Sunday Sewing

 The weekends always seems to wizz by don't you agree, we wait all week for Friday night to come then next thing its Monday morning and time for a new week to begin. I always try to sew as much as time allows on the weekend, as you know I have been making little pumpkin pin cushions, this one I made for  a friend. They are alot of fun.
 I loved making the self covered buttons so much I thought I'd like to make some needle holders, Just need to find some round magnets.
 I got a lovely surprise on Friday, A little while ago I won a giveaway on Instagram, these beautiful tins by Lori Holt are now gracing my sewing room. They are so sweet.

Speaking of Lori Holt I have been making some projects of hers lately and this mini quilt is one of them,  It only took me an afternoon. Next one is an iron mini quilt with the words press. I hope to finish that today.

Enjoy your Sunday, hope you found some sewing time.

Nothing like sweet treasures in your mail box! For all you do for others the blessing has been returned. Yea for you! Love your little pumpkin especially love the word fabric. You get more done than anyone I know. Well I guess I know a few other energizer bunnies who amaze me. Afraid you will leave me in the dust when you come ; ) but hope a little of you rubs off on me ! Wondering if perhaps we could come up with a little charm pack pattern we could work on together while you are here.
Have a great week. Janita
