Crazy Pincushion

Last week Val's pincushion base arrived at my house

Val is a new blogger..... I love the new teacup fabric she has just bought
- pop over HERE and have a look -
do say Hi and welcome!


Val is wanting us to sew a bit about where we live.  I am just outside Toowoomba which is called the 'Garden City' - our largest festival is the Spring Carnival of Flowers....
~ this is what I added to the pincushion ~


~ lots of little french knots in those sunflowers ~


Now it's on its way to DeeDee in Texas, USA
DeeDee does an amazing assortment of crafts - pop over HERE and have a look
~ happy travels ~

Sue has already finished her round of Marina's pincushion
that must be the happiest pony I have ever seen
pop over and see it HERE

Stitching day for me.....

Lovely bright sunflowers to brighten the sewing space. Perfect contribution from a resident of Garden City in the Sunshine state.
The pincushions look like they are a lot of fun already.
