On a sewing roll........

Well, there are TWO things that I found that were super cute that I wanted to try, so I got my sewing machine out and cleaned all the dust off of it. LOL I am NOT a sewer.........I bought this machine a couple of years ago when it was the HOT thing to sew on your scrap book pages and that is all I have ever used for it with the exception of hemming something here or there.

So here is another pumpkin that I made tonight. The first one posted below I took to work and it sits on my desk...well.......wouldn't you know, my co worker wants one.....LOL
But I think that I will keep this one, (I like it better) and give her the first one that I made.

Now on to the dress form pin cushion.
Someone showed me this tut on line (HERE)

Took me a few days to wrap my mind around how to pin the sides on this dress form. And then when I figured that out and started sewing I realized that I am BAD at sewing.....LOL I need practice, so this is my first practice dress form. There are flaws that I have tried to cover up, and its not perfectly straight.......but it turned out OK...I think that these are just super cute.
