Mini Log Cabin Pin Cushion and Day 2 of the "Stamp on It" Blog hop!

After a full day of raking, rolling and hauling hay, I was more than ready to finish up my little Log Cabin Pincushion and put it to good use.

I like really big pincushions. I had some small strips of Pam Kitty Love Fabric that I had left over from my Back to School with Pam Kitty Civil War quilt and a vintage red button, so I used them to make a Log Cabin Pincushion. It measures 5 1/2" square. One can never have enough pincushions or scissors! I really enjoyed after all that hot dusty work today, just sitting outside and working on my little Dutch girl Redwork and sipping some Mint Tea. The simple pleasures of farm living and a needle and thread!

I hope that you had the opportunity Wednesday to check out all the Stamp On It blog hoppers. These ladies are so creative! I can't wait to see what everyone has come up with for tomorrow. Here is Thursday and Fridays schedules:
