Two new pincushions, gorgeous fabrics, and another day-brightener!

I was recently making some wrist pincushions for a large order, so I made up a few extra for my shop. They're so much fun to make! This one came together by accident. I had planned the cuff in completely different patterns and colors, but just randomly set the pincushion down on this cuff instead. A happy accident!

This one has a pretty, rich brown cuff. That gorgeous brown paisley fabric is Pistachio Patti Paisley, by Michael Miller. I purchased it from fabricsupplies on Etsy. A great guy to work with, and very reasonable prices!

Speaking of gorgeous fabrics. . . .

I haven't bought any lately, but I did buy this a few weeks ago from modfabric's shop (also on Etsy):

Again, a lovely shop to work with! I have no idea what I'm going to do with it. It reminds me of Hawaii.

Have you seen Heather Ross' Menocino line? Ohhhhh. My new favorite fabric set:
It comes in such great colorways! That's the only reason I haven't bought any yet -- I can't decide which colors I want!
Another day brightener. . . .
Today I received a lovely package from laideebugz from the Fill A Mug Swap on Craftster!

I just love the batik fabrics she used, and the rich colors, too. Those fingertip oven mitts in the back are so neat -- my daughters were especially impressed with those! Some coasters, a java jacket, little drawstring bags, and that awesome pyramid bag were all crafted by my sweet partner! Then, those were all stuffed with coffees, cocoa, and apple cider -- yum! I'm sipping the pumpkin spice coffee now from my new coffee mug. Who needs Starbucks?!? Thanks so much, G.!

Monkey 2 update. . . .

Today was the first day in 4 weeks that she did not wake up crying in pain. Seems like the antibiotics are working so far.
