“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Hello again!  Just wanted to show you another couple of prizes for the PPPP-2016..........Our friends at the Fat Quarter Shop have climbed aboard and are sponsoring the Parade with a $50 gift certificate!  Thanks Fat Quarter Shop!

.....and that's not all.........we have this cool Gardening Book & Journal Set which includes the book about gardening and a matching journal with prompts to help you record the everyday miracles in your garden!
What does this set have to do with pin cushions or sewing???? NOTHING!  But isn't it cool????

We will also be giving away some notions and fabric....we will show you more prizes between now and the opening of the link-up..........tell your friends to come and check out the Perfectly Pleasing Pin Cushion Parade 2016! Link-up opens here on Labor Day!

Perfectly Pleasing Pin Cushion Parade2016 is off and Running!

" The years teach much which the days never know. "
--Ralph Waldo Emerson

So here we go again!  I have been remiss at my blogging so I don't have the following I once did but not to worry because my few loyals have said, "We're In! Let's do it Again!"......and so we shall! Last year 9 followers spread the word and we ended up with 26 bloggers who joined the parade so I have no doubt we will have another wonderful parade this year.

So on Monday, September 5th (Labor Day in the USA) the link-up page will be open and you can post your pincushions......
Did somebody say "Prizes"????? Well of course there will be prizes......and just like last year, there will be two (2) winners picked by Mr. Random himself......
So spread the word......and stay tuned.....huh?? What prizes??  Well.....some of them are a secret right now but here's a little hint...........look at this cool little book with 7 quick and easy designs using charms!  The patterns are for mini-quilts ranging from about 19x19 inches to 38x42 inches......also a lucky winner will get the Chevron Fat Quarter Bundle in 5 different colors!
In addition, My Sis Irene, at Hilachas is graciously giving another of her cookbooks this year.  "Mom how do Boil Water?" is a cookbook for novice cooks which literally explains what you can cook with boiled water!  The book has many easy and yummy recipes including Mexican food! Thanks Irene.....I know my kids still use your cookbook.

So, again....please spread the word and check back to see what other prizes you could win by joining the parade!

Perfectly Pleasing Pin Cushion Parade 2016?

" I praise loudly. I blame softly. "--Catherine the Great

I was just looking back at my posts (which I realize have not been many lately).........and noticed that it has been nearly a year since I hosted Ida's Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade...........

So this is a call to find out if there is any interest out there for a pincushion parade for this year.

Here are the basics:  I will open a linky party for all who are interested to post their pincushions.........take some pics of your favorite pincushion......or make a pincushion especially for the an antique pincushion, a new one.......there are no rules except whatever you link-up must be a pincushion(s).........a pincushion parade party!  These are the pincushions I showed at the parade last year....

And what is a party without prizes?  Of course there must be prizes! Check out this link for last years link-up party and see the great entries from last year.

Everybody loves pincushions? Right?  So c'mon.....tell me you want another party to show off your own pincushions in the Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade 2016.....

I'll be waiting to hear from you.........
