Hello! Welcome to Susie's Sunroom on this last day of the PIN IT blog hop!
This blog hop has been so much fun! The pin cushions have been amazing and delightful.
And thank you, Kristen, of Meadowbrook , for being our cheerleader, and keeping us organized and in touch. You have both made this such a fun experience for me to be in!
(I think that I will be experiencing "pincushion withdrawal" tomorrow!)
|Make yourself a cup of tea.... and enjoy today's bloggers and their pin cushions!|
This is my special blend...
Here is today's lineup... you'll want to visit everyone to see the pincushions they have created!

I found this pattern and loved that it used lots of small squares. The pattern is called Patchwork Pincushion from allpeoplequilt.com. (And it is free. Click HERE)
The original pattern has the word "pins" on it, but I knew immediately that I wanted to make it say "Pin it!" for this blog hop! I used my favorite scraps of Fig Tree & Co. , Moda fabrics, for this nice-sized pincushion. ( 5 " tall x 10 " wide). It is stuffed with both poly-fill and crushed walnut shells kitty litter. I substituted some lace for the ric rac in the pattern, too.

Now I'd like to share with you the next little pincushion that I made for the blog hop .

I've had my eye on this pattern for quite awhile now, and was so happy to finally make this cute little strawberry with it's jaunty, leafy cap. I have a lot of Moda Fig Tree & Company fabrics/scraps in my stash, from the lines of Mill House Inn, Buttercup, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and Dots, that will be perfect to make a strawberry ... or two....

Luckily , just in the nick of time, Anna, at Noodlehead, posted this precious Berry Basket Tutorial ! I saw it and KNEW it was just the thing for all of my little strawberry pincushions! It is Anna's fabric version of a little vintage pint berry basket. It is so fun and easy to make using Anna's directions in the tutorial. (I have made one for my mother and sister already.)

And I couldn't believe this, ..... just after I finished making these strawberries, my sister, Amy, gave me the cutest little white porcelain berry basket!
The berries I could hardly wait to use this sweet little basket in a million pictures picture.
