I was busy finishing a surprise this weekend, so decided to finally get around to finishing some Fair Squares which the lovely Marg sent me way back in February. I’m trying to finish at least one thing out of my finishing drawer each month in an effort not to have all these beautiful squares languishing there forever! I decided to finish these lovely ‘Think Spring’ squares as a pincushion, in honour of Marg’s extremely large (100+!) collection of pincushions, and I also intended to practice my tassel-making, which isn’t brilliant, for each of the corners of the pincushion so I sat down with (what eventually transpired to be) a too-large piece of cardboard, not enough floss, little patience and sticky fingers (from the heat). So, as you can see, my pincushion ended up rather plain – but still gorgeous as even my ham-fisted attempts couldn’t ruin the lovely squares from Marg!
I saw from Hazel’s blog that she is sending me a PIF which I signed up for on her blog – now I’ll be hounding the postie as I’m very excited about this!
