Ta Da - A Teensy Finish

Following my elation at finishing my big quilt I decided to complete another project this year.


Ta da!

This teensy pincushion was started back in June when I visited Chookyblue.  We each made a tiny log cabin pincushion that only measures 2 1/4 inches square.  At the time we didn't fill them and Chooky asked if I had walnut shells, to which I replied "Yes".

Of course, when I got home do you think I could find them?  No, not on your Nelly, so it just sat there waiting.

A couple of months ago I was looking for something else and I found the walnut shells.  Somewhere that I would never have suspected. (Does that say something about the state of my sewing room?)  However, I didn't do anything at the time other than put the walnut shells next to the pincushion.  I suppose that was a start.

Anyway, today was the day.  It took a whole five minutes or so.  Huge job, but a job well done.

Another project to tick off the list before the start of the new year.
