Lots of little things

Very fun and busy week.  I've been getting back into the groove of having the shop open on regular hours and gearing my day to quilting.  This past week saw a new addition to the family in this wonderful little guy.

I call him Pokey.
The longarm needed a stable pincushion that would hold onto the longarm bars.  Pokey is working out great as his legs just hangout over them.

Just hanging out.

Now I don't have to worry about looking for the pins all the time.  He gives me someone to talk to as well. lol

Then I decided to check out what scraps I had hanging around. After discovering left over quarter circles from the OH HO quilt I have been working on ( Just have to find the right border fabric) came up with this new quilt.                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
Bright and colorful.

 Tyler calls this one the Buoy Signs.  He figures it is a warning to all ships in the area.  Made me laugh.  Once again on hold until I can find the right fabric for the borders.  It is going to make a great kids quilt when it is finished.
Look mom, almost perfect corners.

Then of course since it was scrapy week and what can I make next. Out came the scrap bucket again and this cute little table topper and 4 matching pot holder/trivets were made.

Perfect for the sun room lunch table.

I love using up scraps.
So all in all it was a productive week.  I've put my scrap busting techniques and ideas to work and had fun all at the same time.  A perfect mid week review watching the snowfall in our wonderful Canadian winter.  All is good.
