Pin Cushions

I found the tutorial for these Pin Cushions at whip up quite a while ago. I had the fabric circles cut out and sitting in a zippy bag on top of my microwave forever. I freely admit to having the worst habit of starting something, getting it all organized and ready and then just stopping.

I'm trying to make a concentrated effort in stopping this annoying habit. This week I have cleaned out the front hall coat closet that my husband has been begging me to do for weeks and finished these pin cushions. At least now I have a few cute little hostess gifts at the ready!

In the back ground is the December 2008 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine published by Better Homes and Gardens. I've started working on the quilt in the back ground. I have about 150 of the 348 flying geese blocks completed so far.

Mum and Dad hope you enjoy your Florida Thanksgiving tomorrow! XOXO
