Did you ever have one of those spells where there was some problem with every thing you sewed. I couldn't even make a simple 9 patch correctly. So this morning, I thought - simple - that's the way to go. My daughter came home from school with a list of sewing supplies we need to purchase for a class and on the list was pincushion.
I love pincushions. I could give her one of these.

I could give her this one - very unimaginative.

But then I was looking through my strips and selvedges. And an idea was born. A simple idea. Her own personalized pincushion.

Hopefully I've got my sewing mojo back

I also think a good cleaning and organizing of my sewing room may help.
But that's not as much fun as sewing.

Love the selvedge pincushion...and personalized too. I had some Stephanie selvedge that I put into a purse. :o) As for can't sew anything right...I had a day of cooking just like that...if you could drop it or slop it, I did.

I have been stumbling along a bit on the sewing front..........but I did a little stitchery on the weekend and made it into a simple wall hanging for Fairy Girl and it is great ti finally have something finished.......

I get days like that aswell. I just shut the door on my sewing room and read a good book

Love and hugs Gina xxx

I'm terrible at any diets. They usually last 2 weeks. So I'm always interested in when someone can last long in any kind of diet!
