Pin Cushion & Sofa

Blueberry Lane is giving away a free book. If you post a picture of the pin cushion you use most frequently, you'll get your name in the drawing. Here's mine. I can hardly live without it. I use all its features, and I take it with me to retreats and sew-ins. I got this when I was a new quilter (1999) and had used up my first frequent-buyer card at a quilt shop. This is what I treated myself to with my "free" money.


I like to have a pin cushion at my cutting board, too, but they tend to wander off. I just got this one recently. I hope it stays put, at least for a while.



On another topic, I'm lobbying my hubby to go with me on Saturday to buy a new sofa. We have only had a loveseat in our living room since moving in here a zillion years ago, and it's time for a full length sofa. The one I have spotted is on sale through Saturday. My hubby is not against re-doing some furniture. He just is NOT an impulse shopper like I am, so he needs a few days to digest the idea and decide it's OK. The big question: will he come to the correct decision before the sale comes to an end??? You can see how badly we need a longer sofa. Here's our poor daughter taking a nap on the shorty one we currently have. Tune in later to see how this plays out.

I love that there's a band-aid paper next to your pincushion! We all need band-aids if there are pins around. Good luck with the couch.

Had to smile at the photo of your daughter. I purposely bought two large comfy chairs and a love seat about 10 years ago so my son wouldn't sleep on the couch! If only it had worked, but like your daughter he somehow sprawls and falls asleep... now I regret now having a long sofa for the comfort....
