My weekend FLEW right by but I did manage to create a couple little pincushions.  I'm going to have to kick my creating into high gear...two things a weekend aren't going to amount to much for the mid November craft show!

This pincushion is made from a piece of an old tablecloth. I love the pretty blue and all the french knots. The base is an old wooden spool with ribbons and lace trimming it ~ I might add a little button or two.

Here's another tart pan pincushion ~ my first one is here ~ it's filled with a piece of pink chenille from a sweet little baby jacket.  The little roses covered the snaps on the jacket. It reminds me of a cupcake!

I'll be making a few more "cupcakes" and also some little gift bags out of the sleeves from the pink jacket.  Hopefully I'll squeeze them in this week!
Have a great Monday!!
