What I worked on this weekend

Well,  I completed a project I started last year....(if you don't remember you can read here.)  Anyway..I finished a pin cushion/thread catcher while using my new ruffler foot.

and yes if you followed the link to the post I gave above.  I did make one change.  I got rid of the red rick rack.  I didn't care for the red it was too bright of a red for the material.  I'm glad I did because it was a battle to decide to rip it off.  However, my sewing room motto:
Whatsoever a woman sewth that shall she also rip 
So therefore we ripped.  ;P  When I sew, the seam ripper and I are BFF.

Here are a few more snaps of the whole project...

I made it so if I wanted to use just the pin cushion I could...

pattern??? No, I just made it up as I went.  I saw the pin cushion here, and just made my own pattern.  Then I decided I wanted to try my hand at making a thread catcher.  I found a tutorial for a thread catcher (I don't remember which site I was at, sew I can't give credit. sorry)  I started and completed the thread catcher last year for the pincushion blog hop.  Any way another completed project for 2014.  ;P

Now I have to get serious about the project for....
