Sweet pincushion

Those monthly craft cafe mornings seem to roll around very quickly  at the moment but I can't think of a  better way to spend a Saturday than with lovely ladies, chatting and crafting while drinking delicious coffee.  Today we made super sweet pincushions, the original design for these was from a recent Mollie Makes magazine  in the shape of an apple.  If you want to make one here is how.  This was my version,

I am so pleased with it and it was so quick and easy to make.

Can you spot my mistake from this angle?

Underneath the pincushion is  a new quilt I bought in Primark earlier in the week, only fifteen pounds for such a gorgeous way to cover our old sofa and bring a bit of colour into the room!  

They have a really good range of bright new spring items in their home range at the moment, including this picture which looks fantastic against the conservatory wall.

Enjoy bringing a bit of sunshine into your home this weekend!
