Pin Cushion for my craft room

Hi there friends,

I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend.
I had a somewhat quiet afternoon, after going with my friend Natalie to choose some yarn ( yummy :)) with her for a blanket she wants to crochet.

When I got home I sat on my couch watching a little bit of tv ( a horrible movie by the way... not my style at all)... But with all the anxiety of the movie I was able to start and finish a project I've been wanting to make for a long time.

I have been redoing my craft room for about a month now ... And at the rate I can do it, it will take me another month to finish it. My basic colors for the room are grey and yellow ( which is a color I love - it reminds me of the sun in Brazil). I have changed the furniture around...have changed a couple of pictures... And I have been making a few things for it...

Now I still need to paint the walls and paint a window seat my husband ... Wonderful husband :) built for me over spring break.

I have finished a pillow, but wasn't able to photograph it yet. I'll show it here soon. But this afternoon I finally made a pin cushion.

I have been wanting to make one for so long. I think I got motivated by the pin cushion Shari from made yesterday. Her pincushion was so pretty ... it gave me the push I needed.

I made mine from a pattern for a blanket I saw on This is such a beautiful blanket and I have had it on my to do list for a I decided to test and make one square and it ended up being just perfect for my pin cushion...

I'm quiet happy with the result. I'll probably try it again and will make a few more.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday and that you find something that makes you tremendously happy this weekend.

Lots of Love.
