Gatherings of Goodies, Some Blue, and Some Art for You

This is my gathering basket.
(which just happens to be blue).

For a year I have gathered assorted things to
make unique pin cushions with.

Can you believe I have only gotten 4 done?
Here are a couple.

Pin cushion made from a candle holder.
It is hollow. See the buttons inside?
(sold, can make you one similar).

See the black drawers in the corner?
A little pin cushion/sewing drawers.
(still available)
A little blue for you:
Ava and Grammy after bath time.

Ava and Grandma out for a walk.
( a couple of years ago.)

My only project done this week (besides taxes!)
This is a page from those little prayer and saying books
you see all the time. They are usually a dollar or less at sales.
Even if some of the pages are ruined,
there are always a lot of good sayings and verses to use.

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday,
and will join these lovely blogs on their special day today.

thanks to all our wonderful hostesses.

Your items for church are wonderful as usual. You have your taxes done already? Good for you.
Ava is adorable. Looks like you have some work left to do. . .

Such beautiful things you create Barb!! I love all of the different things you've gathered to hold pincushions ~ I found something wonderful to fill them with that gives them a vintage feel ~ bird litter! I went to Pet Smart and they have crushed walnut shell bird litter! I'm going to fill the pincushion and finish off with fiberfill then draw up the thread...Have a wonderful week sweet friend, hugs and love, Dawn
