One for you... two for me

I have been eyeing off this gorgeous Bloom Journal Cover tutorial for a while now and yesterday I had some time to fling one (or two) together. My first attempt (not shown) was a dismal failure so I think next time I try to get fancy and convert inches to centimeters I really should write the measurements down... duh. But this one fits my craft notebook well.

And today saw time to make a pin cushion. Yes Iv'e signed up to Fox's Lane pincushion swap!!
... seeing as Iv'e never made one before I thought it be best to practice first so as to be kind to my swap partner.
I think it's sweet and it was quickly swept away by my 3 year old pretending to have cups of tea. Will somehow steal it back when he's not looking.
It was also my first attempt at Amigurumi, so look out kids, mumma's going to making a few more cute little crochet creations.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend x


  1. That teacup pincushion is adorable, I love it! I firmly believe that "A cup of tea solves everything" :)
