"You've got mail"

Look what arrived late last week! My second pincushion kit from Sarah.

I am a little nervous about tackling it as I have to make a fabric covered button, do some beading And make a ribbon flower - all three of which I haven't tried before - but Sarah has already posted a little tutorial on how to make the fabric covered button which looks pretty simple. I am glad I have joined this club as I think it is going to force me to learn some new techniques. Hopefully I can at least get started on it this week!
Has anyone else started on this one?

Good to see you on here... but shame on you for not telling me sooner! Looking good, I never did see the fish before you gave them to the girls!

Wow, it looks fantastic! I hadnt seen this one yet so it is great to see what you got. Good luck with it and I hope you will make it in a breeze!

Thanks Annie. I shall have to tell Mum I am on here too!

Hi Melly and/or Rosie - who is it behind that name?! Thanks for visiting, I too hope the pincushion will be a breeze. I am looking forward to having a go at your pincushions soon

Hi Renee,
Found your blog through the Pin Cushion of the Month club and really love it. I have exactly the same feelings as you regarding this pin cushion. I am waiting for a solid chunk of time to start on it as I think it may require a bit more concentration than usual. I actually almost said the exact same words as you when I described it on my own blog.
I also read about your Banana bread made with All Bran and I am about to go and give it a go right now.

How absolutely gorgeous. Crabapple Hill designs always have that special something. Have you made this yet I wonder?
