We are starting to get to know each other now, you have seen my bare feet and listened to my
We start with the "how are you"?s, we talk about the weather, very dry and no rain to speak of for weeks now! Other parts of Australia in dire flood crisis.
Then you politely say, "thats a nice pin cushion"...as someone posted in my comments lately...( I love comments so thank you for the lovely bloggers who leave them)
Uh Oh, because that is all the encouragement I need to reply,
"Sit there, I will make you a cuppa" and I race off to bring you all my pin cushions to show.....( think large enthusiastic puppy)
Made this at a craft show workshop....very cute.
Made this for number one daughter, and she now sews so its in good hands.
Bought this a while back, designed by Elanor Peace Bailey, note the thimble necklace and safety pin earrings. Very quirky, but she has lost the feathers from her hat...must replace them.
This is a reminder of my childhood, a friends mother had a pin cushion like this and I must have spent hours playing with the pony tails and loving the colours and the way they hug the pin cushion....I know very strange child!! But lovely memories of a lovely family.
I made this from a kit by Gail Wilson, she stands quite tall...and no pins in her either. Love this one.
Another Ebay purchase, I hope none of you find this offensive, I think she is beautiful and I love her expressions, sometimes she looks exasperated and sometimes wistful. I have given her a comfy shelf.
Started this in a class and its designed by Helen ?????? I have so forgotten her name... she is famous for her thread painting....aaargggh dont you hate that?
It will come to me and I will rectify that gap in my knowledge.
Have you dozed off yet?
Here is a little scrap pin cushion I made after seeing similar on the internet at Life under Quilts
This is its polite side.
......and this is its prickly side!
Well I laughed.
Just as you were looking for the nearest escape route from my home, the kids arrived and as per usual were asking,
"Whats to eat around here?"
So my daughter (she is the one in polka dots) has very kindly whipped you up a Victoria sponge.
I hope you enjoyed you tea and cake, visit again soon.....
