I decided to challenge myself and picked up the Nancy Zieman IN-THE-HOOP sewing book. I was going to make the suggested pincushion but the crazy patch was the first one so I decided to try it. I made it with some scraps and cut some from regular fabric. I used 8 fabrics. At first, I thought I only needed 6. Then when I went to put them in order, I realized I needed 2 more. I think I might use different seasonal fabrics to make more. I am still considering a gift for my trip overseas this summer and this might be a nice idea.
The first 6 fabrics...oops..need more!

I think I will make one for Margaret. Maybe cupcakes...or owls....or dinosaurs...Or a combo of all three!
