Have any of you seen the DIY girls? I don’t know much about them
but what I can tell you is they are very clever when it comes to sewing.
I am always looking for pincushions that might inspire me. Of course
that does not mean I will be able to make them! I like looking at them
for some reason. Call me obsessive….I guess I probably am when it
comes to looking at Etsy stores and Googling pincushions. They are
just so darned cute. Another place I search and seek is a place
called Pinterest . I am sure you all know about that. What an addiction
that can become! Here is the latest pincushion I would love to try
that the DIY twins do a tutorial of……………………………………………………
Yesterday Bobbie and I went to Portland to see my daughter Carissa’s
new apartment down on the waterfront. While waiting outside for us
to arrive, she accidentally locked herself out! The beauty of that is
that she lives with two other room mates and they both work at the
same place as she does….a five minute drive from her home in the
wonderful Old Port section of Portland. We took her down to get a
set of keys from one of them! Whew! I forgot my camera but next time
I will bring it and show you pictures. What a cute place. I felt like I
had stepped back into the 70’s. She collects old albums….well….they
are not called albums anymore….they are “vinyl” now. What’s up with that?
Anyway….I will be on the lookout at yard sales now for them for her.
What’s old is new again. There were albums like
Taj Mahal……and my husband sat on a blanket on a chair with the head of
on it. There were quite a few guitars, drums, tambourines,
and a music stand with some old Bob Dylan sheet music on it.
To say that my daughter is a bit of a hippie like her mother was is an understatement. And
of all of the characters and chotskies (from my past and hers) on the furniture, the walls, the refrigerator and the
music stands, the one things that drew my attention the most was an antique Hoosier cabinet.
I used to have one years ago and sold it for little or nothing at a yard sale. Here’s a photo of
a nice one…. They are nice pieces. Apparently her room mate’s
mother lent it to them to use….neat. Well…we brought her out here for the afternoon/evening
with my grand dog Piper! I made little haddock casseroles and cheesy penne Rigato. She and I
played a game called Scattergories and had a lot of fun!! It was a good day. Any cute pincushions
you see with patterns, send them my way via a link would you? Hope you are all well…..see you
