thought I’d give it a try

I’ve long admired Natalie Jo’s blog, Picalilli Days.  She makes the most beautiful pincushions and this year she was so generous to run a tutorial on how we could make one of our own.

So I tried it. 

It was fun but it wasn’t easy.

I really like my little girl pincushion

but it’s probably the only one I’ll ever make.

Besides a wonderful talent, Natalie Jo has a lot of patience.  I admire her skills even more now.

It is darling. It reminds me of the dolls that my grandmother used to make with crocheted skirts.

I do not think, in my 54 years, I've ever seen anything this darn cute. Seriously. This is so so so amazing.
