Good Morning! Here in
headed into Fall – my favorite season. I love the cooler temperatures and to
see the leaves changing color. Then there are some of the foods that I
associate with the change of seasons - I made pumpkin bars last week, and have
been thinking about different soups to make during the cooler days. And, we
can’t have Fall without having pumpkins! A few months ago, “Simple Quilts and
Sewing” magazine asked me to design a pin cushion for their fall issue - the
first thing I thought of was a pumpkin. My design is Poor Lil’ Punky” – isn’t
he cute? So cute that you might hate to poke him with
The magazine will not be out in the stores until the last week of September, but I was lucky enough to get some in advance.
There are lots and lots of fun projects in here – see those cute owls on the cover? Adorable! So many items to choose from – several bags, hot pads, a casserole carrier, stitcher’s caddy, quilts (of course!) and even some costumes for kids.
The good news for all of you is…you can purchase this magazine NOW on my website! AND…you can also buy a kit for Poor Lil’ Punky! The kit includes everything you need (including the fabric for the back and the muslin liner) to make the pin cushion, then you can choose your favorite filler when you finish. A couple of the fabrics may vary from the picture above, but they will be very similar. Remember, when ordering – the magazine and the kit are sold separately. The pattern is in the magazine and is not sold alone or with the kit.
Of course, if you love fall like I do – you may want to buy yourself a little fall gift – maybe a little pumpkin pin, pendant, or scissor fob!
They are also available online. So…time to do your shopping! Go to www.meandmystitches.com and see what you can find!
Have a great week!
