{teacup pincushions}

I'm slowly getting back to the crafting thing, and I swear, it's like a snowball.  I started, and now I am in a furry of crafting!  I am trying to get some Christmas presents made - yes, I know it's only May.
But, in my defense - I have 3 boys {the youngest of which took his first steps last night! YAY!!!}
Also, it looked like Christmas here yesterday and today.  Woke up to roughly 4" of snow yesterday morning, and then today it looked as though we were in for a May blizzard.  So cut me a little slack, okay? - K.

I found a tutorial over at Martha's.  
The woman drives me batty, but she does find some awesome projects.
Betz White can make just about anything out of felt, I swear.

This is my interpretation of her teacup pincushions.  I think they are adorable.

The bottom one is for my mother-in-law for Christmas (and I am crossing my fingers she doesn't read my blog, otherwise, Merry Christmas in May!) and the top one I haven't decide what I am doing with yet.  It may go to a friend who is just starting out with sewing.  But first I am entering it in the Store Challenge at my LQS. Unless I enter the bottom one.  I still can't decide, and I have to take it in tomorrow.

And can we say cashmere pincushion!?!?  My pins have never had it so good! ha!ha!

Please Return to Your Regular Blogging

*ahem*  Apparently I've neglected my blog.  The good news is that is hasn't been a full year since my last post.  The bad news is that it's been WAY more than long enough!  Yikes.

So, rather than bore you with a long drawn out explanation of what's been going on, let's just chalk it up to LIFE, and go from there.  And I'll give you a peek at what I've been doing.


Burp cloths (I know a gazillion preggos right now)

So, there's a small peek of what's been going on.  I plan on getting back to blogging, and I am sewing a lot more now, too.  Missed you all!!!
