Irene came to visit and she brought along some wind and some rain. It rained from mid-afternoon on Saturday until early Sunday morning - we received just about 5 inches of rain. The winds were the strongest during the middle of the night ~ toppling some trees in our neighborhood and scattering branches and leaves everywhere. But it doesn't look like we received any major damage and thankfully no injuries.
I know that isn't the case in many areas.
While it rained I was playing on Pinterest...then I decided that I needed to get busy creating some more things that I had already pinned. Something that I hope to do on (at least) a weekly basis!!
I tackled two projects on Saturday.
Here's my first Pinspiration!
It's a sweet pincushion pinned from Todolwen - Old to New's blog and it comes complete with a wonderful tutorial. Isn't it pretty? I think everyone needs a pretty pincushion!
So......here's my version! It's pretty similar to my Pinspiration piece but I think it has my own spin on it too. It was fun to dig through my lace & trim box searching for just the right little bits of lace and ribbon for this pincushion. Then it was into the button drawer to find some perfect MOP buttons. I love how it turned out!
I took this next photo using the flash....kind of dark, but I like it. The next one was without the flash (like the other 6) but with a pretty piece of paper tucked in behind it. I don't know what was more fun...making the pincushion or taking pictures of it once it was done!
Pinned It and Did It......again! Woo Hoo!!
