Finally made one for me!

Hey guys, sorry I've been MIA.  I've been a little under the weather. I might be posting a  little sporadically the next couple weeks, but I'm here!

There hasn't been much sewing going on. But I did finally decided to make myself one of Elizabeth Hartman's Pincushion Organizers. I've been wanting one of these for a long time, so I finally just put it at the top of the list. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Although after I took this photo I realized my raindrop print on the cushion is upside down! I seriously wasn't paying attention.


One addition I will be making is to put that grippy stuff from Joann's on the bottom of the pincushion. I think it's meant for the bottoms of kids socks? My sewing/dining room table is very polished and slick and when I hang the bag on the organizer it slides off the table! So I'll be using it like this for a while.


And in other sewing news, I got the girl to wear her knit dress for Father's Day. Here she is modeling it with my shoes.

The organizer looks great! I was just about to order some of the Prince Charming in laminate to make a bag - love that line! The little one looks so cute (did she give you the shoes back?)

Sorry to hear you've been unwell - hope you're feeling better now! I love that pincushion organizer you made, fantastic fabrics!!! I love, love, love that little knit dress, so cute!

Oh - and BTW, any chance you can do your 4x5 questionnaire today? We're down to less than 10 people to fill it out, and I think we might just be able to get an early start if the rest of the group finishes the questionnaire! :) Here's a link for you -https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFg2dFlOQ1pQSExxWXE5dG5ocG9KaFE6MQ

Fabulous job on the pincushion organizer, but so sorry to hear you've been under the weather.

If it's any consolation, my kiddo randomly refuses to try on stuff, too. Well, not so randomly - her resistance is directly proportional to my desire, even if I try to be all nonchalant, SHE KNOWS when it means something to me. :)
