I had great intentions on this weekend being productive. However, I ‘slept in’ this morning and it threw my plans completely off! Consequently, I scrapped the sewing and took the kids to Hobby Lobby (where they got foam swords), a walk around a local landmark (until it got too hot), and topped it off with a trip two fabric stores. I wandered around our new quilt shop and popped in next door to Sew Much. While I was there I managed to pick up several yards of a wonderful, drapey, shiny pewter, knit – I have no idea what I want to do with it, but I’ve had my eye on it for awhile and Taylor thought it was awesome too. Taylor also requested a pattern – Vanilla House Designs’ Cups and Needles. I know that there are lots of free designs out there for similar pincushions, but I’m sure that these have clear instructions that Taylor can follow – plus she said she’d be making me one for my birthday. Now how can I pass that up?
