I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

While trying to organize my fabric stash, I found some scraps my great-grandmother used for those little vintage strawberries and some hexies that had been sewn together. Seemed like perfect fabric for a pincushion...and an excuse to shove all the fabric back in the hutch for another day.

Did you see my attempt at a needle-felted cat?  Cheesy

It's very sweet, I love the tiny kitty.  How wonderful you were able to use fabrics from your great grandmother!

Another amazing pin cushion! Are the little dolls something you already knew how to make? This little girl is so sweet, as is your kite flyer!

That is such a work of art I would hesitate to put pins in it.  The kitty is so cute - that's more than an attempt - that's a success!

An adorable pincushion. What fabric did you use for the doll? She is so tiny. I assume you used wire to make her posable.  I am so impressed by the little cat.

Wonderful, wonderful and wonderful,  all three are wonderful.  Did I mention how much I love these, especially the little kitty?
