How procrastination can lead to good things

Have I ever mentioned that I don't like binding? I think it's possible I have. And right now I've got two things waiting to be bound and finished. But I. Don't. Want. To.

So I decided to go with my lazy procrastinating feeling and start an entirely unnecessary (read: fun!) project. I wanted to try three things I've been curious about but afraid to try: paper piecing, tiny piecing, and flying geese in a circle. 

Pincushion, perhaps?

I LOVED it. It was so easy and fun and precise. I didn't think I would like it, and I thought the littleness would be intimidating but it wasn't at all. Isn't it pretty? And yes, shut up, I know I'm obsessed with rainbows. Sue me.

I think this little guy will end up being a square pincushion for my doll quilt swap partner. 

In other news, I've got plants coming out my ears, a baby shower present to sew, and pillow ideas to come up with for a one to one swap I'm doing with my friend Elizabeth. That's not including those pesky two items waiting for binding. Busy, busy!

Fandabeedozee is a great word. Adding it to my mental dictionary NOW.

Mini flying geese are very cute. I've just found your blog and I am totally loving the rubik's cube pincushion in your header. Have you posted about it all?
