A while back she asked if I would design a pattern using her Valdani Three Strand Floss Collection, called Folk Art Fusion. It is a 12 color collection of beautiful colors available from her online store here.
I decided to make a Sunflower Pincushion. This pincushion is about 5" round and the pattern has instructions for making it in Wool or Punchneedle embroidery. It is really a quick little project and was so fun to make! As a punched pincushion, it would be a unique addition to your collection. As a wool pincushion it would be a darling addition as well as quick to finish! If you have followed my blog for a while, you have seen my coasters in the past. This pattern could also be made into coasters as well. (The cork coaster bases are available on my website notions page).
The picture above is a bit brighter than it really is, but Folk Art Fusion is a collection of great colors to work with as you can see below! She creates all sorts of pretties with these colors.
You can buy the Pattern and any Punchneedle supplies on my website, Hallbrook Designs, and the floss collection and wool felt kit on her website, The Raspberry Rabbits! Check out all of her other goodies while you are there! She is very talented and creative! Her designs are unique and modern, yet have a country flair to them also. She's always keeping things "hopping" on her blog with fun offerings and stories!
If you are a visitor from Michelle's blog, I welcome you to my blog! Feel free to become a follower and join me in my quilting (and punching) adventure. Take a look back at some past posts. I hope you learn something new and decide to come back and see me! Be sure to visit my online store, Hallbrook Designs and see what I have to offer you. I love English Paper Piecing, Punchneedle, Wools and Appliqué.
As a celebration of my friendship with Michelle, I'd love to have a drawing for a copy of the Sunflower Pincushion! Follow me if you like my style and leave a comment telling me what kind of quilts or handwork you like to make and if you are interested in the drawing! I'll draw next Sunday so be sure to allow reply emails in your profile so I can let you know if you won! ( if you want to buy the Sunflower Pincushion Pattern today, you can choose another $9 pattern from my site if you win the drawing!)
Thanks to Michelle for this fun little blog hop we cooked up and thanks to you for visiting today!
Take care and come back soon!
