I finished 2 mouse pincushions. I started them several years ago with scraps that I had been given by a friend. One was intended for me and the other for my sister. I brought them with me to my sisters and finished them. Yeah! Another UFO done. That makes 5 UFOs completed for my PHD in 2018. One UFO for February!
My sister is a research scientist – so she picked the one with “atoms”. She only had 2 glass pins for the eyes – so I’ll add the “eyes” to mine when I get home. They are more like flying mice as they refuse to stand up … oh well.
Edit: My sister said that she just wiggled the aquarium gravel around to make the mouse stand up. (I put aquarium gravel in a little pouch to give the mouse some weight … I really didn’t want a flying mouse pincushion!)
PHD in 2018
This weekend, I will provide links to all of the bloggers that joined in the PHD in 2018. I had planned to do this at the beginning of each month, but working on an IPad mini is not easy, so it will have to wait until I get home and work on my computer.
Leaders and Enders
While I’ve been at my sisters for the past 2 weeks, I have been working on Leaders and Enders and have about 40 4-patches done. I love making progress on a project without doing a lot of mindless work!
