Pin It Day 5 and Little Fall Fun

After our short break over the weekend I'm ready to start hopping again!  I made this bird pincushion earlier this year (which is what got me started on making pin cushions), and spent some time this weekend making the candy corn.  It is made of wool and I actually purchased some crushed walnuts for this one so it has some weight to it.


I'm not a big fan of the reptile isle at the pet store (which is where you find the crushed walnuts), and it actually took me two days to open the bag, but I am loving the finished product.


All the candy corn and pumpkins got me in the fall decorating mood...and sewing mood which is just perfect as there is a chill in the air.


It is day 4 of our Pin It Hop.  The creativity is just exciting and a big heartfelt thanks goes to Madame Samm for orchestrating this and PBTEX and Bird Brain Designs for the prizes.

ok I am a little confused...why were you in the reptile aisle at the pet store? Is that where you got the walnut shells? Thanks for posting a new pinnie everyday during the hop. You are really inspiring!

Kristen, what exactly is on the bag of the shells you bought at the pet store? The brand and description of the contents would be helpful.

Should have saved your cute little bird and candy corn for the Wicked blog hop. ; )
