mushrooms, taupe & pink

On a scale of 1-10, how corny would it be for me to say I'm "tickled pink" with this pincushion?  Probably a 10, right?  I'm ok with that.  Me and corny - we go way back.

A rectangular pincushion has been on my to-do list for quite a while.  Started thinking about this idea with my Pretty Pairings Bundle and zoomed right in on the mushroom print.  I couldn't decide if I liked the pink or taupe better, so I found a way to not make that decision and used both.

I was going to embroider a little mushroom on the left side until it occurred to me that fussy cutting the fabric into a stamp would be faster ... and cuter too.

And those adorable pintoppers?  I know. :)  Got 'em from a good friend of mine here.  She even makes little mushrooms!  (So wishing I had one in my collection right now.)

That's such a sweet idea! I love the rectangular pincushion it's unusual yet somehow classy. Would you mind sharing how big it is?

Seriously the most cute and adorable pincushion I've seen to date!
Pink and taupe make a great pair :)
(and definitely not corny at all - just a bit too sweet - which is perfectly fine ...)

So pretty! Your work is so precise and neat. I really like the mushroom stamp. I've made some of those and need to remember to use them:)

Your house must be filled with so many adorable things! I love your latest book and am enjoying learning to embroider. You have been my incentive. I also made the little satchel with the tree and hundreds of french knots. My granddaughter loved it.

OK, that is the sweetest little pincushion ever! The little mushroom stamp makes it!

So cute! I used to think one pincushion was enough, but I pinch myself each and every time I have to walk back to the machine for one blessed pin. Simple solution; I have several stationed - fully stocked!- at my busy places I love having fun making the different designs to boot (one is a turtle I designed -too cute!).
Those adorable pin toppers are on my wish list :)

Your pincushion is adorable. Fussy cutting the mushroom on the left and mixing the background colours was a good idea, it really looks good that way. I love those pin toppers too!!

Love it ! Is a tutorial coming ?

My first thought was "how in the world did she make that so "square?" Great job! Secondly, I love your defiant finesse to avoid decision making and use both! Girl Power! I think you and I could talk each other into a lot of things. And well, I'll just "Hmmmmff" to myself over those adorable pins! The things I see on blogs, no one would ever believe me! You are inspirational!
