sewing machine withdrawal

I have been without my sewing machine for close to two weeks now.
It is getting a much-needed tune-up but I am getting the itch to be sewing again!
Needless to say, I don't have anything new to show you although I did come across a picture of this pincushion I made for my cousin.  I again used this great sprocket pincushion tutorial by Cluck Cluck Sew.  It is such an easy project to whip up and I love that I uses up some of my little scraps!

Since I haven't been able to sew, I have been sorting through my fabric scraps and cutting pieces for a couple quilts that I have plans to make.  I guess we'll see when that happens because I have so many projects I would like to do.

And this wonderful fabric bundle has been calling my name as well!
So much to do but no sewing machine to do any of it.
