Spring is Here!!!

Well, its here on the calendar. Here in the Midwest, well its more of an idea that comes and goes. But my heart is happy because my spring bulbs are peaking out and doing well. It won't be long now, even if they have to poke through a late snowfall. Spring makes me feel hopeful and getting out for some nice long walks does my soul some good. I just had to celebrate the beginning of this awesome season by making some new pin assortments. I have both a full 10 pin assortment and a small, 6 pin carded set of pretty flower pins. They are my favorite. I mixed in some pretty glass leaves and in the big assortment I added a butterfly. I hope they make you happy too.
I have lots of new things to share with you.
This is my new pincushion. I call it Dog Love. I used up all my kitty fabric and I needed to pay some homage to my pup, Jordy. The fabric is from Spoonflower. I love that anyone can design fabric and have it printed. Someday I'd like to try that out. In the meantime, you can find them here on Etsy or on their website. There are so many talented designers, just folks like you and I. You can choose from many different kinds of fabrics. This is their cotton. It has a tight weave and the printing quality is so good. I have some more new pincushoins to share with you. I call this one, "Sew Much Fun".
I founds so many pretty sew themed prints that I love. I've been busy working on them. I think they would make great Mother's Day gifts for a sewing mom. The prints are from a few different lines. The pin print is called "Make Time" by Aneela Hoey for Moda. It somes in a variety of pretty colors. The adorable scissors is part of a cute print from from "Sew Wonderful" by Paper and Cloth for Moda. The pink fabric frame is by Tula Pink for Riley Blake. Here are a few pincushions in Make Time. I call these "Pin Love". They come in Blue and White, Blue in 2 shades and an orange/red version in 2 shades.
The last one "Stitch Love". has some pretty low volume prints by Lori Holt called "Hush" and Sew Wonderful, "Stitch in Time". I've never made a white pincushion before. I just love how fresh and bright it feels.
If you work in fiber, knit, crochet, make tassels or fiber jewelry, weave or scrapbook, Here is my Spring Fever yarn assortment. This one has so many different bright colors and great textures!

I'm visiting your blog for the first time.so happy to have this visit. I love making pincushions, and you have made many sweet ones. Just now I'm preparing to make 30 pinnies to give as gifts at our fibre festival sew in. I have done this other years and they are always well received. I was looking at both the fabric themed ones you made as well as the wool ones with leaves, Both are so warm and inviting. Thanks for sharing your creative space.
