So Far...

It's still pretty slow going here in flu-land but I did finish up the first three new SugarCushions.  It is so much fun to audition the little bits and pieces of fabric and trim!  I'm not completely sure I like the blue one.  The fabric has some blue but by the time it was stuffed and inserted not much of the blue was showing.  I'm not planning to make any changes just yet.  I will let it "steep" until I have the rest finished and then see what I think.
Does anyone else have trouble with too many new ideas when you're not finished with what you are currently working on??  I have so many good intentions in my head right now that I had to start a list. Idea overload!  Why can't that happen when you can't think of what to make?  Maybe that's the trick, just start making something and the new ideas will come.  Hmm.  A lesson I need to pay attention to!

So cute - how in the world did you get the 'cushion' part so perfect? I keep a sketchbook nearby to scribble down ideas before I forget them. I imagine no one else but me could possibly decipher them either.

I love this little garden of pin cushions (I'm so happy that I have one :)
I know what you mean about overload--I write down ideas all the time, because as fast as I get one---that's as fast as I forget.

These are so adorable! I love this idea!
My mind is always on overload with ideas. I'd never be able to try everything with just 24 hours in each day.

Alright...spill it. How perfect are your pincushions. I can never get mine that taught. I even thought about sewing them up first then gluing them in. These are great. Very nicely thought out...smiles...Renee

Each one is perfect! I think the fabric in the blue one is a nice contrast. I don't overload very often but the only way for me to remember is to write it down. The list is handy when you can't think of anything to make.
