my latest guilty pleasure: illustrated pincushions

Last time I was around, I mentioned we were not getting any snow,
well I stand corrected! We had some, all my flowers are dead
and I am ready for some warmer weather!

I have not been able to sew a lot lately,
first because of my ankle (which is much better now)
and second because I had some skin surgery which prevented me 
from doing anything my with right arm, total nightmare....

So I went for little tiny projects: cute pincushions!

linen, Liberty of London, lace, applique...
what's not to like?

The pattern for these pincushions are from Minki Kim from Sewing Illustration,
I previously made cute tea mats from her book:

I was able to get the patterns for free a while ago,
when they were first available.

The designs are small and a little bit tricky,
but if it is messed up, it is easy to start over,
after all it is only a 3 to 4 inches piece of linen!

And sewing these beats hands down thinking about skin cancer,
even the non deadly one!

Happy sewing!
