I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

My new pin cusion!

This was a dress form pin cushion I recently made after watching a DIY tutorial.  She is supposed to have a finial and a base, but true to my MO...I messed up and modified her to salvage the project.  In the end, I loved it because coming from her "neck" is the hand made seam ripper and pokey thing for sewing that my friend's husband turned for me on his lathe in GA.   It works perfectly to house them! 

I was going to give away the second one of these that I made and mounted in a bright happy color...but I am not 100% happy with how it turned out, so I will be making adjustments to it or another one altogether withing the next week for anyone who is interested.  Stay tuned for that.

I have also been revamping my space and have many things I would be willing to part with...I just need to get them into order and photographed for another give-a-way in time for Christmas!

I do love this season and in spite of the commercialism, cynicism, and all that is still such a joy to give gifts out of gratitude for THE gift that God has given me in Christ!  Hugs and blessings to all dear readers!
