Christmas is coming!

I have been busy sewing this week.  I made this really cute wrist pincushion.  It is the basic flower pincushion on a cuff band.  Super simple to make, and so much fun.  I found the pattern here.  I think several of these will be made before Christmas!

I also made this CD holder for my mom for Christmas.  Shhh!  Don't tell her it's a secret!  I found the pattern in last year's issue of QuiltingArts Gifts.  It was simple and quick as well.  The background fabric was sunpainted last year with my mother's flowers.  And yes that is a well known fairy.  The pink flower was fused and everything was free motion quilted.  The lace was also painted.  There are a few beads added for sparkle, as well.  The button was one of my grandmother's.  I generally don't buy shank buttons.  I think these would make nice needle cases, too.  I have to try that later!  These were so much fun to make.

This is the inside

At this rate I will never finish my sewing list!  I still have binding to do and work on the Winter quilt!  So much to do.  I had better go get started!

Happy Quilting!
