Sew Fresh pincushions

Are you all having fun getting ready for Christmas?  Me too.  Our Internet was down briefly this morning, which left me feeling slightly panicky about my online ordering.  As you can see though, peace and joy have been restored.
This time of year, I don't get too much done in the way of sewing, and usually lean toward small portable projects.  These pincushions were on the cover of SEW fresh magazine (Better Homes and Gardens), and I thought they were pretty cute.
I was able to use up a some of my wool scraps, and the hand sewing was fun and relaxing.  That little mouse is pretty tiny, and I have to keep it away from my kitten.  I might just make her one of her own for Christmas.  Both are stuffed with fiberfill, and the bottoms are filled with some kind of ground up shells I bought years ago for crafting.  It gives some weight, so they stand up.
I'm off to block a scarf and make some cookies!  Enjoy your week!!!!

  3. How is it that there are less hours in the day the closer we get to Christmas? Your owl and mouse are very sweet and I am sure they will be well received. Happy Christmas. Philippa xx
