Pincushions over Pincushions!

Hi everyone!

Like I mentioned in my previous blog post, I was planning to make some of my Cupcake Finger-Pincushions for my Dawanda Shop. And I think I went a bit overboard when I started making them, as I went through my fabric scraps and then found tons of scraps that would look great as a pincushion, which had me ending up with 36 of them, lol! But now my Shop is fully stocked with finger-pincushions in all variations.









Anyone want a tutorial for these? They're really easy to make, if there are enough interest I might make a tutorial and stick it up onto the blog :)

I was actually planning to do a lot more sewing, but as usual when you've made plans, something else gets in the way and this time it was my boss, who broke her arm and is now off work for at least 4 weeks, although we are already planning that it will be more likely 6 to 8, which means I can also scrape my holidays for now as they were planned for the end of March, boohoo!

Guess I will just have to make due with the odd day off in between and try and get some sewing done as I have more plans for my Dawanda Shop :)

But that's life... and now the 3 of us have to manage on our own at work. We've done it before though, so we will do it again. Just a bit of a bummer, especially for my boss of course. She has her whole right arm in a cast since it was her ellbow that she broke.

Hope you're all having fun sewing!

A little update!

Hi everyone,

I hope you don't think that I have vanished from the surface of the earth, lol! Nope, I'm still here, just have been busy with work for the past couple weeks, so didn't really have much time for sewing, because I was too knackered or just couldn't be bothered to start anything anymore once I was home and then I've got a back problem at the moment, so sitting on my sewing chair for too long isn't the comfiest I could imagine.

Hopefully you'll forgive me for the lack of blog posts and pictures of sewing goodness, but from the looks of it I have the weekend off entirely and if you're lucky, I will bring a post with a few projects to you soon as I'm currently planning on stocking my Dawanda Shop up a bit with ring pincushions as well as toiletry bags, but we'll see. The latter is still a work in progress, although more in my head ;)

Currently the Secret Tote Bag Swap is running in its third round, so I'm managing that as well as the Fabric Scrap Swap, where we're just waiting for everyone to receive now. Once that round is closed, I am planning on immediately opening the next round for you eager scrappy swappers, so keep an eye on the Flickr groups. And for everyone who has missed signing up for round 3 of the Secret Tote Bag Swap, keep your eyes open for another round. There will be one coming soon after round 3 is entirely finished!

Now I'm gonna enjoy the sunshine that's peeking into my room and will try to get some sewing done, so talk to you all soon! Oh and Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!

xx Lia
