Logically speaking

What does one do while they are excitedly waiting for their first sewing lesson?

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!

Love the pincushion very cute. As you get the hand of sewing you will totally get the understanding of a bargin when you see it. Great job on the fabrics you choose can't wait to see what you whip up in the sewing department.:) Good luck.
