Hello Dear Reader,
I'm pleased to be able to join Jo's "Gifted Gorgeousness" today, to show you the gift I sent to my swap partner in Bea's Pincushion Swap.
Some time ago I had seen this lovely doggie pincushion, but I never thought I would actually make one because I wouldn't want to stick pins into him!
When I found that the lady I was sending to was a dog lover, I felt "this was meant to be"!! (Links at end of post)
Truth told, I think I sent a teeny bit of my heart with this little guy, 'cos by the time I finished making him he was hard to send away in the post!!! So I guess that makes him "made with love".....
And then, so he won't have to have pins stuck in him I had to make another pincushion to go with him! But then I felt he had to have a rug to sleep on (just as every stitcher needs a needle case .... or two).
Luckily, around this time, my blogging friend - Turid - wrote a tutorial for a needle case which I felt could double as a rug for my little pincushion!
Thank you Turid, for your timely tutorial! (link at foot of post)
and I just know I will be making more of these!
Oops, nearly forgot! I took this next shot to show some of the stitches on my new sewing machine, but maybe I should have taken more of a close up! Tee hee!
|And one last piccy of him with his rug and bone .......|
I do hope Debra, will like him! I certainly enjoyed making him!
Now, I'm off to visit everyone over at Jo's place!
And while writing I'd like to thank Jo for running this lovely party each month! "Thank you Jo!"
