{teacup pincushions}

I'm slowly getting back to the crafting thing, and I swear, it's like a snowball.  I started, and now I am in a furry of crafting!  I am trying to get some Christmas presents made - yes, I know it's only May.
But, in my defense - I have 3 boys {the youngest of which took his first steps last night! YAY!!!}
Also, it looked like Christmas here yesterday and today.  Woke up to roughly 4" of snow yesterday morning, and then today it looked as though we were in for a May blizzard.  So cut me a little slack, okay? - K.

I found a tutorial over at Martha's.  
The woman drives me batty, but she does find some awesome projects.
Betz White can make just about anything out of felt, I swear.

This is my interpretation of her teacup pincushions.  I think they are adorable.

The bottom one is for my mother-in-law for Christmas (and I am crossing my fingers she doesn't read my blog, otherwise, Merry Christmas in May!) and the top one I haven't decide what I am doing with yet.  It may go to a friend who is just starting out with sewing.  But first I am entering it in the Store Challenge at my LQS. Unless I enter the bottom one.  I still can't decide, and I have to take it in tomorrow.

And can we say cashmere pincushion!?!?  My pins have never had it so good! ha!ha!
