Abbey Lane pin cushion from CT and more

Yesterday I finished the Abbey Lane pin cushion/ bag from CT.

I bought the kit here

Now I sewed the edge border down instead of gluing it and also sewed the hanging connector piece down, I also found a wooden button for the top of the pin cushion, then I used tacky glue to glue down the pin cushion to the base.

Here it is hanging in it’s proper place but wonder if SOMEONE will be able to pull it down? it’s pretty heavy as I filled it with crushed walnut shells.

Now I was looking at my UFO list and figured I’d take pictures of the projects and maybe get inspired to work on them

#1 giraffe wall hanging - still working on needle turn applique, mommy giraffe almost done

 

I decided to needle turn applique these and it’s a long and slow process, ESPECIALLY when you don’t work on it!!

plus I accidentally reversed the pattern

I actually decided to tackle some of these today, don’t expect all to be done, but a little is better than nothing right?

Here’s Sonja checking out my UFO pile

Really my UFO list is not that big, I’ve crossed off quite a lot.

look at my list from yesterday

I’ve been working on the bubble gum quilt too.

so I think that’s just 4 things.

I love your Abby bag. I wish that I hadn't sewn my bag to the pin cushion so it would be easier to remove and empty. Yours is at the perfect height for that sweet little munchkin.

Really?? lol. I have absolutely NO idea how many UFOs I have laying around here. I'm sure the numbers are TNTC!
Love how your Abbey project turned out. My Friendship Group was just working on these last Tuesday. Small world.
