Over the past week I have been working on a neat project for some upcoming blog posts - stay tuned! When my project was finished I still have a few scraps leftover and decided I needed a new, summery pincushion to brighten up my sewing room.

It was so quick and easy and I thought "hey, it would be neat to have a giveaway to go with that upcoming blog post", so I made another.

The pattern I used is Tuffets by Carrie Nelson, the creative genius behind Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. It took me less than an hour to make both of them, including sewing the openings shut.

So what do you think? One for you, one for me?

And, it's Sunday, which means it is time for another installment of Sew Canadian. If you have not heard, Mad About Patchwork is publishing a series of blog posts featuring Canadian quilters and their studios - mine is coming up later in August. Check out the post - there is lots of inspiration to be had and I always enjoy getting a look into what other people are working on; you won't be disappointed. Here is the schedule of posts:
