This Weeks Finds....

 
It's been a grey old week here in Dunedin although the sun came out on Saturday to cheer us all up! It's been panic stations around here as I realized I was low on my candle stocks and had to make them in the evenings. Then, I got an order yesterday for 20 skull pincushions so it was into my sewing room for the day.
 
Here's what I found this week.....

I'm going to make this into a pincushion...

  1. It's a real kewpie Tinker. Just like the lacey tu-tu wearing ones that were tied to a cane my parents always bought me from our Royal Show when I was little.

    p.s. love your pin cushions - just had a look at your shop - they're gorgeous!

    1. Thanks Kylie! I wanted to make a kewpie candle but decided the outstretched arms could be a problem with posting so made the one in the previous post.I thought if I put it in boiling water the "dints" would come out but no luck...

  3. Great book too. I need to triple reinforce the books I bring home from the op shop, my little one loves them...almost a little too much. Still working on teaching her to be gentle.
