Sew Turn and Stuff

I have spending a lot of my "winter" time reading...
not just my favorite... 
historical fiction, or crazy enough,
 even poetry
but also quilting books,
 which is what sweet dreams are made of!

It is no news that I love pretty much everything
by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company 
also known as Carrie Nelson...

So, above
 is a couple of my newest books and I have actually 
had a little free play time to  experiment with the Pin Pals
pincushions book by Carrie Nelson.

Here are a few other pincushions that are projects
in the book.
They all are  so cute... so fair warning...
if you start making them, 
it will be like
"If you give a mouse a cookie"
syndrome so be prepared!

Carrie is a master of small blocks and Schnibbles,
but her techniques and tips for making up
these precious gifts (for a friend or yourself)
really puts her in a league of her own.

I love all the information in the book including tips 
when you poke a hole in your corner when turning
the pin pal and 
all the info on types of thread.
So helpful!

Does it look like there are a lot of 
The book is jammed packed with 40 different 
projects... that are great for using up your 
favorite little
bits of fabrics or showcasing
your mini charm packs!

You can find a copy of this book on Amazon

 Carrie has another  book that has just been 
isn't she busy?
 I will share more about Summer Moon next time along 
with a few finished
 pincushions of mine from the
Pin Pals book.
