it was a life changer for me!
I wish I could remember where I saw this. I've spent quite a bit of time looking for the blog..it's totally genius. I usually leave a section around the edge open, then have trouble stitching it closed, especially on a circle, I get that lame edge spot. This split back totally circumvents that problem. I would love to credit the very smart stitcher who blogged this. GENIUS. Thank you!
And thank you guys, for hanging out with me!!! You're awesome! xo
