Birthday Present

My sisters birthday was on Easter this year and my parents went to visit her and brought my gift with them. Since she's at the end of her PhD in entomology I knew she didn't have as much time to as she would like but I thought this neat pincushion/bucket would be something she could use if she found a few moments to sit and quilt. I mean everyone needs a break now and then! I got the pattern from this great tutorial and I absolutely love it. If you're in my inner circle expect one shortly! It really was an easy pattern to follow and turned out great. The only thing is my pincushion wasn't quite even and I'm what I did wrong, maybe I filled my weighted bag too full. Who knows? But all in all it turned out well and the sister reported she liked it. Success!
