It's All About Me, Me, Me....My Day!

Amy Bradley (you can find her blog HERE) created
a fun little character for us to get creative with...
Thanks, Amy!
Madame Samm (you can find her blog HERE
took that fun little character
and created a blog hop for us...
It's All About Me
Thanks, Madame Samm!
Marlene (you can find her blog HERE)
is the hostess for this fun little character
who is the star of this blog hop.
Thanks, Marlene!

Me, Me, Me
(you can find my blog...oh, uh...you are already HERE)
took that fun little character and made this
sewing machine cover. I started with a pattern,
really I did, but somehow I veered off to do my own thing....
I should have stuck with the pattern. LOL!

I made ME into a matching pin cushion (though my chest size is definitely
not as large as this lady's.)  THANK GOODNESS there was 
no glue gun involved in the making of this pin cushion!
