does this topic go here?

Hi everyone.
We moved into our new place and we are into the second week of our decision not to get TV. I also have a resolution to use up the fat quarters I have been collecting (note I am not a quilter) so I found this great pattern to use up my free time and some scraps. It looks much more complicated that it is. It was so easy in fact that I made two. The one on the bottom was my first try. I think the fabric patterns are too busy next to each other so I made another that I like a lot better. I also fudged the bottom of the first pretty bad. What with the move and all I havent done any real sewing for a while. I feel like I am getting my sea legs back. I forgot to mention that the pincushion is huge 6 across. Hopefully its too big to get lost in my sewing box
 Wink hey my smilie has a hat!

Anyway, I would really suggest the pattern to anyone with bits of fabric too small to do anything else with, but too cool to get rid of. I had to sign up at Better home and Gardens to get the pattern but it didnt cost anything. http://www.bhg.com/crafts/sewing/projects/wild-flower-pincushion/

They are both really cute but I do like the top one better. Thanks for the pattern link.

Good luck with not having a TV. See if it works for you.  Smiley I grew up with very restricted TV viewing. So as an adult, mine is on all the time!

I love this! I need a new pincusion and this one seems perfect for spring. I too have a ton of fat quarters and need more projects to use them up!!

We got rid of our TV about a year ago. We can still watch things online but we spend less time zoned out Smiley Smiley. Good luck with it!

I love the fabrics!  Crafting is a awesome way to avoid missing the tv.
We have tv, but we dont watch it often and I like it that way.  Smiley
