Cross Another One Off

Last night, I finished my over-the-arm-pincushion from the (where else) Alabama Stitch Book. Since ASB projects use needles and thread I don't use for regular sewing, I thought it would be nice to have a special caddy to store my notions. I mostly sew at night while watching movies, so the pincushion is perfect for my perch on the sofa. Plus when I'm done for the evening, I can easily put all of my supplies away, pick up the pincushion, and store it on the mantle away from little, curious hands. For this project, I used some of my yardage of the organic cotton jersey. It feels so wonderful. The pincushion is supple and heavy in my hands. I'm pleased with the colors of the cotton jersey I chose, and I want to order more of it. Or at least a color card to tide me over.
Next up - a table runner.
