I love that! I really need to get going on some crafts. I did the snow cones for Christmas and they turned out very nice but not as good as yours :)

Come check out my new recipe blog and join in on the fun :)Look forward to you becoming a Swapper!

The pincushion exhibit is an especially fun one to see. So many creative ideas there.

My eldest has a "thing" for hedgehogs - guess what I am going to be making next weekend.


This is the cutest thing I have ever seen! And I am not kidding. I have never seen a pincushion so ADORABLE!!!! Thank you for sharing!


She is so cute! :)


Ooh Prickles is soo cute, she can come and live with me anytime, and I promise I wouldn't borrow any of those prickles.


I've been wanting to make my own pincushion for quite some time now, and now I have the overwhelming urge to make one named, "Prickles"! I can't wait!

Love your blog. Love Prickles and am making one right away. She is just so cute.
The pattern says to oversew the pieces. Is that the same as overcast?

Thanks from a lurker.

So cute I was inspired by yours and made my own.. Thank you, I enjoy your blog.


She is just too cute. Thanks for sharing the link. I can't wait to make one. Prickles flower is definately one of her best features!


Thank you for the link to the hedge hog pincushion. I have been wanting to make one forever - well for a while at least. I just didn't want to sit and fuss and figure it out myself.

Hopefully there will be hedgehog time tonight!


Please tell me that you'll be offering these at Scrap.Happy.com. They're just adorable.


boy do I LOVE that little pin cushion - and your gorgeous blog - I am part of this V-day blitzeroo - I'm extending my deadline - IF YOU HURRY over chez moi and leave a comment - if you are interested - I'll put your name in the draw - xox - eb.


Oh, I was just today thinking about a similar pattern in a book of mine dating from the 70's or maybe even the 60's, and wondering if I had any fabric on hand that would be appropriate for it. Only, the hedgehog pincushion in that book was made with a tweedy, brown woolen fabric, like you'd find a men's coat made from. This pattern is much cuter, though. I may have to try a tweedy version of it.
Love how yours turned out.


Oh, she is soooo PRECIOUS! Just like everything on this bloggedy blog. Love it!


Darling Viki! Thanks so much for the link!


I like your blog, the colours and creations, it is precious ! And your new little friend is ADORABLE !

Merci mon amie ! Thank you soooo much for the link.
