Last week was crazy busy. I was feeling a little stressed out so I distracted myself with a small project Friday night. Starting (and finishing) this cute little pincushion was just what I needed.
Kim of My Go-Go Life wrote a great tutorial on how to make a cathedral window pincushion. I've never sewn this block before and this was a fun way to try it on a small scale. I have a crush on Kim's version. She used Good Folks by Anna Maria Horner and it's gorgeous!
I stuffed mine with crushed walnut shells, aka, lizard litter. It helps keep your needles sharp and adds a nice weight to your pincushion. If you have never used lizard litter before, you can read some of my tips here, "Another Use For Lizard Litter".
This is going to the home of my Pillow Talk Swap partner. I used a combination of prints from Heirloom by Joel Dewberry and Pure Elements in Cabernet. The button was from my button jar and I thought it was just perfect.
