she's a maniac

What you need to know is that i'm making hexies. Lots and lots of hexies. More than a thousand. And to make said hexies, i need fabric squares. More than a thousand, with no repeats.  

Cindy and I are swapping some 2.5" squares for our hexagon adventures, and we decided to swap pincushions, too. She makes the most darling selvage pincushions. Look what she's sending me!

2" selvage pincushion

Seriously cute, right?  It's 2x2.  I can hardly wait to hold it in my little hand. Two by two! 

Here's what I'm sending her.


The fabric for the pincushion ring is a wee bit of Sketchbook from Anna Maria Horner's "Drawing Room" line of home dec. I bought a ton of it last year to make curtains for my kitchen, and I've had fun since then rationing what's left.  Of all her fabrics, this is my favorite.

It's mesmerizing. Good for daydreaming and otherwise letting your mind wander. Whenever I look at it, I see new patterns and different details. For example, I just noticed this. 

say cheese

Is it just me, or is it smiling?  And a bit maniacally, too .


  1. Yup! It is smiling in that clown in Poltergeist sort of way! Shivers....

  2. Cindy does make the best pin cushions. Yours is a cutie, patootie! Do you need any more 2.5" squares? I could send you a few!

  3. Indeed, she does. I'd love more squares, and we could totally do a teeny swap for a pincushion ring :)

    I'll email you.
