In honor of the sewing season

With these long evenings spent indoors, I'm starting to pull out some sewing projects and think about Christmas gifts. One night last week, I sewed this really simple Christmas Ball ornament that's going to be in the upcoming issue of the magazine. But just as I did all last fall and winter, I found myself sticking straight pins and needles in the arm of the sofa since I didn't have a pincushion on my end table.

That first Christmas ball came out so nicely, on the way home from visiting my parents this weekend I stopped by Hobby Lobby in Carrollton for more supplies. I always make a point of visiting their clearance displays, and look what I found with a nice markdown!

If there's anything I like better than finding sewing supplies on sale, it's finding sewing supplies on sale that have a tea connection!


  1. That is a really cute pincushion. I'm looking forward to seeing your sewing projects created for the magazine.

  2. Too cool! I love the pin cushion!

  3. Is this a brass finish? When I saw this today, I fell in love but I thought the finish was silver. I checked on ebay (there are no hobby lobby stores in PA) and there is one with a brass finish. Is that the case with yours too?
    Happy crafting!!

  4. Oh, I want that pin cushion. That is just too cute.

  5. Gerri, mine has a silver finish, but they *did* have one more that had a brass finish. Both of them were quite pretty!

  6. I'm a tea lover and a stitching addict lol You're right, nothing better than tea and stitching together (it's my stitching room's theme).

    You have a great blog, congrats!

  7. AH! i am catching up angela, and just spotted this!! me want! :-0
