It's been a Pincushion kind of week! I have made a a total of eleven pincushions this week, and ironically have been treated like a pincushion myself this week with tests, appointments, procedures and infusions. Really, I would rather be sewing ...
These Log Cabin Liberty Tana Lawn Pincushions measure just 6 inches x 6 inches and are from the book Liberty Love: 25 Projects to Quilt & Sew Featuring Liberty of London Fabrics by Alexia Marcelle Abegg. (see my book review here).
Feeling inspired to keep going with the pincushion theme I made another six simple patchwork pincushions, again using Liberty Tana Lawn - cutting and sewing 200+ individual 1.5 inch squares. A batch of pincushions is easy and fun to whip up and they make a great gift for quilting/sewing friends (and with only 66 days till Christmas now is a good time to get started).
All of the pincushions offered for sale have already been sold. I know, that's good news for me, but disappointing if you were looking to purchase. I hope to make a few more pincushions by the end of November and they will then be listed in my Etsy Store.
Well, I am grateful to be back on my feet and look forward to being more (sewing) productive next week.
Thank you for stopping by,
