August was a busy month with journeys and family visits, so I´m a bit behind with my blogging and blog visits. However I´m really pleased to take part once again in The Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade hosted by Ida at My Sister Made Me do it.
I don´t have many pincushions but I made this one last week with Ida´s parade in mind.
It is a free design called May Flowers Pin Cushion and can be found here. I made the pattern a bit larger because I didn´t have the 18ct fabric called for and used a piece of 28ct from my stash.
My Mr Hexie Hedgehog is used more as a paperweight than a pincushion as he is quite heavy but I like his bright colours.
Next is this little cushion which started out as a crazy patchwork `work of art´ but it fell by the wayside and ended up in the UFO drawer only now to see the light of day.
and my favourite at the moment is my strawberry pincushion.
I´ve seen loads of these on the Internet and had to make one, They are quick and easy and make useful gifts
If you would like to see some really lovely work or show your own pincushions, do visit Ida for the details and link up before the 15th September.
Until next week.
