I've discovered another new addiction, one not as big as the dishcloth one, but nearing it... ;)
I've discovered how neat it is to make pincushions... yes, I know that makes me weird and slightly unusual (I didn't use the word crazy, but you could... LOL).
Yesterday I went to the local op shop and discovered 3 little ramekins that were perfect for making pincushions and at 50c a piece I could hardly leave them there, could I?! :)
So I spent the afternoon making pincushions, while my 3 girls made coupons and cards for father's day.
number 1 pincushion
(with added blood when I pricked my finger)
Number 2 Pincushion (the cupcake!)
Number 3 Pincushion
(I used some quilting scraps that my friend Cathy gave me - so easy!)
Number 4 Pincushion
Speaking of addictions, I have another confession. I LOVE teacup's and so you'll understand why my heart did a flip when I saw this little set at the same op shop I got the little ramekins from.
Isn't it gorgeous! I just love the delicate little pastel flowers. I couldn't leave it there and so I brought it home to join my little collection. :)
And look at this gorgeous bullion embroidery book I won on trademe! Take special care to look at the second picture. My heart about flipped out of my chest when I saw this pattern - it's a must make!!!
I trust everyone else is having a fantastic weekend and that the dad's out there (probably none read this blog) are having a great father's day! :)
