Well, I on the other hand have many different pincushions and I like to swap them, use them for different projects or keep some for pure pleasure as decorations on my shelves. Molly is the latest pincushion I have made. The pattern has been created by a very talented Lauren of Molly and Mama who is amazing at sewing with felt. Her creations are always unique, delicate and pretty. This pincushion is a pleasure to sew, the instructions are clear and so beautifully presented. This pincushion sits proudly on one of my shelves and makes me smile every time I look at it.
The little mat above I made for a private swap with a very talented girl from Poland. She is amazing at crafting with paper, something I am not good at. We arranged a swap of a few small things that we both like. It's a very simple mat with a reverse applique, a bit of hand embroidery and hand quilting. I just love this little cupcake piece and all the pretty petals around it!
I went through my craft books and magazines, checked a few crafty blogs and I think I found the pattern I would like to use for my new pincushion. I am going to put it on my To-Do list and when the time is right, I will stitch it and hang it in my sewing nook. As for now, I am working on a few interesting projects that I cannot wait to show you. Have a wonderful weekend! Larisa xox
