pin cushions and superman!

will i ever get tired of making pin cushions?  I think N O T !!

i saw these french country pin cushions made on THIS blog and had to make some!!  i used my handy dandy drop cloth and stuffed mine with walnut shells to give them some weight.

i added a painted stripe to this one and backed it with polka dots.  i get all giddy over polka dots!!!!


here is the small one i made very similar to hers.  this is sitting on my desk right by my machine. 
 all loaded with pins and ready to go.

see, fits nicely on my cutting table/dresser.  :)


are you all sewing this weekend?  my son has been begging me for a quilt.  i found this fun superman comic book fabric at my LQS and he designed it.  just a few basic blocks/squares.  (thanks buddy).

we made it big for future growing, so he is having a wee bit of trouble holding it for me.  he was always my blanket kid. 
simple eh?

Nice job! Your pincushion is cute and I bet you made your son very happy! I made some needle books this weekend and I used the pins out of the pincushion that you made for me.:)

Those pincushions are adorable and it looks like the Superman quilt was a big hit.

Love the superman quilt! The pincushions look lovely and the dots are great! They match the stripe perfect!
