Every Day Art, Cigar Boxes

As I was passing by a cigar shop the other day, I noticed these boxes for sale for the nominal price of just $2.00.  I couldn’t resist the bold graphics!

Pin Cushion, Sewing, DIY

As I was cleaning my sewing room last week, I ran across this blue fabric with elegant pink birds on it…Before I knew it, I was cutting strips, combining fabrics and agonizing over color choices…

Generally avoiding the task at hand:  cleaning my sewing room…Fortunately, my sewing room was organized just enough to find these ground black walnut shells– purchased at Rose Mille several weeks ago.  I used them to add heft to the cushion and sharpen the pins.

As you might have guessed,  cleaning the sewing room is just NOT a priority!
