Fun little projects

A Busy Week

I thought that January would be a month when things would slow down. So far, that hasn't happened for me.

During the past week, I did find time to make a few smaller projects.
Bird Pincushion      made with  Moda Fabric-  Mill House Inn  

( Notice that I used some gingham for Amanda,  The Patchsmith, and polka dots for Amy,  Amy Made That!, to make them  happy!)

"Tea Time" for bird, sitting  on her coordinating  Elegant Teapot Table Topper
The bird is great for using scraps from favorite projects.

And, one evening,  I made this little Cathedral Window pincushion .
A Cathedral Window   pincushion for February

The plumpish bottom side

Last week,  Amy , of Amy Made That!   made these beauties

That happened to be a coincidence.  

Ok, I admit  that I copied her! 
(These little pincushions are  so addictive !)

Sometimes little projects, that can be made in a single evening, can be so satifying!! 

I'm off to my sewing room!


  1. Sometimes we are only able to carve out 30 minutes or so for ourselves and these two projects are perfect for those moments. Love the gingham belly on the bird by the way :-)

  2. I do understand your time issue! But aren't those small projects wonderful when time is limited? I have my bird all cut out. I'm planning on sewing it together tomorrow night. I can't wait! And I LOVE your pincushion!!

  3. That is a fabulous pincushion! I love the fabrics you chose. And what is up with that sweet little mat underneath it? Is that one of those mini design boards I saw somewhere? Adorable!

  4. I love all these little projects, thank you for sharing them with us xx

  5. I really am in awe of your pin cushions. They are lovely. http://openbeauty.blogspot.com/
