Crab Apple Hill pincushion

I have had a huge weekend with almost no time for any sewing. I got some hand stitching done on my 12 Red Robins wall hanging while on the train, but that was it. Hopefully next weekend I will be able to set aside a little more time.

Last week I did manage to put together the main part of this months pin cushion. It has a bit of a vintage feel which I quite like, although I am unsure about making the beaded flower to go on top. Jo in TAS has a nice picture of her completed pincushion here.

Please excuse the awful props - the light was terrible and I was trying to find any spot that would work!

Thanks for stopping by the blog! Love that cute little pincushion...I'm thinking I might need to make one for a stocking stuffer for Christmas!

Ack! I always do this -- post to my baby's blog as him (Elliot) and then comment on people's blog. So embarrassing...that was ME by the way up there...

I don't mind - Elliot can visit anytime he likes :)

The pincushion looks great, did you find pulling it together and stuffing it fiddly? There's got to be an easy way, I just don't know what it is. Looks great without the flower too, it's very pretty!
