Scrappy ... strippy ... sewing!
A hunting we will go!

Progress on the pincushion!


Ok ... I have an excuse for totally forgetting to post my pix about the pincushion round robin ... I had over 300 visitors to the Cottage in the last day or so! The quilting industry's annual Spring trade show is being held in Minneapolis this year and we've been inundated with people coming to White Bear Lake to see the town. We had two full tour buses today ... so I'm feeling a little bit nuts. But here's the start to my pincushion using Joanne's base that I got in the mail. She wants a Fall theme and its been fun deciding what to put on it. Here's auditioning a few things to see how they look.

And here it is with more stuff added! I thought it needed some colors so added little bittersweet flowers ... later I connected them with a vine but you'll see what I did when Brenda shows what she's adding ... I was in such a hurry to get it in the mail that I forgot to snap a final picture! And that one was barely dropped into the mail slot when the next one arrived! Yi yi yi ... they're coming fast. So Pat Sloan's the next one on the work table. What should I do?
