A few weeks ago we had a sewing day at Marina's house and got to look at her sewing room...on the wall was a collection of pin cushions......if you go here and flick through the photos you can why I have pin cushion envy!! Lol!!
I have been pruning the fruit trees today, so am tired and sore.....planning on a soak in the bath with a good book very soon! Just have to get the washing in and fold up yesterdays that is hanging about the house...I remembered it at 9pm!! Woops!!
Happy sewing!

Who doesn't have pincushion envy! Lol. That one is lovely. A bit of a coincidence because I just sorted out all the bits and pieces you sent to me to make your pincushion tomorrow. Doing the happy dance.
