Pincushion and parcel

I came across these lovely flower pincushions on one of my blog-trawls last week.  I just love Little Woollie's blog - she makes some really lovely things, so when I saw these I decided I just had to make one for myself.  I really like how it's turned out and it was lovely and quick and easy to make - I'm certain I'll be making more of them in the future - I think they'd make really great presents too.  I used some white Rowan handknit cotton from my stash and a vintage button from the crafting treasures that my gran gave me recently.
On a completely other note: look what came in the post today:
Such a beautifully-wrapped parcel from Jane at Teawagon Tales.  This contains a gorgeous applique made by Jane - when I saw it on her lovely blog, I just knew that it had to come and live in my newly-decorated sitting room!  I haven't had a chance to photograph the contents properly yet as I haven't quite decided where it's going to 'live', but I am completely in love with it and can't wait to show you!
So that's it from me, really.  Hope you've all had a good Monday - I've been running around like a mad thing working/looking after poorly children/being a taxi - just the usual mummy stuff! x

  3. The things that Jane makes are amazing, I am completely rubbish on the machine and generally I go slightly faster than I can manage and then I start to giggle (nervous reaction) and then it all unravels from there. I like your pin cushion it is lovely I have a very clever crocheting friend who made me cupcake pincushion and I use it all the time, such a great gift.

  4. LOVE LOVE LOVE your little daisy pincushion x
