All by myself

This weekends project was pincushions. I did the embroidery on this little pincushion and then sewed it up - all by myself! You may remember that the sewing machine (aka - the beast) and I do not get along well. When hubby came downstairs and saw I had the beast out he asked me what I was doing. He reminded me that the beast and I are not on friendly terms. I told him I was going to sew this little thing up if it killed me!




So - what do you think? Not too shabby (if I do say so myself) for a rookie!
Hope you have a great Monday!

Thanks for visiting my blog :)
I love this pincushion you made!
Hey, I used to be from a small East Texas town too, when I was a kid, we lived in Tyler and my parents would go all the time and sell stuff. Fun times! Since I've been married and living near Dallas, we hardly ever go.

PS, I was referring to going to Canton to sell stuff, duh! LOL! My fingers got ahead of my brain.
Anyway, I loved Canton and thought of it when I saw your post about going :)

Looks to me like you tackled the beast and won.
