Circles & Stars, Needles and Pins

I have had the pleasure of creating these lovely felt stitching aids over the last week. They are a new pattern, soon to be released, by Diane Leftwich. They were fun to make though there were many small pieces but I think the results make the effort worthwhile. Thanks Diane, for letting me have a go at your lovely new pattern. Her previous pattern, Birds in the Hedgerow, is gorgeous too and we are making it in my classes in Term 1. This is the scissor fob.

This is the needlecase.

Here is the pin cushion. Seems a shame to use them!

We headed up to Sydney today for the funeral of my husband's wonderful Aunty Dorothy. She was almost 93 and had lived a wonderful full life. She did so much for others and the church (where she and her husband had been a member for about 60 years) was full and the stories shared were so special. We will miss her very much but know she is in a far better place.
