Gone Fishin'

It's a miracle, I think I finally got my motivation back. Fall is in the air and when the kids go back to school, hopefully I will have more time for work again! Heres a little fishing pair girl & boy mini cushions. I still have a couple buttons to sew on but I wanted to show you guys a wee preview. Sorry its so dark, bad pictures or what! I made these with a vintage style baby quilt block images, but I definatly dont have time for a whole quilt!!
The most fun was that Grama & I stitched these up together! Didnt she do an amazing job! Shes much better at the outline stitch than I am!
OOps, Busted! Playing in the wet laundry, was just getting ready to hang it out on the line. He is just crazy busy, almost walking already & hes only 7 months!! I really have my hands full right now, not to mention his top 2 teeth are trying to come in now too! He just got the bottom 2 last month, so not much sleep lately for me!

Heres a close up of the 2 cushions together as a set.Gotta go add my vintage buttons! Also had some fun making some goodies for our "tiny- tiny swap" . When the kids package is ready I'll post a little picture!
~cheers~

Hi Angie,
I tried to comment yesterday on your lovely pincushion, but Blogger wasn't letting me leave comments anywhere.
Thanks for dropping by Merryville and for your kind comment. You have a really nice site too!
I love these cushions. I like the border fabrics too. I like the contrast between the sweet embroidery and the not so sweet colors. Just right!
Your little one is a cutie. I have had a couple of neices and a nephew who walked at 9 months. Look out!!

I wish we lived closer to help each other when dh's are away. It would be pretty cool to have a crafting/thrifty co-housing community. I guess Blogs are the next best thing. Wonderful embroidery Angie!

I love the embroidery, Angie! Your little one is sooo cute! Almost walking at 7 months?? Mine is crawling all over the place really fast and I am exhausted! Can't imagine when she starts walking.

That's a really sweet embroidery pattern - both of them!!

but what REALLY brought me here was the pincushion. How much would you typically sell that for?
