special K’s …

by Nova on January 15, 2012

… &  special A too!

Late last year I had a bit of much appreciated help from some of my bloggy & non bloggy friends.

I wanted to make them all a small token of my thanks with little personalised pincushions (a stitchy girl can never have too many pincushions right?!)

Funny how things turn out & almost everyone had the initial K! I tried to pick fabrics & colours that would appeal to each of them & hopefully I got it right!

initial pincushions

HUGE thanks again to Amber, Kellie, Kelly, Kirsten, Kerry & mum  for ALL your help with my pattern & to Kate for sharing some shirty goodness  & for giving  me gentle nudges to get on with releasing said pattern ;)  x All bar one have arrived now (the heart is for you mum! sorry for the spoiler ;)  xxx)

You have motivated me to look through the pile of fabric I have. Those personalised little pincushions are so cute.

They look so cute like that, I hugely appreciate that you made one for me- I have a little rack in front of my machine with pincushions from friends, that is where the K lives- I like to see them as I sew, always make me smile!

Such cute gifts. Love the initial idea. Funny how there were so many k’s

Love your special K’s -especially as I am a Kathy. K is a very tricky letter to find when browsing ‘letter’ products, so I usually snap them up when I see one :). ……..I think I can feel a blog post coming on …….

Kellie January 17, 2012 at 5:14 pm

I love mine so much I can’t bear to put pins in the “K”! Thank you Nova. I get to think of you whenever I’m doing my favourite things… playing with fabric, thinking of fabric, refolding fabric (you get the picture) x
