    Here is a link to other ideas of what to stuff pin cushions with. On this one. I was just trying to test the pattern so I just used batting in it. I also made a pattern for a smaller pin cushion so I can do a wrist strap with velcro. I haven't finished one up yet. We have been busy cleaning up all the branches that came down this winter and spending a lot of time outside. I also like to use wool roving, but I am thinking of using the crushed walnut shells as they sell them in one of the fabric stores near me. I love your button, very interesting.

    Some more finished projects. Old pincushion I did not make but I made the bottom one based on the older one. Improved it by adding plastic inside so the pins don't stick through the bottom of the pincushion. Mug rug Crocheted baskets

    Cute pattern above! Love how yours came out. The beads in the dream catcher were strung on the string as I got to where I wanted them. The beads on the sides of the horseshoes were put on 24 gauge beading/jewelry wire. It is easily bent. I cut the wire long and threaded them through the holes to the back of the horseshoe then bent both sets of two wires around each other and put a little hot glue on them. I did hot glue felt to the entire back so all the ends were covered. The green and blue beads were glass beads, the brown were small tiger eye beads and the silver were spacer beads. This was something I had put away for years and finally decided to just do it. I made them for my grandsons' rooms. The hanging part was short pieces of leather and thread with beads and feathers attached randomly. The threads were folded over and wrapped then fed onto the twine and then hot glued as the twine was wound and attached with hot glue.

    New Projects Anyone?

    I am starting on a red, white and blue flag pillow. I hope I don't get sidetracked. With the colder weather, maybe I can stay with it. Got a lot of it planned today and am working on machine embroidering the 50 states' names on the stripes. Oh, this is for me!

    Thanks! I didn't make the pendant. It is carved zebra agate and I purchased quite a few different stone pendant's about 10 years ago. Every once in awhile I make one up. Both the cat bags and the necklace were made for my best friend's birthday. She loves her two black and black and white cats. The cat fabrics were both fat quarters. Most of my little bags are made from fat quarters now that I think of it. lol

    Your pieced/appliquéd tie block brought to mind a paper pieced man that I had looked at yesterday. Here is a link to him.

    Wonderful! Would be a great paper piecing project, but appliqué works too. Can't wait to see it come together.

    They look like mares to me and some do and some don't. I had fun with the border! When I look back at some of the quilts I have made, my favorites quilts involve horses .
