stash - busting blog hop

Hello, happy Wednesday to you all!

Today is my stop on The Stash - Busting blog hop celebrating two new fantastic books - Kim (retro mama)'s Scrap Happy Sewing and 50 Fat Quarter Makes.

I loved browsing through my e-copies of both of these books and making lists of all the projects I want to make :). 

 And look, I even made this super fun Scrap Patch Pincushion from Kim's book already. I loved being able to use up some of my precious Cotton + Steel scraps.

It was such a fun and interesting project. Just look all those pins I had to use to hold the pleats in place :). Maddening, but totally well worth it.

I'm also really looking forward to making these adorable apple potholders soon. Aren't they the sweetest? I think they'd make perfect housewarming gifts, or maybe even teachers' gifts.

Oh, and how cute are these two little bears? Seriously!!! I'm not usually a huge fan of making stuffed toys but I don't think I'll be able to resist much longer.
