I have finished the first two Pincushions as part of the Pincusion of the Month by
Quilt Fabric Delights.
I must admit I wasn't too keen on the first installment of the little owl or hedgehog. But since it is a monthly thing that I had paid for I soldiered on!! The strawberry pin is cute though.
The second pincushion is much more my taste and style. I just love Crabapple Hill Studio, so I have enjoyed very much making this one.
I really love covered buttons, especially when they have embroidery on them. Part of the flower is a tiny bead. The ribbon flower was fun, particularly all the beads that make the centre. The rosebud pin is adorable. Very sweet indeed.
Just in time for the next one to arrive in the next week or so.
I was able to stay home all day yesterday and today, so it has been wonderful to have a slower weekend and get many things done at home. I busied myself both mornings and got housework finished and then yesterday afternoon I was able to cut out some pattern pieces, make two curtain valances for the bathrooms and then finished the pincushion - pure bliss.
Just a little gardening now and then some more stitching I think.
This will probably be the last weekend like this until Christmas so I will savour every moment.
