Today is my day for blog hop. First I'd like to thank Madame Samm our leader and Kristen @ Meadowbrook our cheerleader. She has kept us all on tack this summer.
This has been one crazy month. I've been on pins and needles as my baby graduated this summer so after 22 years of being a SAHM I'm now employed outside the home. What a thing to get use to. The day after labor day was my first day and boy have I been bogged; hit the ground running. I need to come up for air and soon. ;P I know things will get easier as I get a schedule down but for now I'm treading water to stay afloat.
At the moment I only have one of my pincushions completed.
The second one sad to say is very incomplete....
I was beginning to make an apple core pincushion that I saw @ Sizzix Blog
Like I said we are very well not done with it. Sorry
as far as I've gotten....it is still on the sewing machine.

Nice work! I'm sure you'll find time to finish up the apple pin cushion. I'd be curious to see how it turns out.ReplyDelete
I like your tea- cup pin cushion. I have spare cups around so I will try it as I have seen a few on the blogs. Can't wait to see the apple core one finished.ReplyDelete
That apple core looks cool! Keep going.ReplyDelete
How great to hear that you got the job you were interviewing for at the last hop! Congratulations! It must be an enormous shift to make, but you will get used to it eventually and love it all over again. Till then I am sending you good thoughts! Work does tend to cut into your sewing time! Make sure to show of that pincushion when it is finished!ReplyDelete
The apple core one, is very interesting and your tea cup is pretty.ReplyDelete
Love the teacup, but I am always afraid to throw it over and that it will break.ReplyDelete

The teacup pinkeep is precious!ReplyDelete

I bet your happy one will turn out great. Thanks for sharingReplyDelete
Cute little pinnie. I almost made the apple core one.ReplyDelete
Hang in there with going to work after being home all those years. Its tough to face empty nest and working at the same time. It will get better.
Love seeing that tea cup used as a pin cushion. Very nice. I'm sure your apple core project is almost done. Thanks for showing your process today.ReplyDelete
Going back to work after being a SAHM for a while is no small matter! Get your "sea legs" again and then you'll have time for more sewing! Your little tea cup pin cushion is so pretty. I think your apple looks like it will be too!ReplyDelete
That is sweet, why can't you make the apple core?ReplyDelete
Pretty cup and pincushion. I sew relate. Getting my work schedule and having enough energy kind of throws life into a spin at times.ReplyDelete
Pincushions are so comforting to needles and pins. Yours will be wonderful. Creative Bliss and Great Hop...ReplyDelete
You got one done, don't beat yourself up. Back to work is hard. Give it time, and it will all fall into place.ReplyDelete
I do like that pincushion. I hope that you will show us the apple when its completed!! Looks really cute.ReplyDelete
Good luck in your new job! I'm transitioning, too, so I know how you feel. You will be fine, using sewing to relax when there is some time. I like the teacup pinnie so much, and the apple one is going to be awesome!ReplyDelete
Such pretty colors in your teacup pincushion. I looked at the link for the apple core.... it's gonna be a cute one!ReplyDelete
Very pretty teacup pincushion. Your apple core pincushion will be adorable when finished.ReplyDelete
I love your teacup pincushion. Good luck in your job. I can't wait to see your apple core . I need to look that one up. I hope you have a nice relaxing weekend.ReplyDelete
I love the teacup cushion - good luck in your new job, it is difficult finding time to fit it all in isn't it! Enjoy the apple core one too. Thanks for sharing and sorry I am late visiting.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your tea cup pin cushion. Very nice. Best wishes as you find a rhythm in the work world. Transitions are not easy but you will do well.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your pincushion.ReplyDelete
No need to apologize---you got one done and the other is started. The change in routine will take some adjustment and carving out some sewing time here and there may be one of the things to make time for. You can get a lot done in 15 minutes, amazingly.ReplyDelete
The teacup IS lovely.
Your teacup pincushion is so sweet! Great job!ReplyDelete
I have left projects on the machine like that before:) Too funny!!!
How well I remember returning to work after several years hiatus; it's tough getting used to the whole business!! You'll catch on, I'm sure. The teacup pincushion is so sweet and will be a joy to use. Your apple is more than an idea so 'pat yourself on the back' for gathering supplies and starting the sewing process.ReplyDelete
Cute tea cup pincushion. Don't worry, you will get into a routine and get everything done. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Your apple cushion will be lovely when finished; I hope you get some nice, relaxing, sewing time soon!ReplyDelete
This happens to all of us... hope you find the time to finish it up. New routines are exhausting!ReplyDelete
Cute pincushion, thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
Hi!!! Very pretty tea cup pinnie!!! Thank YouReplyDelete
That's a great way to reuse a teacup!ReplyDelete
Good luck with your new job. Take time, sometimes only a few minutes at a time, for yourself....it is worth it.ReplyDelete
