Sewing Tip Monday

Use a large seashell you've kept from a visit to the beach as a pin catch next to your sewing machine.

 This shape is perfect for pouring pins back into their container after collecting them during the quilting process.

I've also decorated pincushions with shells, and tossed them into my hydrangea bed to alkalize the soil. Since a beach is our family's favorite vacation destination, I never have a shortage of these souvenirs.

Happy Sewing ♥
