A passion for pincushions
today I can show you a little private Pincushion Swap with Marie-Jozé . I sent her the Heart Pincushion/Needle-holder and yesterday I got this little cutie :
Isn’t it sweet? I love this little sheep! A lovely one to my collection! :-)))) Thanks Marie-Jozé!
Here is the one she got from me:
For the One Project a Month I wanted to sew some more pincushions and what I had in mind was Cup Cakes. First I tried the pattern from Cindy Taylor Oates :
A little yoyo and a twisted ribbon as embellishment is a neat idea, she also suggests a ribbon flower, but that is something hard to find around here.
Then I made one from Tonne Finnanger’s pattern in her book Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle:
It is suggested to sew berries on top, but I didn’t have that either, so I made another yoyo and I think it looks just as nice!
I also wanted to try this pattern:
It is in the magazine Handmade 25/11. But I won’t get it done this week due to some appointments…I hope the two Cup Cakes pincushions are all right as my projects for February!
About my passion for little/miniature quilts…
It seems like I just can’t stop sewing them at the moment! Yes, I made another little top! If you ask me when, well, I’d say “while you were sleeping”!!! These little doll quilts and wall hangings make me so happy!
I wish you a lot of time to spend in your sewing rooms so you can give your sewing machines the love and attention they need! ;-)))
Until next time!
