I Get The Message...

Okay girls (and a few guys too from my emails!) I am hearing you: Life will not be the same unless you get a postcard with the Mini Pincushion No.1 on it.

If you are not visiting me at an event this year then you can get your first (and following) postcards from your favourite patchwork store.

Each time a store places an order they receive a postcard for each product. We have had orders today from Coffs Harbour to Washington so they are now shipping and heading out to you - no matter where you are in the world!

The First Free Project on a Postcard...

So most of you out there have been reading my blog for awhile now. You know me. You know I can't just stop at one. I make something and I want to make more. And so the Mini Pincushion Collection began...

I needed just a small pincushion to throw into my sewing tin when I went stitching with my sewing circle friends. I whipped up this little pincushion (and it is little) about 3" finished! Of course then I started thinking how nice it would be to have one for each of my sewing tins which lead to "Wouldn't it be nice to share these with everyone!" So here it is: Mini Pincushion No.1:

I simply used scraps of fabric and threads to whip it up:

I used scraps of threads left over from my Pretty Stitches Doily Collection Pattern:

Here are the thread numbers if you don't have the pattern:

Why not make up a little kit for yourself or for a good friend:

How do you get your first free postcard? Come and see me at The Monbulk Community Quilt Show this Saturday from 9:30am, hosted by Mrs. Martin's Quilt Shop. It is at the corner of Main Street and Moores Road in Monbulk, Victoria (look for the fire truck out the front). It's $5 entry and the whole day is to support the local CFA - my favourite charity!

Hope to see you there,
