it's WIP Wednesday. i haven't done one in foreeevvveer!
i haven't been posting much, as you can tell, and i haven't decided if i should post about not posting or not... hm, i'll keep thinking about that. i definitely have a backlog of finished quilts to post! in the meantime, here are pics of projects i've been working on the last few days.
if you know me at all, you must have known that i'd be obsessed with this fabric. i was just waiting for Spool of Thread get it in, and now i want to put typewriters on EVERYTHING I OWN. seriously.
what do you think it is? it's a secret till it's done!
i tried making pincushions today. i was so proud of myself that i actually knew where a glue gun was, but of course, it didn't really work anyway. glue guns never work, honestly. do you use glue guns? eugh. i prefer glue like goop, or silicone sealant, but my goop was all dried up and i have no idea where my silicone is.
when i come across neat mugs, i pick them up to make pincushions out of, and then i never get around to it. they'll be fun door prizes for guild., once i pick up some more glue!
i put some fancy rocks into the bottom of the mug to weigh it down. partly cause that orange one above is rather top heavy, and partly because i find that pincushions have a tendency to slide off the table right when you need them to stay. you could use anything, really, but i found those at the dollar store by my house.
i put something else at the bottom of the mug, below the rocks. magnets! it's handy when you drop pins, or if you have a hard time picking up tiny things.
i love this mug. isn't it cute? i bought it ages ago and it's been sitting on my counter ever since. my sister tried to tell me that it's an easter mug cause the little girl is collecting eggs, but upon further inspection, i think she's full of crap.
what do you think is in the little girl's basket? i think she's collecting mushrooms, not eggs. the yellow one has a stem! those are mushrooms, right?
