The puzzle ball really is exquisite. I love it more everytime I look at it-- which is often! A_Patchwork_Orange really spoiled me on this one:)

Since it looks like tamedvixen has received, I'm going to post a picture of the pincushion I made for her.



I had a lot of fun making it, but the little beads were time consuming! Also, there are 2 magnets in the bottom for picking up stray pins and needles. It was supposed to sort of look like a "faerie ring" with faeries dancing in a flowery circle, since tamedvixen mentioned that she liked faeries and things that were sort of Celtic.

This was the wonderful surprise that greeted me today after work!!

hoxierice wanted to try felting (wet felting and needle felting!) and somehow she must have known that I find felting to be "magical"!

My new pincushion matches my craft room (purple walls, green carpet) and I can't stop touching it and squeezing it!  I am going to wait a couple of days before sticking it with pins!!



Top view--doesn't it look like a clay cane!!?



She also made a matching felted bowl to set the pincushion in!! What a nice surprise!



Thank you so much, Rachel!

...I don't suppose you could tell us where you found that pattern?
There is a pattern for this in the book Omiyage by Kumiko Sudo.

Thanks for the book title, qazicat!  I ordered it today from Amazon. Smiley

Sorry for the double post, but I just saw the beautiful pincushions from catchstars and hoxierice!  They both made my breath catch when they scrolled up.  All the pin cushions just keep getting more beautiful and more creative!  What a great gallery of crafts!

I agree. Everything here so far has been so amazing.

I'm beginning to feel like crap because I sent something not so amazing.  Embarrassed Maybe I'll make and send another.
