Here are the pincushions and decorative straight pins I made Friday night and Saturday. I love the little blue velvet one. I think it's my favorite. It looks better in person than in the picture. And even though I made it a little crooked, well... I say it just gives it more character. I used a silver necklace to go around it. Sewed it on with invisible thread ( I love that stuff!) and put a cute little bead on the top that came from some old jewelry. The starfish used to be an earring and the shells came from a necklace that I took apart. I had a lot of fun making these.

Oh and by the way, Eddie is wiggly. The darn slipcover won't stay closed so I'm thinking maybe velcro? Mom and I are going to Hobby Lobby today. I've been so excited all weekend and you know sure enough, you get excited about something like that and want everything to smoothly and what do you know... the baby was up all night, I don't know if he really got much sleep at all and he only had a 15 minute nap yesterday because we were at Trade Days. You'd think he would have slept really good last night... but no... so I'm so scared he's gonna be cranky on our shopping trip. We went to Wal-Mart yesterday and I got a new hot glue gun... I was so excited. It's not pink... I wanted a pink one... but I know it will be much better than the one I have now that just oozes glue out constantly. I can't wait to use it!!! I got some felt too, not sure what I'm going to do with it, but I've been saying for a while now, "I really need some felt" so yeah, I have felt now! I'm thinking I might make some flowers with it to put on the top of my pincushions. Anyway, I've got to go wake up Lexie and get her ready for school. Tad's sleeping now, so maybe our Hobby Lobby trip will not be as bad as I think it will... we'll see.....
