Yesterday Townie Husband took me out for lunch in Totnes. Afterwards I spent a happy hour wandering around the little shops at the top end of the High Street, enjoying some time off from my busy preparations for the Nostalgic Mix Fair in (gulp!) just three weeks time.
My cupboard is filling up …
But I think I still need more. So yesterday I was wandering with a purpose, looking for inspiration, when I saw some hedgehog pin cushions. Which, through a rather convoluted mental process(!), brought to mind the mouse pin cushions my mum used to make many years ago.
Rather like these …..
They are sooo easy to make, just two pieces for the body, plus tail and ears. They are weighted with rice at the base so they stand up nicely and make great ornaments as well as pin cushions. I’ve put the pattern and instructions together for you – and you can download it for free – it’s in my pattern library – please see the buttons at the top of the page or in the sidebar – you’ll find loads of patterns listed there.
And today we all went down to the beach …
Where Rosie and Ben played some very silly chasing games ….
Trying to keep warm! Brrrrrrrrrr…. penetrating easterly – where has that spring sunshine gone?
