After I finished my signature blocks, I made a super scrappy Wild Flower Pincushion using the 1/2" hexagons I started on when I thought my swap pincushion was a flop. I ended up sending my partner the second red and white pincushion, so I guess I'll just keep this one. (Yea!) It's filled with walnut litter (crushed walnut shells) and I love the weight. I bought a seven pound bag in the bird section at Petsmart. The body of the pincushion is linen. I'll take a better photo after I retrieve my camera.
My birthday was Sunday. My mom made me some yummy cupcakes. Shea assures me I don't look my age, but she may just be saying that to make me feel better. She told me her friend thought I was "like 29", so that made my day! Yea, I was 29. Almost 10 years ago! This year, I decided to be extremely blunt with my sometimes gifting-impaired husband, bless his heart. I told him he had two choices, a new dress form, or FQs of AMH's Little Folks voile. He said he thinks I have enough fabric (I have no idea what he's talking about!?!), so he wanted to get me a new dress form. I've had about four dress forms, but I've never had a really nice one. My favorite dress form to date was the one he helped me make from duct tape in 1993 when I was in college. I just threw it out last summer when we moved so I've been without for almost a year and I really miss having one.
We had to order the dress form, so I picked up my own gift on Saturday so he could give me something on Sunday. I'm so thoughtful like that! A 24 pack of Sharpies with bonus Caribbean colors! Woo hoo! Sharpies rule!
Thank you for the kind comments on the cheater print. I really hope it prints up nicely. The voting at Spoonflower doesn't start until July 7th, but I'll post about again when it's time.
Have a great week!
