Novelty Pincushions

Friday has whizzed round again and I find myself unexpectedly on my own with hubby and daughter out for the evening. Which was a pleasant surprise as I can catch up on a few things. Already marked a box of work, updated a list for a school trip that I am orgainising to the Clothes Show Live, so for the rest of the evening it is some me time. So unusally a blog opportunity on a Friday.

I found this cute little book ages ago and I am having a go at some of the ideas. Last year I had a go at the sewing machine and made some changes, such as enlarging the patterns slightly, adding decoration with 3D paint, hand embroidery stitches and adding a subtantial wooden base to hold it steady. Thought you all would like a look at it.

The photo is perhaps a little over exposed but you can get the general idea. My next project is still the Autumn themed pincushion for Pincushion Challenge on flickr which I have also started, so fitting that in with the quilt.

The postal situation has certainly slowed things down so I am still keeping an eye open for items from U-Hnadbag ready for next months challenge and an item from the Kath Kidston website. Some lovely items on that site which are ideal for pressies.
Best go and make use of the quiet time, stitching in the ditch on Kirsty's quilt, glass of wine and some sewing music....mmmmm...right I'm off byeeeee.
