Couldn't keep away!

So much for having a little break. Not being on the computer is like having both your legs cut off and your arms pinned around your head. At least it is for me.

I just remembered that I forgot to put up pics of the pincushions I made a couple of weeks ago. I did put them on flickr but here they are if you missed them:

They are based on the lovely pincushions on the Purl Bee blog here. I was experimenting at the time with foundation piecing so I made them on a base fabric of homespun which helped them keep their shape. The foundation pieced blocks I made are for a swap so I'll try and remember to post a pic when it's finished. I'm looking forward to that swap and want to make a cushion when I receive my blocks.

Oh yeah, and I think I also forgot to post a pic of the little woven guy I made! He is called Edgar the Oddball and he is my friend.

Oh, and another little embroidery that I did recently, inspired by my first day back at work after the New Year break:

Last but definitely not least, congratulations to my friend mafiosagrrl on her cool blog award. Go check out her awesome blog! I've been reading it for a while now and I love hearing (and seeing) what she's up to, she's so creative, funny and clever :-)
