I made more pincushions this year to give as gifts. I made some last year, too. These are simpler. They are backed with wool felt. I am always looking to use up supplies during the holidays. I bought the coolest fat quarters over the summer that have been made into aprons and bags and these are the scraps. They are heavy—I filled them with a mix of polyfill and crushed walnut shells (in the form of natural kitty litter) so they have a nice heft.
I listened to WTF while sewed, this time the interview with Dan Clowes, who I have never heard speak. I've read all his comics and interviews, but never heard him. It was so great to listen to. Sadie needs to read Ghost World. Wow, that went by fast. It wasn't that long ago I stashed all my comics away.
