finally, some sewing to share

I have been a little slack of late with my sewing for the pincushion of the month club. However, when Leanne's design arrived in my mailbox I was thrilled. I love Leanne's designs and I think the fabrics she chose were just gorgeous.



I made the plain pincushion first to have a go at the ric rac, and discovered I was terrible at it! Thankfully Leanne put a tutorial on her blog since then and I was able to make sure the rest were a bit better!


After stitching two of the other designs, I realised just how big the pincushions were going to be. That, combined with the fact that I have many pincushions already, led me to change things up a bit. So I decided to make them into a wall hanging instead.

Today I put it all together and started on the quilting.

Hopefully it will be my finish for February.

Has anyone else been watching this show? I love it!


Hope you all had a good weekend!
