My friend and Wackie Sister, Molly, has challenged the Wacky Pac to make a pin cushion and exchange them at our annual Christmas Party. Now, let me tell you, Molly is a very talented quilter and wonderful person. She usually has some good challenges for us -- like the year we had to decorate a miniature gourd as a Christmas ornament. All we did was complain -- but we all made one LOL! They were "interesting" to say the least.
Then, during a retreat, she challenged us to do postcards -- what fun that was. Now Rhonda is in a postcard exchange. I think that is sew cool.
Sew, as I was thinking about pincushions, I had to share this one with you. I made this for my Mama (who was also a quilter) on her 75th birthday. The cup and saucer was my Aunt Ella's (or as us kids called her "Aint Eller"). She was in the hospital on her birthday and I remember taking it to her there. She loved it, but never got to use it. She was admitted to the hospital on September 10 and she passed away on December 9th. She never got to come home. Everytime I look at this particular pincushion, it brings me great memories of both my Mama and my Aunt, but it also makes me sad. I miss my Mama very, very much!
