I couldn't not stitch for long. I saw really cute felt pincushions on Paula Hewitt's blog and had to play. Her blog led me to this and this and this and this!
Not only are they fun but they recycle: The ones with green bottoms are made over bottle caps and the little pink pincushion fits on your finger and is made from a plastic pull tab. I'm not out of bases and tabs! Oh, and I filled them with bits of minced up wool felt scraps or the cotton from the top of my vitamin bottles (it's real cotton).
I made all three last night. One went into the mail this morning and another was given as a gift this afternoon. I wanted to get these done for those purposes, so they're simple, but, oh, the ideas! I think I may have seen a bottle cap lurking in the recycle bin!
