Pin It Real Good

Yay! I love these blog hops! I am definitely going to continue taking part in them when we're living in Tokyo. In the meantime...
Thanks to Madame Samm, Hop Hostess Kristen and all for making this one happen! I actually won a prize at the end of the last bloghop - the Hexi one - so I am feeling very happy!

I had been using the same pin cushion for aaaaaaages - a 6 petal flower one - before making a batch of jar-head ones (I've been watching a lot of JAG and have gone all military!) and then of course I added Wonky the mouse to my collection as part of the Hexi Hop. Here they are:
Patchwork Pincushions 2
But for this bloghop I had lots of ideas and things I wanted to try so I ended up making another three! First up a little dresden flower using japanese fabric scraps - one to take to Tokyo! This is only my second dresden - my first was as part of the dresden bloghop! I like using these hops to learn a new technique. Which is what I did with my attempt at scrappy sashiko. I explained my thinking behind this here. I added a loop to this one so I have a better chance to not losing it! Then finally there is the folded one. Details of how I'd change my method next time here too. Here are my happy trio.

I think my favourite is this one:
Dresden Pin Cushion

So there we go! No giveaway this time but my pattern for this little pouch to be made from four 5" charm squares is still available.

Enjoy!

Now please go and visit all my Pin Cushion buddies for today on the hop...
