...working hard on the last project of the year for the LAPC .
I am slow because I have injured my right arm. Xrays and ultra sound tests this week have revealed what I guessed, carrying heavy suitcases have damaged my bicep muscle where it inserts into...something or somewhere in my inner elbow.....its painful and frustrating, the doctor has suggested 4 weeks of rest may be the cure although I am not sure that I am very good at resting! The alternative is an injection of something into the muscle....which sounds painful and I am a baby about such things...so back to my heat pack and the sofa I go!
For this gorgeous project I am combining wool with fabrics from my Hollyhock Cottage fabric collection and enjoying the texture of the yarn dye that I love to use as a stitchery background. Emma has been busy cutting the large daisy buttons that I used on the pretty Secret Garden pincushions for me to use on this new project.
You can buy a pattern for the garden pincushions that includes both the birdhouse and the beehive design and two of the buttons or we have put together some kits which include the pattern and 2 buttons which if you add some toy fill will make two pincushions.
After many requests for these large daisy buttons to be sold separately from the pincushion patterns we have finally got around to putting them into packs of 6 so you can make pincushions for your friends or enjoy using them on some other project.
