Needles and Pins

I seem to have a bit of a "thing" for pincushions and needlecases at the moment. I have a lovely collection happening.  Which is precisely what I have been working on of late, apart from a secret project or three.
This will be a lovely needlecase when finished. It is one of Deb's lovely patterns (Frog Cottage) and I have used some yummy fabrics I received from Sharon in a little one on one swap we had not so long ago. Everything cut and stitched, so won't take long to put together now.
This is the pincushion for this month's SAL with Chookyblue - yes in bits still, and the end of the month fast approaching, so I had best get a move on.
And when I have a few spare minutes, I've been sewing these large 6" hexagons - I've been collecting fabrics with sewing notions on them for years for no specific project - they were threatening to take over my sewing room, so this was what I finally decided to do with them. I have a big pile cut, and they are so portable, so great when you're sitting in the car (and don't have to drive of course).

I have a thing for buttons, so I'm in love with your button material there. Have fun with your pincushions, a girl needs lots of those.
Cheers, Anita.
