Want to look closer at the "cakes"?
So this is how I spent the latter hours of yesterday and this morning. Nothing edible, I'm afraid (although you wouldn't really have been able to eat them anyway, so I hope you'll forgive me!) but oodles of yummy square pincushions. What a joy, choosing all those gorgeous combinations of fabrics, then ribbons and to top them off, some pretty buttons. I mustn't forget to thank Mr HenHouse for his help with the "tufting", you really need a good strong man to pull ribbon on the end of a big long needle through layers of fabric and stuffing. Thanks, big boy!
Once I'd decided to raid the Carlton Ware cabinet, I went a bit bonkers. I love all these Spring-like colours. It's even quite bright and Spring-like here, today.
More cheese, Gromit!
I don't know what it is about making things en masse, but they look so much better, all in a little collective huddle. That said, I'll probably not want to face another square pin cushion for quite some time! I should have recovered by the time of the Vintage and Handmade Fair...
Now who ate that last one?
