Sew & Tell - Just for fun

Ok, so this is not what I had planned to finish this week, but sometimes I get diverted from my main project and just want to have fun.

I got my copy of the new Stitch magazine last weekend and instantly fell in love with this:

I knew I had to make one for myself, and it could not wait. Of course, I don't have such beautiful passementerie as they have used, but a little search through my ribbon jar brought some great finds and I could assemble this little pincushion.



Don't forget to check out Amy's blog to find out this week's beautiful finished projects and to meet her sweet little Maggie.

Have a great weekend!

  4. Beautiful! In fact, it's so pretty, I'd hate to use it. Maybe you should just use it to decorate your sewing space. :-)
