Schnibbles~Tuffets~

I've been busily sewing pincushions aka Tuffets today for the scheduled Tuffets Parade  tomorrow.  It's been quite a challenge to find any time to go into my neglected sewing room this month, what with getting ready for Christmas, shopping, and getting re-acquainted with The Dean's List Daughter *insert Mom beaming here* home from college!

I only made three raiding my scrap basket...

 


 

 

The last one is two-sided and not a Tuffet but just something improvised.  I filed it in the back of my mind when I spotted it in my travels around the blogs.   I will agree with other bloggers, they are addicting to make!  I rarely use them though as I am rather impatient with pins and usually just use a container I picked up at Joann's on clearance a  few years ago.  I like it because it heavy and stable and just the right size for portability.


This is really lazy but I consider it too much work to stick them into the pincushion and would rather throw them into the container. 


And look at this, I was a winner at The Fat Quarter Shop's Dear Santa Giveaway last week!    I'm looking forward to receiving this bundle in the mail!  I won the whole bundle!  Thank you Fat Quarter Shop, they are the greatest!  Hope you all have a festive and safe New Year's Eve.  See you next year!
