a little play

I could not decide on a pincushion
and knew everyone was right
those are pretty but are they practical
so I sewed a few squares together
and made this long pincushion
I love it! so simple but very useful 
by the side of the machine

and while I was sewing squares, I missed my machine
and sewed my little heart away
just grabbing squares in "lights" and some blacks and pinks
and made this
not sure why
I just HAD to
of course Dunks had to get into the picture

there now you can see more
it is a small little quilt top
I may add some UFO blocks to the outer edges
kind of like a border
we will see
you can see some surprises of squares
that were pieced as well
they all went into this little quilt

and Dunkin wanted more attention so hmmmmm
lets grab that quilt away from Mom
and wear it
Can I go out for halloween as a quilt?

Mom get this off my play house.
too much shade

what have YOU been up to?
I SHOULD be cleaning
I have the carpenter coming to give us a quote on a new
bedroom floor and some windows
better get those dust bunnies
out from under the bed!

Sometimes just stitching away on little pieces of fabric, soothes the soul. I should have those barrels full again come the beginning of next year.
