stuff and things
despite having 6 million things to do and work on, i found myself digging through my fabric scraps for the perfect bit to make myself a new pincushion last night. see i bought new pins (an exciting purchase for a crafter) and my old, worn, 25¢ tomato pincushion from dressew in vancouver suddenly wasn't cutting it anymore. i still love and use my mountain pincushion from michelle but i like to have a couple in rotation as i tend to spread out my work. i used the whip up tutorial, although i use the term "used" quite loosely - i really just skimmed over the pictures and got to work which meant my pincushion didn't really come together as smoothly or nicely as i'd expected. it looks okay in the photo but it's pretty wonky in real life. it does the job and looks much cuter than my old tomato though and, really, that's all i wanted : )
in other fabric goodness, some delightful pieces i ordered from superbuzzy turned up this week! the creamy top one is a gorgeous double gauze and is intended for a summer top, should i ever actually get my overlocker out of the box and learn how to use it. only had it for about 6 months now...
and i jumped the gun on my own november goal of one soft toy each day and popped peony in the shop yesterday. she's joined by today's corduroy cutie, louee!
