Tomato Pincushion and Tutorials...

 Yep...I made a new pincushion:)


A new twist on the
traditional tomato pincushion!

 I used the red gingham from Sew Cherry....

And I used Martha Stewarts tutorial ...
you can find it here.
I also found another great tutorial by Kaaren over here.
Okay...now I ask...
Why is it that we find tomatoes such great
things to stick our pins into?...
I don't know but whoever started this tradition was a genius:)

For sure this was a fast and
fun to make little project!...
so fun that I'm making several more and I'll show them all to you a little later.

I was inspired to make one  
to match my newest pattern...
"Sew she did"...
Does it match?...do you think they look like twins?...haha...I do.

If you like to stick pins into tomatoes too... you better make one.
(or 5...haha)

A few of my girlfriends and I are just getting ready to leave for beautiful Logan, Utah. 
 I will be teaching my workshop at
and then we will be sewing ...and shopping...and sewing some more...and eating...and sewing some more....and laughing...and sewing even more...it's gonna be a great week!
How about you?...you have something fun planned this week?
