I've been doing a weekly sewing challenge this month with Sew Much 2 Luv which is about to come to an end. It has been wonderful to have the encouragement to actually get some sewing projects completed, comments from other sewers about my projects, and, most of all, seeing all the projects of the other participants. No housework getting done, but I'm so happy to be checking off a few things on my long list of projects.
In search of more sewing encouragement, I stumbled upon the Very Berry Handmade Giveaway: Resolved to Sew 2012. The fabric for the giveaway is so beautiful, bright, and cheery! There's even some crushed walnut shells for stuffing pin cushions. I've steered away from making pin cushions because I like the rough grains in the manufactured ones. Who knew you could get crushed walnut shells to stuff them?
