Pins get an upgrade.

I have always meant to make myself a beautiful pin cushion but have some how never gotten around to it. My pins lived in a ugly little plastic container.

Pin Situation

But no longer!

Megan from Philistine Made is in Block Party with me.  She was so sweet and sent me one of her amazing pin cushions along with her beautiful blocks! I was thrilled! Look how much better my pins are lookin’! I’m loving that this will now be a staple on the sewing table… Thanks Megan!!

Pin Situation Remedied!

    Love it!! How wonderful. I keep thinking I should make a pretty pin cushion to replace that store bought tomato I currently use. Maybe sometime soon…
