Sharpen needles, Get thready, ....... Sew!

Ready to Sew A Bit and send along?

In THIS POST I explained about the base of the pincushion. 

I know some of them are already ready and waiting to be sent....  In case you need a little inspiration......

Marina has done hers:  

There is also a picture of an earlier crazy pincushion she had made as a swap HERE

Other inspiration can be found at Sandi's blogpost HERE where she made a needlecase....

Michelle has made a lovely fun needlebook with felt circles and wool HERE

Sue Spargo has just heaps of pictures all through her blog HERE, and of course

Kaaren's blogpost HERE where you can find instructions on attaching shapes, even some patterns of shapes.  As Kaaren says - the sky's the limit.

There are 3 groups of us and everyone is listed in my sidebar with links to their blogs so you can visit everyone easily to get inspiration from each other and also encourage one another. 

I love comments (I think we all do) and I always reply to them - be sure to have your comments on No Reply (see Chookyblue's instructions HERE) and feel free to add your pictures to the Flickr account HERE.

There are others who have said they plan to sew along too making their own so we would love to see your artworks too.....

My base is base is ready for posting:

The groups have been sorted and emails gone out - let me know if yours hasn't arrived!
...Whether you make this on your own or in a group I hope you all have lots of fun.....

My camera is home and there is lots to show.... read you soon.....

Thanks for the links. Definitely lots of inspiration. I have posted my base on the flickr group. Now to get it ready to send on.

Hi Fiona, I think where you have said "be sure to have your comments on No Reply" it should read something like "make sure your profile has the show email box ticked so people can reply to your comments". I am very excited. I am waiting on some pure wool felt that I ordered on the internet. Should be here this week.

Hi Fiona,

Here is a link to the four pincushions my Canadian group made.

It was so much fun! I made mine into a sewing case.

Have ladies!
