A special gift for a "new" sewer...


My girlfriends's daughter, Kellie, just started sewing....
and she got her first sewing machine just before the holidays...

...so I made her a special pincushion for Christmas!
 She made some fabulous gifts for Christmas too!

I just know she loved that specially created gift you made for her. She must have been given your creative gene. I think gifts like that pincushion are so meaningful.

Carrie that pin cushion is sooo beautiful!! And I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog last month and leaving a comment. I am sorry that it took me this long to realize it was there LOL

This is so neat. I did the same thing for my Grandson's wife while she visited me for Christmas. I introduced her to quilting and she made a small quilt in 2 days. I made her a similar pincushion.
