On the Fifth Day of Christmas.....

My Blog friends gave to me.... A Christmas Pincushion with Selvage Goodies.

Hey everyone meet my new bestie blog buddy Cindy. I met Cindy through a comment I left on another blog we started talking about that comment and became friends I even mailed her some goodies for her upcoming new shop ideas that I am SEW excited about.
Cindy stops by to tell us what her most fondest memory of Christmas is.

Cindy
; One of my fondest Christmas memories is a handmade Christmas stocking made for me by one of my parents' friends. It was out of red felt with little appliqued cutouts of a Christmas tree, candy cane, and star, all embellished with sequins and beads, along with my name in white felt. I made one for my husband when we got married, one for our son for his first Christmas, our daughter-in-law when they got married and one for each of our grandchildren. They are not fancy but every year they bring back so many special memories.

Cindy
is the brain behind this wonderful idea One in Every Color; Selvage pincushions. Whohoo right! Cindy makes these cute little treasures for your sewing room. They add the perfect pop of color to any sewing desk.
I love this lightning Bugs one. She also keeps up a Super Fabulous Blog .

Each pincushion is sewn together with designer selvages, and back with a coordinating fabric, trimmed with colorful piping, and it was stuffed with environment-friendly crushed walnut shells to make it nice and weighty--your pins will love it. And so will you!
