my creative space... pincushion



 So I was looking around blogdom, and came across these gorgeous pincushions here, and after a few little linkys found a great pattern here, and of course, I had to make one of my own straight away!!


 Isn't it cute?  Very easy to make, I am picturing an explosion of different coloured pincushions, or I might turn them into dangley decorations, I do so love hanging bits and pieces!..........


Yes, there will definitely be more of theses appearing around here.



On another note, would you look at the size of this egg that one of my poor girls squeezed out today!  The other eggs are all pretty big too, so you can see the difference!  Wonder if it's a one off, or going to become the new standard, haha! It must be all the free ranging they do through the vegie patch, they do take all the choice pickings.

Playing along with the others at Our Creative Spaces today.
Have a great day!

PS Thank you so much for entering my little give away, and for all the lovely comments I have received about my cushion, you are all ace!! Think I might pop one of these little pin cushions in with it!
There is still heaps of time if you want to join in, just go here to check it out!

  5. Gorgeous pincushion. I might just have a go at making one of those.
    Ouch, the size of that egg. We had one that weighed 102g, it was massive. I wonder if it's a double yolker.

  16. I wonder if that chook had a couple of days worth of egg laying inside her when she popped out that big one? Your pincushion is fabulous!

  17. Yowsers, that's one hoooouuuuge egg. One of our girls laid an egg similar size some time ago and it wasn't a double yolker and she hasn't done it since, so it will be interesting to see if this is a one off. Make sure you let us know Jules..........

    Lovin' that pincushion, checked out the links and they look fab. Must get me some crochet cottony stuff and have a go.

    Have a great weekend,

  20. sweet little pin cushion!... the button is perfect! thanks for the link...
    i have made lucy´s bauble decorations (attic 24 blog) as pin cushions as well... this one reminds me a bit of my lil pumpkins that are also tucked and tied...
    i often get such huge eggs at my lil farm store across the street... yep, i agree and would say two yolks. after that one that chicken should have time off! *phew*
    in this part of the world we are heading towards fall... i bet you are happy to see spring starting there on the bottom half! i wish it were the same here. i missed much of our summer! if we are lucky we will have a warm, colorful fall and i will have a chance to get out and enjoy it! xoxo heidi

  22. Such a cute pin cushion! Found you through Attic 24. We used to keep hens and we'd call that egg a squawker!

  25. These are gorgeous! I am new to the world of the crochet but am loving it. I'm working on a granny square scarf at the moment. Bring on colder months when I'll be able to wear it.
