My creative space.... another pincushion..



Hello!
Soooo..... I finished my little mini granny squares make.  The pattern for the squares is from the lovely The Royal Sisters blog, (I'm sure you all know it already), and I just made up a simple 9 mini square square, if you know what I mean!

Once again, a pretty frivolous thing that the world can do without, but I quite like my little puffy granny pincushion.


Made just like a cushion........


.....but fits in the palm of your hand!

I seem to have a bit of a thing for pincushions.....little and taking just the right amount of time to make to maintain my interest, what's not to love?  
And I can almost convince myself it is a practical thing to make, useful even. Hahaha....
I do love these bright colours........
I think this would be nice in lots of different colour palettes, maybe all different shades of red/pink, or aquas and reds with a white border?  hmmmm so many choices....

Anyway, have a great day! 

Might join in  with the others at our creative space today if I remember to link up!

  8. Love the pin cushion, and isn't it fun to make something just because you can, not because you need to.

  14. Hey Jules, it's goooooogeous, soooo sweet.........

    Lovely bright colours, reminds me of a waffle or crumpet or something yummy.
    It's breakfast time, food is on my mind......

    The rest of the world may not need it, but the crafty world definitely needs it. Bright, colorful and it makes you happy, what's not to need.

    Pouring up here, thinking of dusting off the dinghy.......

  24. Hi Jules.

    The world needs more frivolous things like crocheted pin cushions. Definitely.

    In fact, I do believe that you were the one that inspired my own pincushion, the flowery one, when I saw it on your blog.

    cheers
