A finish

The pincushion is done...I stuffed it as firmly as I could as per the instructions, but think the hexies have lost their puffiness, think I like the back better than the front now!! Lol!!
front...should have put the wonky bit around the back for photo taking!! Lol!!

back...
When I was down the street today I spied an unusual bicycle so went to have a look....
Have no idea what active by the sea is, but was impressed with the bike...isn't that clever??

I think this is the wreck of the steam paddle ship at Indented Head...

and the kiosk (below) at St Leonards...complete with resident pelican...very clever I thought!

Kiosk at the end of the pier, only open in the summer...

quite a nice day at the moment although there was a southerly blowing so was a hard ride home!!

some more secret sewing happening....have to try and get machine sewing done today or tomorrow as tradies are coming inMonday or Tuesday to start the flooring and we have to leave for two days! Everything has to be packed away and the lounge room furniture moved into the bedroom.....groan...but once that is done we are FINISHED!!!! Yay!!!!
Ok following Antheas very clear instructions I am off to get dinner and then sew!!
Happy sewing!!

very pretty pincushion, the yarn bombed bike is great, are you going to make some wheel covers for your bike too?

Love the pincushion. Always hard to know how much stuffing to put in isn't it.
