The hop starts on Wednesday 21st November (tomorrow) and clicking the link in my sidebar will take you to all of the details and links. I'm posting on Monday 26th November. I've had and am still having (yes, not finished it yet!) a lot of fun with this pattern…nearly there though.
I'm supposed to be stitching like a mad thing on my cottages at the moment but I did spare some time on Friday night to make a new pincushion – it turned out to be ginormous! I spotted the link on a blog and followed it. I thought it would be a nice quick make for a Friday evening – not taking away too much time from the pillow making and cottage stitching. Things were zipping along quite nicely until we had a surprise visit which although very nice took quite a chunk out of the evening. So the quick project extended itself into Saturday – it took me a long time to stuff this pincushion. I'm glad I persevered because it's turned out so pretty but goodness me there is a lot of stuffing inside it!
I love pincushions – I think I'll make it my aim to make more of them in 2013 – I have a few in mind but probably no time to make anymore this year – we'll see though :)
