I've had an old magazine for some time now that I wanted to copy for my sister. She makes cute pin cushions that look like mice (look at her mice pin cushions here: Holly's pincushion mice) and everytime I see this magazine at my house I think of her. Well my thrift store karma was good to me again and today I found another copy of the magazine for 5 cents! I could not believe it when I saw the magazine, to find it once was cool but to find it again means that it is meant to be!
Also since my machine is at the "day spa" for a little well overdue pampering (the poor machine, I've been rough on it, especially, I think, when I made a ton of cloth diapers for AJ about a year ago) I've been working on some hand embroidery. These particular bags I hope to make into pencil pouches with bright, colorful zippers.
