Saturday night sewing

Hello again. Let me tell you I had a blast sewing last night- I am happy to tell you all my Designer Mystery blocks from the Fat quarter shop are done so far, so come on, bring on block no.11- I'm waiting....

Sooo, while I'm waiting for block no. 11 to arrive I am working on pin cushions. I adore this cute ladybug from Rosalie Quinlan Designs- and I was surprised at how quick it was to make, now I'll bring it to the cabin to make the yo-yo's and add them, hey she needs those spots.... When we were kids we thought the spots told how old the ladybug was....

And here is another finish- I made the placemats months ago, but never got around to quilt and bind them. Well, now they are all done, and I sewed up a bunch of new coffemug coasters as well, and a basket to put them in, from Pink Penguin's tutorial.
And while we're talking about the fabulous Pink Penguin- I totally fell in love with this potholder, and I just HAD to buy it from her etsy shop. It is just adorable!

Well, I need to pack my bags and head up to the cabin. I'll make sure to bring a few stitchery projects along with my skis and sunsceen.

Have a wonderful Easter- I'll be back next Monday!
