My turn to shake...Pom Pom Blog Hop

I  hear Barbara Streisand singing...

Memories light the corner of my mind
Misty water color memories
Of the way we were...

Yes, the way we were.  What happened to those days?????  You blink, and your a victim of the horrible joke that life plays on us all!   LOL!!

One day we are sporting the baby oil and taking in the rays...

 
 
Then next, things have moved downward (they tell me it's gravity or some fool thing) and a bottle of SPF 50, so you don't sunburn. Ohhhhhhh, it's a lovely sight isn't it?     :-)


I just couldn't help myself, but use Amy Bradley's "All about me" one more time for this hop. My evil quiltin sista, came up with the idea of a pom pom bikini, although now she completely denies it!! Hummm...   have I finally managed to horrify her too?  LOL!!



 
                My reversible pillow tells it all. The sad story of my life!!
                   From the golden tan era to the cottage cheese thighs!  

 
It just wouldn't be the same without pom poms!
LOL!
Do you suppose this is what Clover had in mind,
 when they made the pom pom maker? 
 
 
While I was on a pom pom kick, I decided to play with a little something else.
 
 

I love pin cushions...so the wheels started turning. I started with a wooden craft box from any hobby store. While I was working on the zillion pom poms it took to cover it, the memory of those tissue paper flowers,  started dancing in my head.  Those of us who grew up in the 60's and 70's remember em. They were great big ones on sticks.  Hummm... the pom pom would make a fabulous center to a flower, now wouldn't it.

My really big pin cushion, has it's very own big pom pom flower. Since it's about 8" square and 18" tall, I shouldn't manage to loose it in my sewing room. Won't that be a nice change, for once.
                                                       :-)

 Let's have a give a way that reminds me of the spring, that hasn't managed to happen here yet!

Now this fun quilt, sure make me think of spring. If only Mother Nature would cooperate!
 
Leave me a comment and tell me if spring has sprung where you live.  On Monday April 30, the last day of our hop, I will pick a winner!
 
Please make sure you visit my fellow bloggers and check out their

  1. I LOVE your reversible pillow. Just laying it all right out :) And the pin cushion is monumental. You surely will not lose it! Wonderful projects. Spring is slowly making itself known here. Spring does not really come here until May and we have a week or so to go. Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. Your pillow and pincushion are my favourites!
    Spring is doing its best to enter our country, the netherlands, but it has a hard time doing so. Temperatures are going up and down, like shaking pom poms :>)
    Cheers!

  4. What a novel pillow, and the bikinis are a hoot! I am differently on the flip side, LOL! Thank you for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  5. You certainly made me smile today! Spring arrived very slowly but I think we can call it almost spring weather here! At least I decided so and planted a whole lot of flowers in my balcony... And when the tulips are out it is definitely spring!

  7. OK - there should have been a warning 'read while not drinking' just spewed my coffee with this one! I remember those days and can relate to the reverse side of that pillow - oh too funny!! And yes, the large paper flowers, too - you dear. Summer has alluded us her in the NorEast - the trees won't even bud outlet alone any flowers. And still cold!!

  9. Your Pom Pom bikini project made me laugh. That is the cutest little pillow. The flower is just perfect. I could use one of those. And no Spring has not sprung here, we had snow again over the last couple days and all my spring flowers froze. Oh, well!

    ReplyDelete

  11. Last weekend Spring decided to show up and start the party in the garden, leaf buds are unfurling the first flowers are smiling up at the sun and birds are nesting like crazy. The pillow struck a chord, all too true ans so funny.

    ReplyDelete
  12. You have made my day. I am still laughing when thinking of your pillow. You are surely a lady with humor
    And the spring has sprung even here in Sweden with lot of spring flowers and the birds are wild of joy and are busy nesting.
    Thanks for sharing and a for a great give away

    Thank you for sharing!

