Something Cheerful

I had almost given up on stuff I had ordered from the Sandi Henderson website, but it arrived on Monday.

Her fabrics always remind me of spring and summer and hope and lightness and happiness, so I ordered some scraps, ribbons and a pincushion kit, and luckily there was a free pincushion pattern included.

That was all I needed to lift the sewing block, and so I made it.

My 3 year old fell in love with it and calls it her "cupcake pillow". She wants to take it to bed with her and for me to make some for her cousins and a green one for her brother. I can't blame her, it's such a cheerful little thing.

I can't stop looking at it either.

So then, I made a green one, and my second youngest (a boy 4) loves it too - The pincushions may never see a pin again....

Take a Bow!

Pin It Now!

  2. Thanks Sara for your kind words. It can be such a struggle and doesn't feel like courage at all:) I'm finding if I can notice my feelings and let the thoughts go - it helps. I hope you find something that works for you.
