I finally broke down and did it... yup - I made myself a pin cushion! I have not had one for I can't even remember how long. Every time I go to Joann's I look at them, but I never break down and buy one... I've stored my pins in a plastic container and as I sew I pull them out and leave them on the desk. Not a great system, I know! And it has always irritated me, but still, no pin cushion.

Perfect time for a quick project! For all of you who have been putting it off - grab a few scraps and a button and throw it together! I am so excited for my next project when I can grab and place my pins with ease - no more spills all over the carpet or hardwood floors!
