Finished for Friday: Girly Crafts

I have a big quilt project underway, but I made a few smaller items I can share today.

First up is another wool pincushion. This must be the millionth one I've made. I'm addicted. And I use them all! This one was made from a pattern at All People Quilt. Wasabi Girl is my charming model.

I think it's cute. It's also stuffed with lamb's wool so it will be needle-friendly. (The pincushion, not the daughter).


I needed some more shopping bags so I made two of these. Apologies to my husband who has to use these at the supermarket, but really! Most grocery store bags are just dreary. I like happy groceries. Drama Girl modeled this one for me, and then she started to walk off with it. Now I need to make totes for both girls in their choice of fabrics.

It looks like we don't own hairbrushes around here. I assure you we do, I just snapped these shots quickly after we came home from a busy afternoon running around.

What have you been up to this week? Just add your link, leave a comment, and please visit the other participants to cheer them on.

Not getting things done? I suggest you head over to "Make Great Stuff" and read the post called "The Tricky Art of Finishing What You Start." Lots of food for thought there.

Edit: So sorry some people seem to have problems creating links today. I've contacted the Linky guy. Please leave your links in the comments. Thanks!

I love both your projects! I really need to make myself a pin cushion- can you believe I don't have one? And I totally know what you mean about the shopping bags. Do you use a pattern?

The pincushion and the daughters are beautiful! I've been appliqueing circles to 4" squares for a bed quilt. I only need 478 of them! I showed a picture on my blog. This project may take a while!

Two very cute projects, and two lovely ladies, even with the ragamuffin hair!

The pin cushion is sweet, and I find plain grocery bags boring too. Yours is very pretty. I remember so much better to bring my own when it is a fun or pretty one.

What a cutie she is...growing up soooo fast.
These are two great projects...I especially LOVE the pin cushion!!

Oh, love your grocery bags! Fabulous idea! I started wondering the other day about germs and those bags and if the ones they sell at the store are washable. Yours totally would be. I'd love the measurements for everything. I could figure it out from there.

BTW, your girls are beautiful!

I always enjoy seeing what you've finished, though I do think that the lovely daughters are still works in progress. glad they were willing to model for us.

Hi there, Thanks for stopping by and leaving that sweet comment. I'm all linked up to the party!
By the way... I love the grocery bag idea. I never thought of having pretty ones. I'm trying that for sure!

The girls definitely out-number the boys in your household - since I'm out-numbered - there is NO WAY any of my guys would use flowery bags! However, I love them!

BTW, I am starting my first quilt next week. My MIL is "tutoring" me - I'm making a Blue Cotton Quilt:) I am so excited.

Happy Mother's Day!
