Another pincushion and Raspberry Block

I decided that I needed to make a bigger pincushion. The cupcake, while cute, and still being used as a decoration, was just too small for all of my many pins. So, I decided to make a mini-sprocket pillow and use that as a giant pincushion. I love it!!

Yea! Still looks crazy with all those pins, but at least they all fit!! ;)

I also finished the Raspberry block!! Yipee! I really like how this one came out!! Only one more!!! :)

Ooh! Love that raspberry color! I may have to find some of that Kona. It's gorgeous! Your fabrics really make it pop. I know what you mean about needing a big pincushion. I got one of those magnetic tray things in my stocking for Christmas but I never use it. Maybe I could hover it above the floor and move it around to pick up those stray pins that always seem to fall in the worst places!

Aww, your mini sprocket is just fantastic! It's a good reminder that I need to get making one of those pillows sometime soon. And your rasberry block is amazing!! Lovely sewing!
