k this is going to sound odd. but i made this pin cushion today because i have one that is shaped like a chicken and i feel back sticking pins into him. it makes him look like a voodoo chicken and that makes me sad  Sad

so i made this up today a la penny rug style and now i have a guilt free pin cushion, and its pretty cute too if i do say so myself.  Tongue

not super special but i've noticed a lack of posts with pictures this week (possible everyone else had finals too) so i 'm celebrating being done with school till september and craftyness in general.

oh and its made out of felt thats why it's radioactive looking..hehe

That is the sweetest!! Love the colours! I think I'd feel guilty about putting pins in that one as well, though.  Grin
I can't remember who without checking, but someone commented on my stitching on the wrist bands, (might have been you...) but girl, that stitching of yours is perfection portayed!!!

thank you thank you. i love doing blanket stitch. i do it so much i think i could do it in my sleep. and with my new obsession with felt. perfect Smiley

about sticking pins in this one. i told my boyfriend the chicken thing and he laughed at me and then when i said that this one was too cute to put pins in that might need to make another, he though i was nuts Tongue

thats funny. my boyf likes that i'm crafty, he thinks it's cute. which is a definite plus. only problem is i want to make him crafty stuff but have no idea what to make. i already made him a quilt that he loves but stuck on what else he might enjoy

Very cute! I know what you mean about the chicken. I love the lady bug pin cushions but couldn't bear to constantly prick it with pins.

I think there's a few threads about crafting for guys (or was that on glitter a long time ago..) but I know what you mean. I keep making him stuff I think he'll like and he likes it a lot because I've made it, but he doesn't necessarily use/wear it... Think T-shirts are the only thing he really appreciates, and especially the ones I make him decide what he wants on them and then I design and make them... Makes him feel part of the whole creative process I think.  Awwhh, bless their little cotton socks. Wink
