Cupcake Pincushions

Now these are not finished because I still need to put the cherries (felted balls) on top but I was too excited to share to wait for those to arrive! I ordered the felt balls yesterday and I hope they won't take long to get here. I need to find some more fancy trims too. I have lots of wool now to keep me busy for awhile but I can always use some more fun colors if you run by any sweaters you need to get rid of--wool or otherwise. I scored at a rummage on Saturday and got these 4 wool sweaters for $4. I plan to felt them for more projects I am making from the Warm Fuzzies book.
I held Craft Night at my house on Friday night. Just one person came. On a positive note, I got to know this person a lot better and enjoyed our conversation. My craft room is also very clean and we have a lot of yummy double chocolate cookies I made for all the girls I thought would come. Also, I finished sewing the binding on my quilt so it is DONE! On the down side, dang, it was a lot of work to prepare for everyone and I was so excited to spend time with the girls to do crafting and socialize so when only one person came I was pretty bummed. I am going to plan another night and give it another try. If I get a similar turnout, I may have to give up on the Craft Nights but I hope it doesn't come to that because Craft Nights would be so much fun.


  1. Your pincushions are so cute. They look good enough to eat. Sorry about your craft night. Hopefully I can make it to your next one. It's hard to plan anything though when I am working a rotating shift.

  2. If I lived closer I would come to your craft night! I think I would love it. You do the coolest things.


  3. Thanks for having craft night! I enjoyed it a lot. It was great getting to know you better! Let's do it again soon.

  4. I STILL WANT TO COME TO CRAFT NIGHT!!! I am pretty sure next time I won't be in Florida:)


  5. Finally got to your blog...great job! You are a woman of so many talents!
