A Tale of Two Pincushions


finished bluebird, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

Today I finished the second of the "Sea Dreams" pincushions! I loved the first one with all it's shells and beach theme, but I have totally fallen in love with the bluebird on this second one!

I am overwhelmed by the response these two pincushions have received this week! Thank you to all of you who have taken the time to comment and to those of you who have posted links to my blog and the tutorial! Here is a quick list and links to the ones I am aware of!

It was also mentioned on the front page of the Crazy Quilting International monthly newsletter!

Front Cover
I've been busy doing more stitching on my Hussif as well. The front motif is now finished!
front laid out
Today, I spent some time laying out the outside cover and working on details of it.
little bunny pincushion
The cover will fold in and the first "inside" page includes a little pincushion created of some lovely mossy velvet that doesn't seem to photograph very well Originally, I thought to use a pearly button in the center, but the round shape didn't quite go. Then I remembered these Navaho bone bunny beads and knew I'd found the perfect thing! I'm looking for some lace to edge the pincushion before I sew it down to the cover.
