Picushion meeting

Yesterday ten girls met at our local quiltshop to have a sewing together and the theme was pincushions.

We are a small group that will try to meet now and then to get something done.

We brought patterns and books to share ideas.

I think everyone started to work on a pincushion. I started on a felted pincushion from the book "Pretty little pincushions". It is difficult to find felt in pretty colours here, so I had to use what I had available.

And several of the other girls started on this pincushion found on internet.

I collected some of the pincushions I and the others had brought to the meeting. Lailas sewingcaddy to the left. I started stitching on a similar one too. The felted one I started is the yellow/orange in the middle. Now I have to decorate it with embroidery. The big square one on top is one I got from Linda in a pincushionswap some time ago.

Saying for today:
A rainy day is the perfect time
for a walk in the woods. ~Rachel Carson

But I want to circumscribe this saying:
A rainy day is the perfect time
to sit in the sewingroom .
