Handmade wrist pin cushion.

Today was a very lazy Sunday; usually dedicated to be my homework day, but instead turned out to be a semi craft day. Whenever I am procrastinating on school work, I actually begin to do other tasks that I’ve been needing to do, and so I guess it is not entirely a wasteful procrastination?

Made with scrap fabric and interfacing around my house.

I made this little wrist pin cushion after I saw a designer somewhere on television with one of these. I can’t count how many times I have struggled pinning things on a dress form, or pinning some tiny seam allowance, and I would have to stretch over to my container of pins. Noooot anymore! By the way, mosquitoes love me.

And how adorable is that piggy patch? I love chubby pigs, especially when they are dressed in clothing. AND ESPECIALLY when they are holding baskets.

Embellished with this little inane patch I found at an old warehouse.

 Among other things that I did this weekend; I celebrated Cisco’s birthday, one of my guy friends, and by the end of the night we ended up in an ollllld diner that looked like it was last updated in 1960.

 

I also visited this supposedly super haunted restaurant called the Catfish Plantation with two cosplay friends; Nick and Angel. Now I must tell you that I am a huge skeptic, I need cold hard facts and scientific evidence before I will jump to any conclusion; but that place literally sent chills up my spine.
They hosted a special after hours event, which included a buffet of delicious catfish, chicken, wine and beer, hush puppies, sweet potato fries, and other goodies. Afterwards they gave us a tour and a detailed history of the location. There were several moments in a specific spots where my arms were covered in goosebumps, and my neck and back felt chilled, but that could have easily just been the excitement.

 

When I got back home, I looked up online media on the place, and I found this video:

I plan to take my mother and father there for lunch. :D

    That is the cutest pin cushion I’ve ever seen Pea-nitza! It’s berry stylish.

    I guess it did get deleted when I pushed enter.

    It’s fabulous. It looks like a bracelet you can wear at anytime, yet also serves a function. I could also find another use for this wonderful creation: a small pillow for a cat’s head. PURR-FECTO!
