Catching up

Okay, I've got myself set up here temporarily while I wait for my new keyboard.

First off, the fabulous pincushion that I got in Linda's Pincushion Swap from Nicole. So useful...I love that I can put my pins in the top and it has the handy little space inside for my threads, scissors, etc. Thanks so much Nicole! Oh, be sure to check out the adorable measuring tape case she made...follow the link to the tutorial on another blog. More stuff for my 'to do' list!

Next, I finished my July tote bag for the British Quilt List challenge. I feel like an overachiever, finishing before the last day of the month! LOL.

Love the bag!! And what a clever idea for a pin cushion. It's hard to put a pincushion in with your other stuff for handwork, but this way, it's just the lid. So smart!

What a gorgeous pincushion!

The tutorial on dyeing fabric with shaving cream is good. I'm not sure I'm ready to try it yet though.
