Father's Day

First off I want to wish all father's out there a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! My father passed away too many years ago but I do think about him on this and every day. My children's father is a very busy man on his supposed day of rest :) Grocery shopping, lawn mowing, and now he's outside cleaning the pool so he can float for an hour or two, if the sun stays out.

I've been doing laundry, house cleaning and most recently, sewing....


Anyone that knows me KNOWS how obsessed I am with pincushions...primarily homemade ones. I don't care if they're simple squares or very detailed, I love them all.


This past May when I was at retreat I received a kit from Robin for a very CUTE carrot pincushion using wool, wool roving to stuff it and some super cute buttons and pins for decoration. I decided to pull it out and make it up today.....

You can see from the picture that it's not a big pincushion, probably about 5-1/2 inches long but is this not the cutest thing you've ever seen?

I just love it....and the nice thing about it is it took maybe 2 hours from start to finish.....
