52 Week Challenge - Week 20

Not much to show this week.  There were some false starts and stops along the way, such as discovering that a quilt in the final quilting phase has a backing cut too short.  I will have to piece a portion, which is annoying.

Also, I did start a really cute baby quilt with the Amy Schimler fat quarter set I recently purchased, but it is far from done.  The only thing actually finished is this little spool pincushion. 

This is an experiment.  I like the tiny tomato style top with the button, and the idea of wrapping novelty thread and beads, but it just don't have the balance right yet.  It is a work in progress.

So, what have you been up to this week?
Let's get busy,


  1. Cute pincushion! I didn't know it was a spool under there. :)

    Stopping by from the etsy blog team. Come say hi at my little blog sometime. :)

  2. I think that is a cute pincushion! I have not created any new designs this week. I hope to mail off everything by tomorrow and use the weekend to create.

  3. That is cute. Maybe some spiky green leaves instead of a flower underneath?

  4. Here's to a week that improves as it goes along! The pincushion is adorable. Maybe a vine that wraps up from the base?

  5. Hi I am stopping by from the etsy blog team. Whenever I see a pin cushion it reminds me of my grandmother. She had a strawberry shaped pincushion that I would arange the pins so that they would spell out a message to her. Stop by and say hi some time.
