My creative space

My creative space this week has involved avoiding knitting. Knitting + hot = not fun crafting. Instead, I've been making me a pincushion.
It's a hand-sewn paper-pieced cube and nearly finished! All it needs is the stuffing seam sewn up and some buttons sewn on, which SHOULD happen tonight. If I can find the buttons, which are somewhere on the surface theoretically known as my sewing table...

Curiously I don't own any other pincushions, so this one will be much used and appreciated when it's done!

Other creative spaces are over at Kirsty's.

Oh how your life will change with a pin cushion!! It might help to get that ironing board cover done...!! (sorry, that was a bit cheeky. I hope you laughed!! xxx)

Looks like a fun project! It reminds me of those photo cubes we had in the seventies, very cool xo

Ah, a pin cushion! A staple in the keen crafter's toolkit. Funny, but it is one of those things that you (or at least I) never get around to. I don't have one at all! Yours is lovely.
