From one lonely orphan block........

 I needed to make a pin cushion for an pin cushion swap -in a hurry.  I unpicked the stitching back to the middle section for the pin cushion.
 Added a bit of bling to finish it off.

With the remaining corners I made 4 coasters and with the remaining 2 middle/side sections I made the mug rug.
That is one more thing out of the UFO cupboard, a pin cushion to swap, and  items to add to the Christmas gift box.

Well now, that's very creative! Great way to use up an old block that was just sitting and look at all the things you made from that one block.
