Wow, it's Wednesday again already! Time flies when you are having fun? That's what they say anyway, they also say that time flies the older you get, hmmmm. Fun? Getting older? which is it? I think it's a combo.
Not much was accomplished this week, I mostly wanted to post before it was to late to show you my pincushions. Blueberry Lane Designs found some old copies of Lynette Anderson's Pincushion book and she is going to have a little draw. They thought it would be fun to see everyone's pincushions and of course your favorite. So here ya go, it's not a very good picture but the whole gang is there.

The second picture is my favorite. My now 16 year old granddaughter made this little pillow when she was about 6. It was her only sewing experiment. (there's still time) Anyway she was so proud of her little pillow and her buttons just about popped when I asked her if I could use it for a pincushion. I can't part with it. I keep it pinned to the end of my ironing board. Be sure to hop on over to Blueberry Lane Designs and put your name in for the draw. I'm off to the office, it's only Wednesday! (Funny how I complain about time flying and then wish away the week days for the weekend!)
