Pincushions

I went to visit Catherine yesterday....
Everytime I visit her I come away so inpsired.
I didnt take any handwork with me, as we were going to have a craft day... I was just too tired after a weekend with a sick boy.. lots of sleepless nights. Catherine showed me some books and we talked about blogland and handcrafts. Very inspiring to meet up with people with similar interests! 

So I came away feeling like I wanted to make some more gifts for my Christmas stash that Im in the process of buiding up. These pincushions are inspired from the book Scandinavian Stitches. I didnt use the pattern I just looked at the photo and created from there.
They are different sizes and I have added some of the little square to the back of the pincushion too.. just for a nice little touch.

and


and of course

I had to add my new labels....


and


I just love adding those little tags... they give such a professional look.

Welcome to my new readers! What a compliment it is when I see you have added me to your following list.

The next Full of Hearts block will be up on Thurs/Fri 14th, 15th July... depending where you are living.

Happy sewing

Those are lovely pincushions. It is fun to look @ a piccie and wing it rather than following instructions.
