if you were one of my amazing guest bloggers for sew full of love, you might have been checking your mailbox for a package of sunshine, mailed from kansas. but alas, nothing happy and fun has ever arrived. yet. i had big plans, that included making these fun cookie cutter pincushions, as seen in country living. and at cut to pieces.
craft fail #1. my hot glue wouldn't stick to the metal cookie cutter, and the cushion seemed bumpy, the foam base wasn't flush, i burned myself and i gave up!
then i decided you might enjoy these beautiful cathedral window pincushions.
craft fail #2. not sure what happened to my center - aren't the points supposed to meet? a huge button still didn't hide it. i will definitely try this one again though, there's something magical about making this block! it seems so complicated but is actually quite easy. unless you're me, and your points don't like each other.
then a whole month had passed (yes it takes me that long to come up with a plan c) believe me, i considered buying a bunch of starbucks cards. but do they have starbucks in canada? and now i am here to say your gifts are mailing out this week. and i'm happy that i have a new go-to gift project.
|my trial bag - success!|
ps - i promise, i bought the valentine's candy before it all went on clearance!
