The little nut has been pulling the safety pins out of a basted quilt that I had laid across my cedar chest and then chews the top off and mangles the straight part. Potential for major OUCH, Scruffee!
Here are some happy pincushions I made a while back from this pattern: http://www.quiltmaker.com/patterns/patt95.pdf. (Sorry, I can't seem to make the link thingy work.) They are fun to make while watching TV.

Here's what I finished last night--my plastic bag bag. I love this bag. It is unbelievably soft, considering it is made out of plastic grocery bags. I'm not a crocheter, but I saw this online and my plastic bag holder was overflowing so I just had to try it. It won't be the last one I make. It was fun but it does start hurting your fingers after a while.
Here's my other recent obsession, pink crumb squares:
I'm not sure how I'm going to use them yet. Right now I'm thinking of framing them with a lighter solid, then sashing them in white. I still have a few more to get to the right size, then I'll start playing with layout. I'm just about out of pink scraps though, and that makes me a little sad. But I have plenty of other pinks to cut into and then I'll have more pink crumbs. It never ends.
