Another Win and Some Mice

I won another giveaway!!!  This one was 4 fat quarters from Cotton Cocktails.  I just received the package...

Aren't they gorgeous?  Thank you Hazel!

On another note, just had another sew-in yesterday where I was really frustrated.  I worked on one paper piecing block (for the Summer Sampler Series) for over 4 hours.  I will post a picture of it at a later date.  So what did I do to calm down?  I made some mice of course.

The tutorial to make these pin cushions can be found at the Byrd House.


  1. Love your pretty quarters!! I understand your frustration. I was trying to figure something out on my own yesterday and just gave up. BUT!!!! I found an easy tutorial online later that day.
    Happy Ending!!
    Your mice are very cute!
    Love Di ♥

  2. Congrats on such a pretty win! Love your little mice, looks like a great calming down project - I hate fighting sewing projects, lol!

  3. Congrats on you win! The fabric is beautiful.
    The mice are adorable :) Thanks for the link to the tutorial.

  4. Those are really pretty FQs.

    I love the cute mice with their eyes, tails and ears now.
