Sewing Goodies

Not to brag, but I have some amazing friends and family.  Everyone has been so encouraging of my new quilting endeavor and I'm so excited to continue learning and practicing and making more and more quilts!

But now I am going to brag and show off the new goodies I got from some of my favorite people!

This adorable pincushion is from my brother-in-law, his wife, and my three favorite nieces:

Isn't it so so cute? In fact, it looks similar to this one I pinned a while back.  So needless to say, I love it! AND, Melissa made it! With the help of our oldest niece, Abby, of course. 

Next is another adorable little pincushion that Santa brought:

My mom picked up this little jewel on a stop in Amish country. I think every quilter needs one of these!

One of my best friends, Ashley, from Claudie Belle Designs, hooked me up with some essential sewing tools:

I was in desperate need of a seam ripper! But I also love the thread stand and pincushion mason jar. She sells these in her Etsy shop along with so many other cute things, so you should definitely check it out!

And last but not least, major props to my wonderful hubby who gave me this fancy new pair of Gingher fabric shears:

I also pinned these specific scissors and he got them all on his own without ever seeing my board. Is he the best or what?!

I am taking a short break from the sewing machine after all the Christmas craziness, but I can't wait to put all these things to good use.  I have two MUST-DO quilts that I am really really excited to start, so STAY TUNED!!! And thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of my new little hobby!!! :)


  1. Wow, that's awesome! I love how everything is so cute and handmade or very specially picked :) It makes me want to learn to sew!

  2. You are too sweet Lyss! I can't wait to see the new things you create this year!
