Hi... I'm SkiNNy...

And I'm a PiN CusHioN.
I've wanted to make a  l-o-n-g  &  s-k-i-n-n-y  PiN CusHioN for ages... so I squeezed it in this month.
I needed to add an "April" item to my challenge list too.

I also tweaked the Reindeer Gift Bag template drawing slightly so now it's available as a FREE PDF pattern. You can print a copy by clicking HeRe... or by visiting the sidebar... under TuToRiaLs... then select "Christmas Gifts".

Narelle hosts this monthly online group called...1 Xmas Item a Month.
I love it because I have lots of small gifts on hand all ready waiting at Christmas time.
I squeezed in a small "Reindeer" embroidered gift bag this month.
It's my own design & a real little cutie I think.
You can see what the other "ELVeS" made this month

I visited Wendy & her friends last night for a virtual SeW-In.
It's always FuN & I usually get a project finished each month... but this time I worked on the final applique block in the TraFFiC JaM QuiLT.  I changed the original pattern slightly by adding a "motorcycle".
Master 5 LoVeS motorcycles... especially GReeN ones... lol
The quilt will become a birthday gift at the end of JuNe.
I just need to do a little more blanket stitch today... then I'll be ready to piece it together... yippeee....
Drop over to Wendy's blog... HeRe... 
to see the other FNSI-ers projects.

The Top HaLF

of the quilt that is my current project is called... Traffic Jam... & it's now complete.
I did however change the School Bus to an Ambulance... but every traffic jam needs an ambulance in attendance I think...
The top and bottom halves are mirror imaged. Now onto the middle section... yippee...
