I was looking through Ngaire's photos and saw that she had made a pincushion. I can't remember what it looks like (and I can't find it to look now) but I thought at the time "I need a pincushion."

For the last few days I have been going through creative withdrawals so I needed a little pick-me-up. I started mulling over how I could make a pincushion when I found our brand new pack of UNO cards strewn throughout the top drawer of our cupboard - the box is already torn. Nothing upsets me more (well, maybe) than finding games and puzzles with pieces missing and packs of cards being 'dissed'!

I headed straight for my newly acquired stash of felt and whipped up a pouch for the cards and then, being on a bit of a roll, started on my pincushion.

It's not supposed to be a cupcake but for some reason it reminds me of one and I might have to make a cupcake pincushion now - wondering if I have seen one of them somewhere, like on K's blog - she is inspirational too and does absolutely amazing things with felt - or at Etsy - full of yummy, cute things.
