Pincushion Crazy

I was so inspired by Marcie's (Patchalot More) wool pincushions I finally hauled out my kit I bought this summer from my FAVORITE quilt shop JJ Stitches and made one of them! It's cute but looks kind of plain compared to Marcie's wonderful turkey and chicken. I LOVE her chicken so much! There are 3 others in the kit so now that I have them started I think I"ll keep working on them one by one!

Oh and one other thing - don't look at my stitches too closely. They are not by any means as perfect as Marcie's. How does she do it?

It's lovely Dawn and just perfect for a stitcher

Marcie said...

Don't make me laugh! I don't even try for perfection. I am going for the prim look! Yours look perfect. I thought they were my machine. Come on now-fess up! I love that whole kit! Too cute!

That is supposed to read, "I thought they were BY machine." Now you have me thinking of penny rugs -hmmm.

Adorable -- and as for the stitches, I honestly can't see a thing wrong, so I can't say anything about them. But, um, I'll promise not to anyway if you will be as kind when I show my latest hand sewing project :0).
