Pin It Blog Hop



I've been waiting and waiting for this day...trying to be patient.  First of all I want to thank Madame Samm for giving me the chance to be a cheerleader.  It has been so much fun already, and we haven't even started the hop yet.  We have over 100 participants and some wonderful prizes to be won (see below).



I started out with three pin cushions.  They are all made of different mediums, wool, felt, and fabric, all with their own embellishments.




A little embroidery bird with some of my favorite fabric added (design by Gail Pan).


A tiny bee from Just Another Button company who has fun buttons and pins to embellish him.



And then a colorful pin keep from Rosebud's Cottage made with wool.  The wonderful thing about this one, beside it being so colorful, is that it sits flat on the arm of my sofa...the perfect place for a pincushion (just ask my husband and son who have sat on needles more than once)!



There are wonderful prizes to be won and great websites to visit! 

September 10
Meadowbrook (You are here)

Enjoy the hop and stop by each day to see who is up next.  I'm planning on having a new pincushion each day of the hop to show.  Happy Stitching and Hopping!!

Sue said...

Great start of this fun hop! Love all three of your pincushions!

Suze said...

All your pin cushions are just delightful. I just lost two needles today. I'm at my daughters house to sit her two-year old son during the day (other grandpa usually sits and had knee replacement). I just brought my tube of needles and my little tiny plastic box of pins for piecing my hexies. I can't find the needles either. So, when I get home I'm going to have to make some pin cushions. Thanks for cheering everyone on to a great hop. I'm wanting to make some pin cushions for our boutique at our guild's quilt show next June. So I'm open to ideas.
I cannot pick a favorite of your pin cushions! They are all so adorable. Don't you love Gail Pan? I even grabbed a few free patterns of hers - I don't know if they are still available or not. I am always inspired by your creations. Thanks for getting the hop of to a wonderful start!

I don't know where the week went and here I am just now starting the hopping. I guess it is good that the weekend is off days as I can't be the only one lagging.

I love all three of these, Kristen. Each so different too. The wool one may be my favorite as it looks good enough to eat. The colors, I mean! This is going to be fun hop I can just tell!
