Pincushions, (again!) and Sew, Mama, Sew!

Three more pincushions, and this time I added a vintage button to each one...


The design and peeling red paint on this button really speaks to me.




A sweet vintage flower button in honor of springtime.




One of my favorite types... a vintage lucite button with sparkly bits of mother-of-pearl embedded inside.



They are now listed for sale, (along with the individual "Crossroad Flags" from the post below) in my Etsy shop.

And here's a big YAY! My Work Quilt #2 is featured today over at Sew, Mama, Sew! where they are featuring a "quilt-of-the-day" all month long!



Head on over and check it out... leave a comment at Sew, Mama, Sew! and you'll have a chance to win one of the great prizes that they are giving out this week. Good Luck!

P.S. Loved hearing how you all felt in the comment section of my last post. Hugs to each of you for sharing. xo
