From mess to pleasure......


Oh dear......
the plumbing is stuffed, will it ever be back to normal.....


Soon I hope.....


We .... the Tuesday girls ventured out to see the "World of Craft"show.....
we had a great day even though the show wasn't quite as good as we had expected but it is new so hopefully it will improve as time goes on.

PPPP


I have joined "The Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade" for the first time.....
Thanks to  Ida and Sis for this fun Parade.....

This pincushion was a kit that I had put off making for a longggg time, I'm so pleased with it and can't really understand why I didn't make it earlier....

It was a fiddly little devil..... lol


I do love this cute little pincushion..... 
bought this one from a craft shop, just couldn't leave without it.....


These are among my favourites.....
what did I just say ?????
they are all my favourites......lol.....


From the tiny cup and saucer pin cushion to this one.....

it is very big ... 
what is a pin cushion without the metal stand......



I do love working with wool so this one was fun to make.....
I bought the kit at The Home Patch shop in Bathurst on a recent trip there....


Big ones......


smaller ones.....


Old Worlde' ones.....


Gifts, swaps, gifts from me to me and bought ones.....
and more on my "to do list".....
Oh dear .... I do think I have a problem.....
There is nothing more tempting than a pretty pincushion.....

if you would like to join in or just check out all the beautiful pincushions then go here.......

I did try to find an ugly pincushion but alas I couldn't see one anywhere in my collection.....
This has been such fun.....

Toodles.....
