Robins Egg Blue Bird Pincushion




oops, I forgot to allow comments. Isn't their a way to have it do that without having to hit that button every time??
I am sooo excited about this pincushion. I just LOVE it!! It is now listed on my ebay.
You know how you start something and it doesn't quite come together, that is what happened here, I had the pincushion done weeks ago and just set it aside, I went to my local scrap booking store and picked out, yet another, Glimmer Mist. Robin's Egg Blue...so beautiful. I came home and dived right in, I dyed the wool a pale blue when it was almost dry I spritzed with with this Glimmer Mist. I LOVED IT. So I ran in and got the white wool felt and dipped, spritzed and dried it too. THEN I went to my stash of Ribbons, got out this beautiful silk ribbon and spritzed it!! IT ALL CAME TOGETHER! It needed more detail, so while sitting in the car on the way to have lunch in Portland I add the stitches to flowers and leaves. Of course I added my sparkly pins. Some with Martha Stewerts glitter and some with glass glitter. Well, if that wasn't enough, I painted up a matching cupcake in watercolor...look at that CUTE flower!! Its just like the one on the pincushion....way to much fun!! Let me know how you like this one!! I love your comments! My 200th blog is coming up soon...I will be giving away one of my birdies!! Stay tuned!
