FNSI and a new cushion....

I have always loved crazy patch but never been brave enough to try... so imagine my pleasure when Christine presented me with this gorgeous cushion made with velvet, silk, gold thread and other plushness and indulgence....  just look at all the texture in the different fabrics....


It was lovely to have this with me whilst I enjoyed FNSI with lots of you.... thanks Wendy for having us... vanilla slice is a favourite of mine too!

I stuffed this pincushion.... a UFO which only needed stuffing and stitching up the hole....


... that took 10 minutes or less even though it is quite a bit fat pincushion .....


... then I finished the binding on a secret swap giftie....


... and then I carried on with my pretty girlie quilt applique....


... oh ... and did I mention the size of my lovely little crazy patch cushion?


I have had the fortune to see quite a bit of Christine's beautiful miniature work.... so pleased to have one of my own now.... 


the scissor fob cushion is filled with emery sand so it sharpens the needle too....

Righto, Gotto Go.... need to check on Hubz... he is bottling the Irish Stout today.....


(yes... the brewery is also the laundry!)

  13. Lovely finish!!!! DH's wine finds its way upstairs when the basement is not warm enough. He feels that wine takes a lot less care than beer or stout and I/we enjoy the fruit(s) of his labors!! LOL! Hugs........

  16. Good idea having emery in the pin cushion, that might be easier to source then crushed walnut shells. Love both your pin cushions. We should have a show and tell of pin cushions on day!

  19. Hello Fiona,

    Lucky lucky you, love what Christine has gifted you. You got a lot done FNSI, hope the beer production is going well. Now I am not sure if Vanilla Slice and Beer go together but you could always try!!!

    Happy days.
    Bev.

  34. Oh my gosh Fiona - that little pincushion is a cutie - and so darn small! Well Done!!
    Um, be careful not to confuse the things in the laundry - don't drink the machine liquid or put the stout in the washer, LOL x
