somehow i came across this website. i think someone here might have posted about a "thimble pincushion" (which was great and easy to make). the quilt group especially liked it. i'm not sure. but the other ideas this lady has are just terrific. look at the site, but then go over to the right hand side and see what you can do with paint chips, or old gift cards, name badges, labels, how to make a crazy quilt w/coffee filters. i cant wait to show my homemakers unit. hopefully they can use a few of these ideas for monthly classes.
hope you like it as much as i did/do.
