Big Excitement!

I received a message on my folksy shop the other day to tell me that one of my pincushions for sale will be featured in  "Creative Crafting Online Magazine"
I am chuffed to bits as they say in these parts! 
There is a link to the site on the left of my blog - and it should be in there from 1st October! 
so - huge grins abound in the JuicyFig household :~)

I have been neglecting my 'creative space' contributions, so today set out to make a new cushion for my folksy shop

 The pile of cushions is growing and growing, poor baby Fig's bedroom that was commandeered in her absence is now full of not only her stuff, but a mountain of cushions that are for ever being re-stacked to prevent a land slide in the night!
The latest is in Heather Bailey Fabrics - I am terrible for collecting fabric then not wanting to use it because it's just too nice, it has taken a lot of will power to get the rotary cutter to them - I hope that now I have used some I have broken my obsession and can now start to plough through lots of fabric to make room for more of course!

I'm chuffed for you! Fantastic pile of pretty cushions. I could do with a lesson on using rotary cutters - I am hopeless with mine and always end up resorting to scissors.xx

congratulations, your pincushions are lovely. I have the same problem with cutting into fabric, I'm sure it's the worst bit of the whole process!

Congratulations! I know what you mean about not wanting to cut into new fabrics. Mine end up sitting on the shelf for a while so I can look at them!

That's good news. How about a bit more. You have won a runner's up prize in my 300th post giveaway! Please e-mail me your address when you can. I wouldn't say no to a pile of your cushions in my bedroom. I have that habit of not using things because they are too nice! x
