Pin Cushion

I picked today to begin quilting and working out again. Don't really think they have anything to do with each other. It just seemed like a good day to start doing things again. I have not sewn since Christmas. Somehow, when I don't use things, they get lost. How can they get lost when they have not been touched. I think some Monkey or another has been into my stuff again or maybe it was a Manx. A lot of stuff was pushed off of the back of the sewing table. Looks like the work of a tailless feline to me. One of the missing objects was my pin cushion. I was putting my needles into a little glass saucer my mom's friend made for me. (I really should have taken a picture of it too) The saucer just wasn't right. I needed a pin cushion. There are lots of homemade pin cushion patterns on the Internet. There are some really cute needle holders made from soft drink bottle lids and felt. I may make some of them later. Tonight, I needed an instant pin cushion cuz I'm lazy like that sometimes. The picture above is my roll up pin cushion. I rolled up a rectangle of quilt batting and then rolled the roll in fabric and tied it with crochet thread - viola, pin cushion.
Know of any instant crafts?
