Pincushions For Pat ~ No. Three Is Now Done ...

Hello my dear friends,

pincushion no. 3 is now finished for the lovely Pat.

I so enjoyed working with the little tea strainer last time that I just had to chose the other one as my next project. It too is now done and that is what I am sharing with all of you today.

I made it a hanging pincushion just like first one, it was just the perfect for this tarnished tea utensil again. As the pincushion itself I used a felted piece from lambswool sweater. I embellished it then with a lovely little piece from a old crochet doily. It is so nice the way they both compliment each other even though they are so different from each other. One is chunky and thick and the other fine and delicate. Crinkled seam binding tied into a bow was as so often was a must for this pincushion and also a vintage piece of sparkle which gave this creation it's final touch. This little pincushion can be hang off the seam binding that is attached to it's handle.

I named it simply ...

... 'Tea Time'.

And this is pincushion no. 3 ...

And that was my latest pincushion creation. 

I think it turned out very sweet and neat and I hope you have enjoyed it. Hopefully I will be able to finish the last two over the weekend if things work out OK.

 I am busy having a garage sale tomorrow morning and I still have a lot to do before that. Items to price and maybe go through everything in the house that one last time before 8 am tomorrow morning. Please, keep your fingers crossed it will go well and the weather will be good to us.

It is so nice that you took the time to visit me here today at Todolwen and maybe you will pop by soon again.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
