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.
I love the May Flowers pin cushion :) Thank you for providing the link to the chart - this has became a "must stitch" on my list!
Wow.....what beautiful detail on all your pincushions! They are all so unique! They are definitely a wonderful addition to the parade. Thanks for linking up and Good Luck!ReplyDelete
o these are just adorable! And remind me that I haven't a single pincushion. I think I just found a first project whenever my machine is up and running! Thank you for the freebie link; it's very beautiful. :DReplyDelete
Beautiful pincushions. Is the May flowers counted cross-stitch or needlepoint? It's gorgeous. All of your pincushions are lovely. Thanks for sharing them with us.ReplyDelete
Such pretty pincushions Sheryl, there is no end to your talent , every thing is beautiful .ReplyDelete
Oh I love this Strawberry Pincushion too, but also the little Hedgehog.ReplyDelete
These are all so gorgeous and what's even better they are useful too! I love the May Flowers one and the colours you chose are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Gosh, Sheryl! What lovely pincushions you have. May Flowers must have taken a while to stitch, and it was well worth it! And I love your mini gingham Mr Hexie Hedgehog too, such pretty colours! I'm glad the crazy patchwork pincushion has found the daylight too .... again, so pretty! And your strawberry is so lifelike!ReplyDelete
I'm off to visit some of the other links .... glad you've told us all about the "Parade"!
Your May Flowers pincushion is superb, Sheryl. The stitching is amazing and I love the colours you used. Your Mr Hedgehog pincushion is adorable, love the teeny hexagons. I too, love strawberry pincushions; yours is sweet. It sounds as if you have been enjoying your Summer, how lovely to enjoy the sights here, there and everywhere; and enjoy visits from family. So happy to visit your lovely place again and have a peek at your amazing stitching, Sheryl!ReplyDelete
Great variety in those pieces. You always have such cool ideas and perfect execution. I'm in love with your hedge hog!ReplyDelete
Beautiful pincushions. It would be hard to choose a favorite, but the hedgehog would be right up there.ReplyDelete
your new pincushion is just lovely... so are the others but I am impressed with the new one specially made for the parade...ReplyDelete
You have done some beautiful pin cushions. Always finished off lovelyReplyDelete
Beautiful "floats" in your parade. Thank you for showing them.ReplyDelete
Your pincushions are all so sweet !!:) Thanks for sharing the link to Mayflowers, it's a beautiful design. I don't have a single pincushion or needle book. I made my first pincushion and needle book and gifted those in exchanges. It is easy to crochet up a small pincushion but I still haven't done that.ReplyDelete
All the pincushion are so beautiful. My favourite is the strawberry, too.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Manuela
These are all beautiful pincushions! Love them.ReplyDelete
Oh, you have so many lovely pincushions, Sheryl! I think the little hedgehog is adorable, but I love all of them--such a great variety! I hope your September slows down a bit--August was way too busy for me, too, but September looks promising :)ReplyDelete

Such a fantastic pincushion parade. All of them are so beautiful and have such bright colours. I can't even say which would be my favorite. Maybe the May Flower one? Or maybe the strawberry one? Impossible to say, lol. You were doing a great job on all of them, Sheryl.ReplyDelete
