take a few ingredients ::
1. contrasting fabrics
2. sewing machine
3. over locker
4 fluff and split peas
and what do you get?
an over-sized table top pincushion!
it's nice and heavy and stays just where I put it, no more tipping over pincushions for me!

'Hello' I've just stumbled across your blog - as you do! Sorry that was obviously really.

Anyway, love the pin cushion and 'oh my' wow to everything.

Have a lovely evening,

hello! ive been following your blog for quite a while now and have brought some great buttons off of you before. ive just opened up my own shop in cheltenham and, i know this may seem a bit cheeky, im struggling to find a bulk button supplier. do you think you could give me any hints or tips? the pincushion looks great, an ace idea with the split peas!

Love the giant happy tree, would love to see one propping open my door! My only worry would be that the split peas might get damp hanging round a door and then smell musty or swell up or something. Maybe pea gravel would be more suited to the job?

Wonderful blog, good luck with the fabulous new workshop.
