My Creative Space

I've been getting things finished...

The mushroom house pincushion is finished and waiting to be sent...

I used a great tutorial from here.


I've completed the garden for the fabric dollhouse I plan to make for Miss G's second birthday, with carrot patch and pond with a water lily.

It's from the tutorial by UK Lass in US - it's also in the One Yard Wonders Book if you have that.

Nikki made some rippers if you want to check them out.

They actually go quite nicely together, but I'm only sending the pincushion for my swap!

That mushroom pincushion is GORGEOUS! Is there a pattern or tutorial for this?

I am sure the finished house is going to be great too - the garden certainly looks fabulous.

Oh my goodness!!!
I love my pincushion. You did such an amazing job. The red boots by the door, just kill me & yes I had chosen the red ones.
Thank you so much also for the nappy pocket. I'm certain it will come in very handy.
I feel very lucky to have received such a gift.
Thanks again
