My Creative Space…

by Kate on August 26, 2010

I’m experimenting with all things woven and while I don’t think this pincushion is a complete failure, there is still a way to go.

I better get back to the loom and the drawing board.

Head over to Kirsty’s to check out this weeks creative spaces and while your there make sure you take a look at the prettiest pins around.

I think it's divine! It doesn't need a thing in my eyes – so simple and perfect and practical too… I mean, if you're meant to stick pins in it and actually use it, you don't want it to be cluttered with too much ;) Great space. K

It's not a failure! What's wrong with it? And pin cushions don't have to be perfect anyway!

Say it with me…."I'm waaaaaaay to modest". My goodness, that pincushion is beautiful and I'm just trying to work out how you did it in terms of sewing the base to the woolen top. I don't sew (yet) so my sewing language and basic understanding of it is…well…basic!

I have decided that you are Resilience with a capital R. Nothing stops you. Given half a chance (ongoing tingly finger?) your entire house will be snuggled in woven-ness.

Nice pins.

I reckon that would look super cute with a little wooly embroidery added (is that crewel) though I can't leave any surface un-embroidered at the moment.
I love your 9 finger crafting
