Some things to share

Well summer has arrived here in central more nice cool days.....days are now in the 80's soon to be 90's.  Yuk!
I was at my LNS today and came away with a little kit by Just Another Button Co that looked like fun to do....and it was.
It's one of their felt kits and it has very little sewing on it.  If your looking for a quick gift, these little pincushions are the thing.
Next from my dear friend Rhonda I received a birthday gift that I just fell in love with it.   I love to collect needle holders.....shameful how many I have.....and I'm not sure if I ever mentioned it to her or not but she really does know me.

And she even found scissors and a fob to match.  I have been using this ever since she sent it to me I just love it so much.  I'm going to stitch myself a pincushion to match and the fabrics they are laying on are ones I've picked out.  Should be a fun project.
Well that's all that's going on here.  I'm working on a project but I can't show you pics of it yet because it's for someone who reads my blog.  As soon as I send it out I'll show you.  
Also at my LNS today I picked out the silks to do the two Nora Corbett witches I want to do.  I'm going to start them over on a different color of fabric.  I was doing them on a black/grey overdyed but have you seen the new Gingerbread?  To die for!  So that's what I'm going to be doing them on.
I will post a pic of the fabric when I start one.
You all have a Blessed Sunday,

Gorgeous gifts from Rhonda - those scissors are so cute! And you had the perfect fabric in your stash to make another pincushion.
I think hand-dyed aida/evenweave is going to be my new obsession...

What a sweet pincushion.
Wow! Rhonda really chose well. Neat gifts.
Straight to summer huh? I am still waiting for Spring!

What fun gifts you received from your friend! Those bee scissors are adorable. Looking forward to the pincushion you plan on making!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Lovely pincushion. I think my students might like to try this.
