Pin Cushion Blog Hop!


It’s Pin cushion time!!
Thanks to Mdm Samm and Kristen for organizing this….
When I saw the sign ups for this I jumped right on it
because this has been a problem at our kitchen table:
Yep! I've been leaving my pins and needles laying around.(No worries, we have no children in the house)But, never the less, I do test my dear husband's patience. So I knew it was time to make a pin cushion for our kitchen table. This is where I do a lot of my hand sewing. We catch up at the days end over a glass of wine, me sewing, he making dinner. (Yes, my husband is the cook of the family...lucky me I know...I haven't boiled a pot of water for over 25 years! Heaven help anyone if I had to now! ) So here is my pin cushion.  I love hexagons and I made it to match our kitchen curtains!!! .

 Cheers to a great blog hop! 

Stop by and check out the creations of so many others 
participating in this blog hop.
With Smiles,
Val:)

  5. You haven't boiled a pot of water in over 25 years!!! Wow. Lucky you. Some people love to cook (my sister is one of them), but cooking is #2 on my jobs-I-don't-want-to-do list. One day, when I'm super rich, I'm going to hire a cleaner, then, when I am super dooper rich I will hire a cook.

    I like how you chose your pin cushion colours to match your curtains. That was a nice idea.

  9. What a sweet little pincushion. I love that you used hexies! Word of warning.... You will find that you now have the need for MORE pincushions....This is normal. However, you will also find that you will still find pins all over the house.....Weird, but true!

  32. First off, I can't tell you just how jealous I am of your hubby doing the cooking! Mine only can find the kitchen when his stomach is rumbling! LOL

    I just love your bright and cheery pin cushion and yes it beats the placemats and possibly chair arm covers too! (speaking for myself that is) :-)

  35. A husband that is the cook is a gem; don't loose him!! Matching the pincushion to the kitchen was perfect and hexies a great choice.

  37. It is quite lovely. ;) Love hexies!!

  38. WTG Val! That it matches the decor is just a plus, right? My husband is NOT a cook but he is a good stirrer if I need him to come in and help. Mostly he is just call him when it is done and drag out whatever we need to set the table if I have not done it.
