Last Few

I used up more zippers that I had in my cubbyhole... (I bought packets of 10 for $2 in various colours)... on these last few TriAngle Pouches. I used lots of different fabric colours too... so these will be really handy to have in the gift box. I can always add a pincushion, another bag or tools to make a very usable gift.
The FREE "pouch" pattern is over HeRe on my web page under CRaFTy.
Thanks Wendy... for having us over at Friday Night Sew In...over HeRe.

I added 4 pouches to my challenge list too.

ALMosT DoNe...

I was working on a Christmas Tree Skirt for DD#2 & after adding the "snow" around the bottom this week... I have finished the top. I am off to a retreat next month so this is one project I will take & hopefully get it sandwiched & quilted while there. That's the plan anyways...
For now... it's packed away with the backing & batting all ready to go.

I EnJoY...

making these little cuties. So much so... I made a few more.
Into the gift box they go... either to give away or to donate to the "Novocastrian Quilters Guild" Fete.

A GiFT or Two...

It was my friend SHEZ... from over HeRe... birthday this week... so of course I made her up a parcel.
It included a matching "triangle pouch" & "pin cushion" set.
HaPPy BiRTHDaY Shez...

I also needed a TriAngle pouch in my cubbyhole... kinda like a GiFT to myself...
but my power cord went from being stored in a plain box... to a pretty "pouch"... much better!

And as a bonus... it was made from my scraps... WiN WiN...

PinCusHioN PaRaDe

I have quite a collection of pincushions... & I just LoVe each & every one of them too.
Some have been received as swap gifts... some gifts from friends... a few made by my brother... a couple from me to me... some even purchased at a local FeTe or Guild.
No matter how I accumulated them... they sit with pride of place in my cubbyhole.
I have grouped them together so you can get a better look.
Hope you EnJoY my PaRaDe...
If you would like to see more pretties...
just click on over to HeRe.
Some you can eat...
Some with Flowers... 
 Some are odd shapes...
A few are animals...
Some are  w-e-l-l  used...
And some are in hiding... bit shy I think...

And finally... NOT an ugly pincushion... as my big bro made this one...
BuT perhaps somewhat unwanted in a sewing room... 
the "mouse" ...
not the pin cushion... lol

FiNaLLy

This pretty purple "PiN Me" Pin Cushion has been finished.
That's what I was working on at FNwF.

I want to join in the Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade with Ida from My Sister Made Me Do It blog... over HeRe... so it seemed like the perfect time to finish it off.
The PaRaDe starts tomorrow... Sept 4th...
My FREE pattern is now on my web page over HeRe. You will find it under CRaFTy... as a PDF.
Hope you like it & will make it as a gift to either yourself or a friend.

I have added it to my 2017 Scrap Busting Challenge list as well.
