Pinaholics Anonymous Meeting #2

Howdy everyone, hope you all had a great weekend!  I had a heck of a week.  Lots of sewing, lots of cleaning, lots of toothache LOL

It's time for another PA meeting!

If this is your first time here, let me briefly explain to you what this is all about.  This is a new series I am starting to share what I have pinned to my boards on Pinterest that I find interesting and inspiring.  I will feature sewing related pins that may be tutorials, tips, tricks, or ideas (but I am partial to tutorials!)

So without further ado, let's begin our second PA Meeting!
