Strange Phenomena.

Something weird is going on with my pin cushion. It's a perfectly ordinary pincushion, (Pattern courtesy of Moda Bake Shop) it lives on the table by my sewing machine and like most women I suspect it usually looks something like this.
Here's a side view. So what's weird? Well often when I come back to it, things have changed....
Look.....
The pins seem to have a life of their own......
Or maybe I have a pin cushion poltergeist....
This only happens when there are teenagers in the house!
You don't want to know what they do to this poor lil' guy.
LOL Seems my sons can have hours of fun with a pin cushion. I'll buy them one each for Christmas! LOL

On to more serious matters. I promised you another bag, and here it is.
Complete with pocket and tassel. This one is a gift for a colleague. Oh! I quilted the lining in this bag, and the red one I showed yesterday.
*
I started a new quilt yesterday, and have a few blocks made already. Just something simple and easy inspired by a design in the latest Homespun magazine. I had a few hours playing with a Butterfly Fling Jelly Roll. I'll try to remember to take pictures for you today. Yes, I have another day off work.

For those who are wondering where it is..........
SIX days left! Yay! Only three working days, and one exam left!

Gratitude's
1) A weekend off work.
2) Imaginative kids.
3) DS Jonny is home for a few days.

You're certainly making the most of the time before you go.
I have fridge magnets that seem to be under the same influence as your pins.

Love the pincushion poltergeist-- That's one busy ghost :)

The bag is lovely, the plaid looks very handsome and stylish. A tassel just smartens it up even more!

Single digit countdown, oh my!

Hey, have your teenagers moved into my house? Things like that keep happening to my pincushion too, but there's only Mr Fixit and I live here. (do you think it might have something to do with the grandsons who spend a lot of time here?)

It's not just teenagers - if my piggyosaurus is lying around when my husband is bored it usually gets a new hairstyle
