i haven't been idle this weekend. finished this adorable little hat from susan anderson's book, itty-bitty hats. i think i could have probably just put five petals on it but it's still pretty cute!
i also finished my little chick quilt. the embroidery pattern is from my mom.
i quilted it with a flower pattern using perle cotton. i think it came out pretty adorable too! i love the colors, so bright and summery.
i also wanted to link to the green kitchen's tutorial on a wrist pincushion. she uses a darling piece of trim. i have a wrist pincushion but i've been known to stab myself using it. this one looks bigger and has a piece of cardboard in it to prevent those types of mishaps.  go  check it out-she hosting a giveaway too!

What a cute hat and that quilt is lovely - very summery.

Thank you for the sweet comment about my tutorial.

Love the hat! And the little embroidery on the quilt is so sweet! I've stabbed myself plenty of times with my wrist pincushion, but it is so handy. I've made some felted wool pincushions in the past for give-aways (complete with cardboard protection), but I still use my ugly purchased one because I've never gotten around to making a cute one for myself.
