Happy Friday to everyone! I am absolutely delighted to be back on the blog again. I am sorry to say that I have had lots of computer problems and temporarily lost all my files! I almost cried at the thought of loosing my family photos. Now that I have them back, I am delighted. Backing up my files will certainly take on a higher priority in future!!!
I have been working on lots of quilty goodness but not alot has been finished. I did however make the most adorable pin cushion that I can share with you!
I chose to applique a little teapot on my pin cushion using some of my favourite fabrics and a linen background. The sides are in a lime green numerical Japanese fabric and linen for the base.
I tried to embroider a flower in the middle of the teapot and I outlined the teapot using my favourite perle 8 cotton. I used “Three Dolls Pincushion Party” pattern designed by the gorgeous Louise Pappas. The pattern provides lots of applique designs for various pin cushion sizes. It also provides lots of opportunities to embroider, if you choose. The pattern is available at Amitie Textiles .
My pin cushion finished at 6″ diameter 3″ high. I will definitely be making some more – they are lots of fun
I am linking up this post with NTT @ My Quilt Infatuation, Whoop Whoop @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Finish It Up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts. Stop by these wonderful blogs to check out all the fabulous projects.
Have a wonderful weekend wherever you are in the world.
