Small projects

new pincushion

I’ve been thinking I needed a new pincushion but wanted something interesting to work with.  When I came across this candle holder, I knew right away I had found what I was looking for.  It was a fun, quick project and turned out just the way I wanted.

And today I brought out these pretty little pieces of Jo Morton fabric that I bought way last year.  I want to use them for a small project. 

Right now I’m in the mood for a few small and simple projects.

Your new pincushion is so cute! I love making them too, although I only use my magnetic one - LOL! I've been on a kick making small quilts too - you should come by and take a look!

Oh I love your new pincushion! The little bird is adorable! Great fabrics too. ;-) I worked on smaller projects today and it felt great for a change. Have a happy Sunday!

The candle holder makes a unique pincushion. Sort of a spring/summer look with the bird.

That is awesome. I am in desperate need of a new pin cushion. You can take that as a hint if you are so inclined. Let me think now, a pin cushion is a tiny, little project. Just sayin'. . .
