A New Pillow Begins

 My oversize pillows have found different homes in the last few months
and I miss having one in the living room so I started afresh.
Putting my favorite fabrics together creates fun for me that truly feels joyous.

The brown and pink cupcake pincushion was a Giveaway win from Beedeebabee, Paulette,
who is on hiatus at this moment in Autumn 2015.
It's a fun piece and brings great memories every time I push
a big-headed pin into its creamy depths. I love cupcakes.

Just behind the cupcake is a red and blue heart on a white background pincushion given to me by my sister-from-another-mother Erica from Holland, Piper's Oma. It's counted cross stitch to which I added a leather base for hand protection. I love its colors and the affiliation with this beloved woman and her family.

I've used two layers of polyester batting
and backed it with a great antique ecru linen.

Not sure where we go from here but I've never let "not having a plan" stop me.

Linking up with Richard and Tanya's LAFF.


  1. What is this "plan" of which you speak? Ha ha. Just grabbing fabric and sewing it together is very freeing.

  2. Looks beautiful from here. I love it. You go mama.

  3. It will be fun to see where you go with this! I am glad to have found your blog, you have a lot of great project s - and a great sense of humor!!

  4. Love this project! So colourful. I'm getting quite a collection of left over fabric now that I am sewing all these different clothes for myself and my daughter so I could do something like this! Great idea.
