Pincushion Pals

Last Saturday I wanted something that I could do sat in front of the Television. I went up stairs to see what needed finishing and spotted this little gem. I bought several months ago and the shop has since shut down. So I doubt that I will find another. I wasn't sure which felt to use so I got my hubby to choose. He settled for a bright flowery felt which he thought went well with the camper van theme. It is sitting on my mantelpiece at the moment.

Well it could not really stop there could it? Saw a pink ramekin sitting next to the camper van to that got the felt treatment too. I think that it would look great as a .......

Cupcake!

What do you think?

I have not made one of these for a few months and I really enjoyed it. Sophie soon had her eye caught with this little cutie and wants to know what I am going to do with it. I am going to list both of these and make Sophie a smaller cupcake which she is less likely to drop. The cupcake is quite large you see and therefore bigger than her hands to hold. I have three more lined up by my arm chair waiting to have the 'make-over' treatment!

I went to my sewing group tonight and finished all of the applique heart squares plus nearly half of the log cabin squares. So progress is being made. I hope to take some pictures tomorrow in better light.

Many thanks for all the lovely comments about Mr Tickle. Sophie is really excited to hear the competition result on Friday. Tomorrow she is wearing her pyjamas to school for a story and will be having hot chocolate too! Very nice.

Those are wonderful! Love the campervan especially - possibly the most popular vehicle in blogland. Sorry for misunderstanding your email - what a silly sausage. I was in Burwell just today funnily enough. Emma x
