What would you spend your Pin Money on?

My dear Father-in-Law was a great collector of many things. Among them were antique radios, bicycles, tools and even piggy banks. He loved all his little finds. After his passing, I was lucky enough to receive one of his little treasures ~ a Vintage Lefton Pin Money Bank Circa 1950. It will always remind me of him and I will treasure it always.

Pin Cushion Guilt

I have to say I'm loving the little bunny pin cushion I received in the Spring in February Bunny Theme Swap . I use it every time I'm at the sewing machine. Today, I've been busy working on the Spring in March Bird Theme Swap so a lot of sewing ...

 (some ripping ~ shhh ...) 

and pinning going on and I have to say, I'm beginning to feel a little guilty each time I stab that adorable little bunny! Can anyone relate? or is it just me ? ~ 

I may need therapy!

This mug rug pattern was inspired by my wish for spring to arrive as soon as it can! Especially with all this crazy winter weather we have been experiencing. I hope you will give this pattern a try and that it will add a little bit of "Spring" to your home.
