Charming Little Pincushions...♥

Hello dear readers...
I hope you have had a most beautiful and creative week thus far?
I have been sewing and sewing whilst listening to Celtic Woman's new album, Voices of Angels... 

Each Christmas our family draws a name and either buys or makes one gift for that person.
This can be quite difficult for the younger girls, so we give them a hand here and there...{{smiles}}
Last Christmas Miss Rebekah picked Mom's name and so I helped her go about creating something special for Mom.

 
  
"Any day spent sewing, is a good day."  ~Author Unknown

Mom loves sewing and has taught many of us the art of needlework already...
We noticed that she didn't have a pretty pincushion and that her pins were bent and quite blunt.
Thus, Rebekah and I decided to sew her a little pin cushion that was both pretty and practical!



"Sewing fills my days, not to mention the living room, bedroom, and closets."  ~Author Unknown

I spent ever so much time perusing Pinterest, eager to find just the right idea...
In the end I came up with something of my own which looks altogether elegant with lace, ribbon and charming floral fabric. ♥


Mom was so delighted with her pincushion that I thought I should make a few more...
One for myself and a couple others for gifts and my little Etsy shoppe.
It is always wonderful creating something sweet and out of the ordinary, don't you think?


Visit my Etsy shoppe to see the pin cushions now available for purchase...and I am offering FREE SHIPPING worldwide for a short period only!

Do come by later this week for a delightful little surprise!  {{smiles}}
I would also like to welcome my lovely new readers...it always makes my day to meet a new friend and I hope each lovely visitor will leave feeling warm and blessed!

With love and joy,
Kelly-Anne

Your pin cushion creations are perfect with the ribbons across them, I love that idea! Such a great idea to teach your sister how to make one, and that your mother passed her sewing skills on to her children! What a blessing! I taught both my children to hand sew and machine sew, and did a bit of hand stitching with them too. It is a worthy skill to pass on!

Always a joy to visit with you my dear friend! Have been missing you, glad to have this bit of time with you today :)

These are simply adorable, my friend! I absolutely adore the fabrics you chose and the lace and ribbons add such a sweet, feminine touch. I love this idea and have tucked it away for a day when I am wanting to do a bit of sewing for an afternoon project...thank you for sharing this little bit of loveliness with us today ♥ It's always a delight to stop by your blog!!

Sending much love!

You know, I actually pop by and read most of your posts... I just usually can't think of anything to comment.

How could I resist free shipping AND that beautiful pincushion???
