Pincushion Swap for Nundle

By the time you read this our weekend at Nundle will be over and we will be on our way to Mildura for Mick’s share of our trip – the Ulysses AGM, where thousands of motorcyclists will be camping at a week long rally.

As we won’t be home before the end of the month I thought I’d better share the pincushion I made for the swap at Nundle so that it can be included in OPAM.

I haven’t done a great deal of English paper piecing and never diamonds, so I’m quite pleased with the way it turned out.

I used some nice fresh fabrics and had an attempt at fussy cutting.

I even found a button to match the unusual colours. 

Ta Da!

Rubbish photos unfortunately, as they were taken at night, as usual.

It was a good piece to play with.

Gorgeous! Such lovely bright fresh colours, love it! and it looks pretty easy to piece too, unlike what I heard about the apple core pincushions.......LOL.

Great pincushion, wish my apple core one had been as successful!!! Lovely meeting you in person at Nundle. Wondered if you were at the same motel as us sunday night, we got to Narandarra?
