There were several comments on the pincushion I showed on Sunday. My starting point was the Tiny World Make Do Pincushion pattern by Mimi Kirchner. I've adapted the instructions to suit my methods and the materials I had on hand. I also created some of my own design elements. The instructions in the pattern are well written and very easy to follow and I've had so much fun making Tiny World Pincushions. The pattern is available here. Yesterday's pincushion is part of a series of four. I found four demitasses at the local thrift shop and made four identical scenes however they changed with the seasons.
I've finished two more blocks in the Gardens of a King quilt pattern that I am testing for Missie. This is another one that I thought would be tricky but I spent some time thinking about the block construction and it paid off. The blocks came together very nicely!
Today I'm going to spend some time with a friend learning how to make coil baskets! I saw a couple that she made and they were beautiful so I'll be sure to take pictures and share the results of our labours!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
