---whether you are having fun, or not!
So much going on in life, that stitching has really taken a back seat, but I finally scrabbled together enough for a post.
Last post I showed a little double 9-patch block I had made using the Itty Bitty Eights ruler. Now it has a purpose. I made it into a pincushion, which finishes at 2 3/4" square.

The Attic Heirlooms Ornament of the Month will soon be posting #6, and I have barely finished #4.
As I have said before, I am making mine into a little Christmas quilt, rather than individual ornaments.
The Buttermilk Basin Mystery BOM just posted block #5, and I just finished #4 on this one, as well.
I like to add my own little touches to these blocks, when I can think of them. I added the strawberry to the pincushion, the button to the scissors, and stitched a couple of pins onto the cushion, with beads for pin heads.
This shows the four blocks together. I love Stacy's designs and hope I can keep up, or I should say get caught up and stay there. : )
I want to show this tiny ladder I found in a thrift store. I have no idea what it was meant to be, but I brought it home and filled it with little quilts. It sits beside a small trunk where I keep seasonal children's books for the grandkids.
It is just over 2' tall. So fun.
One last thing--May 11th was my 4 year blog anniversary, so I am having a little giveaway for my faithful followers. So many of you have truly become friends and I am enriched by associations with quilters from around the world! When I began this little blog I never dreamed I would become well acquainted with such delightful people, from widely varied backgrounds. My life is definitely better for knowing you!
Lori's (Humble Quilts blog) little SAL quilts. And finally, the pincushion I made from the double 9-patch block is item #4. Random stuff, I know, and I may tuck in another giftie or two.
The giveaway will be closed at midnight MST on Saturday.
I am flying to NH on Monday to spend a week spoiling new grandbaby #5, so there is a possibility the prize will not be sent out until I return, but I will try to send it Monday before I leave, if the winner gets back to me quickly with their address.
So leave a comment if any of this appeals to you. : )
Giveaway now closed.
Until next time,
