Crochet a tomato pincushion, logically! This is the tomato pincushion pattern in the May 2008 Crochet Today magazine. I used a very small amount of Caron pouder in red and RHSS in green. The pincushion worked up really quickly...in about an hour.
I also walked to a fabric store on my lunch break to pick up some fabric for my first class. There was a 75% off clearance rack with pre-cut stacks of fabric that I couldn't resist.
There are 2 yards of the striped fabric and it was originally marked as $22. I paid $5.50 for it. There are 2.5 yards of the dark blue fabric and it was originally marked as $10. I paid $2.50 for it. Four and a half yards of fabric for $7.50 doesn't sound bad to me, though I don't have much experience in the fabric department.
Tomorrow are sewing lessons! Woot woot!
