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!

  1. Love those little mice, and yours will stop flying soon. It will be fun to see who else is playing along on the ufos. Love your progress…now back to my sewing table.
