I totally forgot how.
OK. That’s not really true but that was my first thought when trying to sew a bunch of circles on my machine. It didn’t work at all. The bobbin fell out twice. After a night’s sleep, I now think it was the sewing machine. It’s a fabulous straight stitching machine but doesn’t like sewing in circles. Does that sound reasonable? I haven’t fully abandoned my first theory.
On to hand stitching. I rounded up all my blues and whites and pulled out my new pin cushion.
Isn’t that hilarious? My friend gave it to me. She called it a hillbilly wine glass. I added the pin cushion lid. The only plus about actually drinking wine from it is that I could drink a whole bottle but claim to only having two glasses. Maybe that’s not a plus. Anyway, it’s a perfect place for all of my safety pins.
I had lots of fun making my circles. They don’t exactly match what I envisioned but I like them anyway.
Here’s the back after I added another circle. I really like this side. I used some old blue linen left over from another project.
