And then there were three ......

First there was this -

And then there was this -

And then there was this -

As you might guess, I seem to have a thing about pin cushions at the moment. So I've been playing around with some felt, buttons, beads, trims and crochet. And I've had plenty of fun doing it too as they're so quick and easy to make.

It all came about because I bought a copy of Pretty Little Pincushions which led me to Jen Segrest's blog and the pin cushion pool on Flickr. And an obsession was born.

Now I'm expanding my horizons beyond felt, LOL, and have signed up for the Pincushion Club at Quilt Fabric Delights which looks like more fun! And I have big plans for certain items from Pretty Little Patchwork ......

In other news, I've had an award from the lovely Elisa!

School holidays have started here so my son's at home now. My DH has also managed to get the school holiday off - it's a scary prospect to be spending the next 6 weeks with him! LOL! I don't think we've spent that much time together each day since we were students!


Barbara said...

Wow, your DH has the full six weeks off? I'm not sure how I'd feel about that either - LOL!!

Thank you so much for the award. :) You're so kind!

Your pincushions are adorable. Have fun!
