'My Little Hummingbird Garden' Pincushion ..

Hello my dear friends,

of course I couldn't help directing my attention to the little pewter hummingbird candle holder which I shared with you a little while ago and turn it into something I just love creating. 

Some gray velvet and a little gray seam binding, a few vintage velvet violets (now try saying that three times ..) and a little sparkle were all that was needed to complete my newest creation.

And here it is ...

... 'My Little Hummingbird Garden' pincushion.


I hope you have enjoyed my newest pincushion.

I enjoyed creating this pincushion so much, I think it is because I had searched for this pewter piece for some time and I always knew if I would find it, it would become a pincushion and in my eyes it is just beautiful.

You will be able to find this neat new pincushion now for sale in my Etsy shop if you lovely bloggers might be interested in it.

(It is now sold ~ thank you)

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me here at Todolwen ~ it is always so nice when you do.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