  18. If I had've been drinking my water, I think i would have blew it up my nose as I laughed out loud when I saw that awesome pillow! You have a wonderful sense of humor! I bet this one is one of the top 2 for the day! :)

    And that pincushion is fantastic!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me Furniture Store

    ReplyDelete
  20. YOU MADE ME SPILL MY COFFEE!! I am still laughing and am going to send those pics to my 3 daughters so they know what to expect in years to come. That is the funniest (and most psycho) thing I've seen in a long time. Now I feel a little better about my own pom project that took on a life of its own and is downright crazy. But, hey, I'm in good company, right? Loved your pillows and I KNOW you will be on Madame Samm's hit list today for most creative.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, aren't you the creative soul! I never imagined Pom poms as such an essential clothing item...giggle...you rock! Awesome pin cushion too! Spring has barely sprung...today we are getting rain instead of snow, so it must be Spring, right?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ok, I don't even know what to say ....OWWW....and like Debby above I did spill my coffee from laughing so much I cried...I cried, because leave it to you and your evil twin ...lol to come up with this idea...the only thing I regret is why I did not think of it...now I would not have made it ....but did not even think of it...you just kill me lol oh did you make something else....lol Oh did you have a question lol....Joan, I am so pleased to share my world with you and vice versa...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Very creative way to use the pom-poms! Still laughing!!!

  24. Oh dear..... I'm wondering when your evil twin was in my house spying on me and planning on exposing ME to the world! I can sooooo relate to this post in every cottage cheesy way! Thanks for the smiles today!

    ReplyDelete

  48. Rosemary B here:

    thank you for making me laugh... and covet the pin cushion

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh I would give you most creative today right now! Those pom pom bikinis are a riot, LOL. Gravity is not kind to that "all about me" chesty woman. You will have Amy smiling at this one.

    Spring here in NM is all over the place. It was 80 a couple days ago and will be again by the weekend, but this morning it's freezing outside. It's our windy season and the wind is so cold. The winds have been stronger this year than the past several years.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I could pose for your older lady. Love this pillow. And your pincushion...LOVE it. No spring here in Kansas yet. It is suppose to happen this weekend. Fingers crossed.

    ReplyDelete
  56. You have certainly made my day! I saw your most creative at stash manicure and laughed and laughed. Then I found out who made that and your pillow is reversible! It is the greatest! The pincushion is cute too and mine do seem to disappear quickly when they are hiding among all the stuff I need next to my sewing machine. Thanks for a fun start for the day. Hope yours is wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Your Pom Pom Pillow is hilarious...and hits a little too close to home!! haha...At least we can laugh about 'it'!! Thanks for the chuckle...ok, ok...it was a belly laugh! Yes, Spring has sprung...all the trees are flowering and the tulips are a riot of colour!! I'm loving it!!

  64. You are hilarious!! I love reading your blog. Spring has not sprung here in southcentral Kansas, we woke to a dusting of snow this morning.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I completely appreciate the pillow. I was having that exact conversation with DH yesterday as I was feeling all my joints hurting. Yes, Spring has sprung and is about to leave us. I was watching the dogwood petals drifting in the wind this morning and thinking that it's raining dogwood blossoms. (Love the ducky book.)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Your pin cushion is adorable. It is so neat and well, you did a perfect job. Just love it. The ladies.....LOL. I enjoyed seeing them, they surly made my day. I love them!!! They definitely get first place in my book. So creative, I thank you for sharing with us all and putting a smile on everyone face this dreary Wednesday.

    Thank you!

  68. Oh my! How cute are your gals! Great idea. The pin cushion is fabulous. Spring had sprung in central Georgia for sure. The pollen is everywhere! Thanks for the giveaway offering.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh I am laughing OUT LOUD for 10 minutes, at the cuteness and cleverness of your pillow and the pompoms!!! You are so creative and fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. :) your pom pom bathing suits are sew cute but I really love the pin cushion the best. As for our spring? Here in Texas it is here one day and gone the next. Air Conditioning on half the day and heat the rest. I can't even say morning or evening, yesterday the AC came on about 9pm but we knew to have our blankets/quilts ready for the wee hours of the morning.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I absolutely love it! What a fabulous reversible pillow :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. You just have to win the pom pom prize for unique and clever and hilarious with your bikini adorned pillows. Your pincushion is very cute too. Thank you for sharing. Happy Hearts are Creative Hearts...

  77. Love your pom pons! (I would have needed more than 3 to cover my fat self, lol!)

    ReplyDelete
  78. You certainly made me laught today. Great pillow.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Yes spring is here. But I had to SPRING to your site immediately because I knew it was your work--most creative. By far more creative than anyone would have thought. And of course you are shaking your pom poms!

    ReplyDelete
  80. OMG! I love your reversible pillow-so creative. Those tissue paper flowers-are they the same as the kleenex flowers we made of pastel colored kleenex as it was all the rage! Colored kleenex, now you can't purchase anything but white. Tissue paper is thinner and more translucent. I remember when "tennis shoes" came out and they were nothing but white, too! My sister loves ducks so that would be a perfect gift for her! From CA, thanks for sharing and jogging the memories!

