I'm still on a pincushion roll! I love using felt as it is so versatile and tolerant and instead of having seams to hide the edges, the stitching becomes part of its charm. So the cupcake addiction was put aside and I went on a roll with making birdhouse pincushions!

Of course, I couldn't stop at one... or two!

I also finished off another project that has been sitting around half finished for a while. This is part of the bag I was making and I love the way it turned out:

The rest of my time has been spent on preparing for the launch of my Free Block of the Month Pattern, "What is Love?". I hope to upload the first of the little stitcheries next week, so keep an eye out for it and let your friends know.

Happy stitching!
