Sewing and Mail

This is a catch-up post. 

A little over a week ago, I received this pincushion in the mail from Laila in Norway. She sent a postcard, too, so I could see where she lives.  


My pincushion swap partner, Debra, received her pincushion from me about the same time. This pattern was one I found free on the website for the magazine SEW IT. . . TODAY.


And a few days later, I got my October pincushion from Debra. She embroidered her own ribbon tag to sew into the seam to remind me who made and sent it. That was a clever idea. 


This pincushion swap was organized by Beaquilter.com. And it is still fun. I enjoy looking for new pincushion ideas. 

SEWING BEE 

I organized a sewing bee for today. The 3 ladies who came helped sew potholders (8" square) for the church craft bazaar. This is a photo of some of the 15 we got finished. It was nice to get together and simply chat while sewing. 


I put together some orphan blocks and made a placemat set from them this evening for the bazaar. 


Thank you for stopping by. Happy Sewing!
