A Couple of Pincushions

Don't you love pincushions! I know that I just can't make enough of them.

This first one is called 'Sweetheart Pincushion' and is from the book 'Ella's Home Place by Blackbird Designs'. I love this book and there's at least 2 or 3 more projects that I have on my 'To Do' list.

This second pincushion is called 'Lily's Pinkeep' and is from the book 'In Full Bloom by Blackbird Designs' (again). The original pattern used ric rac for the flower stem and some outlining, but I didn't have any - so in keeping with the 'makedo' theme, I used wool instead. Print Friendly and PDF

Basket of Flowers Wallhanging

I am guilty of not posting for some time. This time of year is very busy for us. The school year is coming to an end and the garden has to be planted, etc...,. I finally got around to finish piecing this wallhanging. It is a group project from a yahoo group I belong to. The center applique is 20" square and is called "Basket of Flowers'. It was designed by Rebecca Hoffman. I added the flying geese borders.

I participated in the 'Springtime Shop Around' and was the lucky winner of the above prize from the 'Quilted Acorn'! The lovely sewing machine caddy was chock full of all kinds of yummy quilting items. The shop hop itself was fun (even without winning the prize) as it gave me an excuse to check out some new shops that I had been wanting to go to. Be sure to give your local shop hops a spin.
