FNSI results and exciting NEWS!

It was a short night last night for me....but I made another saucer pincushion and also was able to crochet a few more rows in my afghan. 

I could make a million of these little pin cushions.  i know your thinking "what is she going to do with all of them?".  well, i have a few friends that will be getting them in their swaps as a surprise (spoiler alert) but hey they wont know which one is theirs right? 

 the colors in my afghan are funky....but i love it.  its very 70's to me and kind of reminds me of my grandma.  you know how everyone in the 70s had one of those green afghans in their house?  this granny stripe pattern by ATTIC 24 is so fun and easy make.  i already have another color group to make for xmas for one of my sons.  its going to be different shades of grays, black, white and blues.  i can see it in my head.  im also giving myself plenty of time to work on it.  (if i start now LOL)

well.....the most exciting part of this weekend and FNSI is THIS----see the picture below.

We were on the same wavelength last night. I didn't have much time or energy for sewing, but "I just had to", so I made myself a new embroidered pincushion to celebrate my new sewing room.
Exciting news about the give away.
