Well, I had a roaring time making pincushions over the weekend. Allow me to introduce the little beauties to you. From left to right: Strawberry Pincushion, a little pumpkin pincushion and last but definately not least, the Pin Blossom Pincushion. I got the instructions for the little pumpkin from Mary Kathryn, but you can also find instructions here. Both the Strawberry and Pin Blossom turned out really well, but I’m afraid I didn’t use enough stuffing in the pumpkin so it’s a bit flat.
While assembling the little strawberry, I decided to make it into a scissor fob because I’m always losing my needles. I’m so proud of how the Pin Blossom turned out as I had a really difficult time a) figuring out the instructions and b) assembling the pieces. But then again, I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed! Here’s a close-up of the Pin Blossom.
This afternoon I baked some Peanut Butter Shortbread cookies and since the Good Husband walked in they’ve been disappearing at an alarming rate. Good thing I took a pic before he came home! Whenever I bake cookies I have to put them somewhere where he can see them as soon as he walks into the kitchen or he tells me that I *hide* the cookies!
