pincushions and peg boards

In between a plethora of Doctor and Dentist appointments last week I did a little sewin’ and craftin’.

 The BG helped with this one.

We took a plain old board,  some paint, and some square head nails and made some little peg shelves last week.

 Now I have a place to hang new cross stitch projects!

One I stuck on a wall:

(that’s a Stacy Nash cross stitch pattern I whipped up)

And the other I stuck on a ladder to have extra places to hang do-dads:

Rusted up some cans for a few new fall arrangements:

Made a little burlap sack to hold some Sweet Annie:

On sewing day with Mom we made pincushions galore!  We had so much fun.

awww isn’t it a wee little cute thing?

This one was out of a Whimsicals book.  We used wool roving to form the ball.

Then there is this jumbo sized one for my sewing room:

We definitely have plans to make some more pincushions….we’re addicted!

I’ll take off on a parting shot of the sweet little deer I found while antiquing this weekend.

Hope you all have a fabulous week!

Later Gators!

    Hi Melissa,
    Glad you stopped by my blog so I could find you! You are quite the seamstress. I love how you’re able to “whip up” a purse the night before going out!!
    Love your burlap bag and your burlap project with the old barn wood and flowers. Great ideas!
