Martha Stewart & Moving

This puny little pin cushion was really a thorn in my side today. What a contestant on Project Runway could make in ten minutes, I worked on this sucker for upward of 5 hours. My back hurts, my fingers have been poked with push pins, I swore and stopped loving my sewing machine for like 15 seconds while trying to learn to thread the machine...and I did it all for this: a really messy and uneven pin cushion. Move over, Martha Stewart. My pin cushion could kick your pin cushion's ass.

And yes, I feel compelled to tell you that I think I'm recovered. Forget 3 stints in treatment and years of therapy. All ya need is 6 hours to spare and a little sewing. I'm so domestic!


Oh, and FYIsies, I'm moving this weekend. So, I prob won't be around much over the next few days, but will try to touch base periodically when I want to get out of cleaning.

You know you love me, xo xo

Right on, you domestic goddess! I happen to like your little pin cushion. There's something about sewing machines that has always scared me. Stop it! I don't want to talk about it!

I thought Donut Falls cured you? ;)

It *is* a rather lovely pin cushion. Feel very proud ;) Good luck with the move! Make sure to strategically make other people do all the work, while still looking productive...Lemme know if you need any pointers, I have it down to an art! JK ;)

love the pin cushion! keep sewing! don't compare yourself to Project Runway. They are sewing gods. But you, my dear, are at least a sewing empress. !

Love the pincushion. It's cute, sweet, and just divine. Remember, we all have to start somewhere. I bet even those sewing gods at Project Runway and Martha Stewart started with the likes of pincushions or maybe even a small pillow (I think I did that once at my one futile attempt in sewing). Keep at it, and you'll reap the rewards.

Good luck on the move. Moving can be stressful at times, so I hope it goes well.

L, the button on the pin cushion isn't vintage, but it desperately wants to be. It's actually a $1.96 knock off at Walmart! But it's SO CUTE and comes in all different colors. ;)

Penny said...

So pretty! It is also very stylish. You are impressive. I like the colors and button, so I am your fan. Take each day one at a time with the move. if you think or look too far ahead it can be overwhelming. Maybae one day at a time it can be fun!

KC Elaine said...

OMG BRIE, where did you get that shirt from Jackie's blog???? LOVE it!!! I WANT IT! As in, I'm jealous! also, I'm so ready to take you up on an offer to help me get that swimsuit. I emailed the maker, but she hasn't written back. :( Can you get a hold of her for me please, or work your magic in other ways por favor? thanks!! (oh yeah, and send me your shirt...)

jana bananas said...

I'm sorry, Brie can't answer the blog right now. She will return your post as soon as possible.

Har har. But I can answer your Brie shirt question, because I was with her when she bought it. She bought it at Buckle. And it is perfect on her. I am proud to say I had a say on her purchase that day. :)
