Pincushion

Just in case you missed out on reading about the giveaway "quilterie" is running, click here for  the details on how you can win a new copy of Kaffe Fassett's book "Quilt Romance".


Meanwhile, I can show you a cute project I have been working on recently. While in  San Diego  I bought  a little pile  of wool


that I used to make this



It is from a design by "Little Stitches".  If you were to turn the pincushion  over, you would see that the back is made from my challenge fabric.

I had to remind myself how to do blanket stitch.  The last time I sewed a blanket stitch was way back in my "country primitives" stage when I made this small dilly bag for sewing tools and small projects.


Don't forget, entry into the giveaway ends on Sunday at 9pm Sydney time.

It's adorable! Glad you found a way to use your challenge fabric on this unlikely project. It would have looked very strange on the front!

May you have:
A world of wishes at your command
God and his angels close at hand
Friends and family their love impart,
And Irish blessings in you heart.
