The Board

No I'm not the chairman, just re-using an old cork board that was in need of some TLC.

Here she is, in all of her raw glory.

I've used this cork board since I homeschooled my children, so it has been around the block a time or two.

I thought I would give it a little bit of cushion so I added some leftover batting.

Cover up.

hummm........ let's try this on for size.

nah.... too plain.

Yeah, yeah, spark it up with some red and white polka dots ribbon.

I won these very cute push pins from the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day.

Okay, now we're cooking............

Hope you are having a Happy Quilting weekend!

Oh LOVE the red and white. Good Call! :)

I'm so glad that you liked my headers! :) I was so tickled when I figured out how to do it. Don't you just love it when when you teach yourself something new?! I love the banner that you chose. It works perfectly. Hope you have a great weekend!
