Look what I received in the mail yesterday. I was so excited about getting a package. I opened it up to find fabric, rick rack, buttons, trim, flower and a paper mache cup. This pincushion is called "Cupcake Pinkeep" by Blackbird Designs. What a sweet name I had to start on it right away. This is my 5th BOM pincushion but it will be the second one I've done...if I finish it. From reading the directions there is painting and gluing to be done on the cup. I hope I can make my look as sweet as a cupcake.
Here is the block that will be the top of the pincushion, can you see the star in the centre?. I couldn't believe I made 1" finished half square triangles (the blocks is 6" finished). If I had thought about it longer I might not have made such a fiddly block but it's done now and I only needed to make one. Next I need to cut a circle with a small plate to gather and form the top of the cup cake. I hope it turns out when I'm done.
