Pincushion Exchange

Last week we had a pincushion exchange at our guild meeting.
These are the two that a made. The bird is red work embroidery  filled with crushed walnut shells and the other is a combination of the walnut shells and some stuffing.
These are the two I came home with.  Are they not cute as can be?
The cushion on the chair lifts off so you can store a thimble and needles in it.  This one was not hand made. However,  I still love it. Thanks Janet.
This bench was rescued from a garage sale, Theresa painted, added flowers and covered the bench with a cushion.

Barbed Wire Quilt

I have finished my Barbed Wire quilt, the pattern is from a Fons and Porter's Quilt magazine.

It started out as a challenge in one of my quilting clubs.  Several of us exchanged fabric strips so we would have a good variety of prints to use in this scrappy quilt.  We were to donate the finished quilt to a charity.  After all the work put into these quilts it was decided we could keep our quilts if we wanted and donate a different quilt.
I have decided to keep my Barbed Wire after making all those half square triangles.

This is my quilt. I have found another quilt that I have made that will be donated to a charity.
