Iron Pincushions and Sweet Gift


Goodness gracious, I did it again! So sorry for taking such a long blog break 
once again! I have a lot of my recent projects I want to share with you, but
 I will wait for a few weeks to do some lengthy blogposts.  I am in the midst of 
wrapping up my pet project and gearing up for a new venture!
I'll tell you all about it along the way, hehe!


Many of you are so kind to say you aren't tired of seeing my pincushions!
 thank you so much for that! It means a lot to me because I am still very much
addicted to it and will not be able to resist showing you as I make them!
Thank you so much to all of you for snatching up my pincushions 
and fabrics from my shop! I can't begin to tell you how exciting it is for me to
share my pincushions with folks who would appreciate them!
These two pincushions are my most recent
pincushions that are available in my shop ;)

Today I want to show you this pretty pincushion that traveled
all the way across the ocean from Norway!
Isn't it soooo sweet??!! Marit surprised me with a little package with
this cutie inside! I'm loving it so much!!

She was so sweet to use the stamp I carved for her on the back of
this little pillow! I feel so lucky to have a kind friend like her!
Thank you so much, Marit!!

I hope you are having a great week so far ;)
Thank you for stopping by my little blog!

    I adore your pincushions. They each have a story to tell of their own and it is so sweet! Marit's pincushion for you is beautiful!
    Your hand-carved stamps are very very cute and add an extra special touch to your makings! I also got to admire your cherry-blossom pictures. They are awesome! Thank you for sharing a little bit of your spring :)

  26. I say again and again,you're great to create such many lovely kind staff,
    respect your ability!!

  27. Nicke and I were just talking about your lovely pincushions. Nope, not tired of them! Your new ones are so fun! And the pincushion you received from Marit is lovely, too! That stamp is fabulous!

  28. Adorable as ever. That lovely iron stamp is just gorgeous. It reminds me of the ancient communal iron we all shared when I was at college. It always completely failed to get the creases out!

  29. It's always a treat to see your posts pop up in my reader. Happy sewing!

  30. These pillows are so cute! :D Great work! You are very creative!

  31. Just stumbled onto your site. LOVE!!! I'm a slightly-better-than-beginner sewer and would love to try a pincushion and work my way up to all your other great patterns. The free pattern doesn't come up when I click on the pincushion picture. Can you help? Thanks! mariamaberto1@gmail.com

  32. how could anyone ever get tired of looking at your adorable pincushions? i'm always inspired by them. your iron stamp is pure genius. do you use erasers to carve them? i'd love to see a picture of the stamp itself if you ever get the chance :)

  33. so cute ayumi. the skin fabric is perfect. And the fishies in the background, love them. she's going to love it.


Thanks for taking the moment to leave a comment ;) I always love hearing from you!
