But first, here are the "Encouraging Words of the Day:"
I again made a round pincushion that's made up of hexagons AND pentagons. I had to actually get my son's old soccer ball (AGAIN) and use it as a guide to sew these together correctly and make the round shape. Here is this year's pincushion pictured with the one I made last year.
My grandson gave me the stuffed Angry Bird when we were both into playing the game on our iPhones. Perfect for a pincushion! The Angry Bird is probably angry because I stuck all those pins in him.
I've been putting together some sewing kits for friends and sewed up these little pincushions to add to the kits.
Lastly is this little bitty pincushion that I made for my "take-along" sewing kit. I use this a lot when I travel. It beats putting the needle in the car seat or on my pants leg. I'm so glad I made it because I use it all the time. Well, I made two. They're really small since the bottom is a lid from a 2-liter soda bottle.

That is all.