  85. OMG! The bikini lady is absolutely hilarious! Fabulous idea. You brought laughter to many, many ladies today. Such a fun, fun project. I also love your pin cushion. If you lose this one amongst your fabric, then you'll know it's time to straighten up. ; ) Thanks for sharing your very creative projects with us.

  86. I'm afraid we have had spring long enough for Apple trees to bloom followed by cold wintry weather and back to spring again. Hope it's here to stay this time here in southwest Missouri. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Oh my! I love what you've done with those pom poms! I'm not talking about that pincushion though I love it too. It's given me an idea for another pincushion. I don't need one but I enjoy making them. Here is Southern Cal our winter is much like spring in most parts of the country. We are moving out of the rainy season and lots of warm sunny days. We do have many mornings where the marine layer is thick so it stays overcast. We call it May Gray and June Gloom but it goes away quicker the farther you get from the coast. I'm hoping the rest of the country gets to enjoy some spring before summer arrives!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Spring has Sprung. Thanks for the laughs with your pom poms. I agree it is a dirty trick to play on us. I'm still trying to figure out when it happened....giggle. I know I was just 19!!!!............now 66 and twice my size :( :( :)...it's all good.

    ReplyDelete
  89. What phenominal pom pom porn..oops I ment projects....lol....great job.

  103. Spring sprang and then it snowed. We're on our 3rd cycle of warm and cold, this morning it was 30, Sunday it was 54 in the AM. But this is very normal, we're all hoping the fruit blossoms will survive. Last year we had peaches and pears but no apples. So far it looks like we may even have cherries. But I got my long pants and turtlenecks out again cause I am cold. Loved your pillows. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  104. You made me laugh out loud and sit here by myself. Love the bikini!! So true..We don't really have spring here in Az. It just goes from winter to summer overnight. I miss all the flowers. Thank you for sharing..

    ReplyDelete
  105. Too funny. Congrats on being one of the chosen.
    Spring is here although we had a couple cool days. Just hope my tomatoes and peppers survive. Flowers are quite lovely right now. Thanks for the chance to win.

  110. It is the end of my day and your projects have really tickled me! I have a huge smile on my face and I am thinking your projects made you smile the whole time you worked on them. I remember those paper flower making parties in high school. Each class had to build a float (Lord, I cannot remember why, maybe spirit week). One year I hosted one of those flower making parties at my house. Lots of fun memories.
    Spring has come (and gone) in Phoenix. It is getting hot.

    ReplyDelete
  114. spring has sprung indeed !! love the ducky quilt, I have a granddaughter due to be born May 16th, her big sister loves duckies...I could make a new quilt for each of them :)

    ReplyDelete
  115. The little flowers are blooming but it is cold still! I love your ladies it gave me such a laugh, that is so me too! Part of life I suppose. I make lots of baby quilts so I can always use cute patterns and this one is really cute!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I could hear Babs singing as I was reading ... memories of the way we were
    My scales don't go that low - the numbers aren't there Now, that reminds me of how low can you go.
    I have laughed and laughed and laughed. My second husband told me that his first wife apparently resembled the "elderly" lady when she was 18. Apparently the gravity had already attacked her or that was his impression. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. (When I wrote that I first wrote stinking - Freud!)
    I adore pin cushions. I've been collecting pincushion patterns with the idea of making some pincushions for the boutique at our guild's next quilt show which is in June 2014. T think I'd better get started instead of collecting.
    Thank you very much for 1) collaborating with your sister with the creativity; 2) taking those ideas and creating a project; 3) making everyone LAUGH 4) creating an inspiring, fun, and useful pincushion; 5) sharing with the rest of us; 6) just being you; and 7) having a generous giveawy. Many, many, thanks!

  117. You really do have a wild and wicked sense of humour!! And yes, you are correct. Can't believe what has happened over the years! Love the pom poms and their placement. Your cushion is perfect.
    And your pin cushion is lots of fun too. How many pomp poms did you have to make and how much yarn did you use. Wow!

  123. LOL, your cushion is hilarious! The pincushion is fun and I'm sure you won't lose this one. Thanks for the laughs! Spring seems to be late here. We had too many below seasonal temperatures in April. Things are looking up now though. I should be able to go out in shorts and sandals tomorrow afternoon. I better make sure my legs and toes are ready for that!
