Started and Finished:

Daffodil Days Pillow -– Found a really great tutorial for  sewing curves by Berry Barn Designs, and decided it was really  time to try them out, and dont be too scared anymore. What shall I say it was really not this scary and was finished quite fast. Still have to improve my on point piecing with curves but I like it. And its finally after more than 2 years a new pillow for our home.


Sunnyside by Kate Spain
Backing by Robert Kaufmann

Pincushion -– my old pincushion, was always so full packed with a ton of pins, so I thought its time for a new one



Once Upon A Time Sampler –- Got March finished

  3. Ahhh! I love your pillow, Cornelia! I'm glad you found my tutorial helpful : ) I was afraid of curves, too, but this project is fast and easy and makes them not so scary lol. Mind if I link your finish up on my blog?

    1. thank you Sarah, your tutorial is totally great and easy to follow, and of course you can share it, I dont mind, thank you

  4. Thank you for the giveaway - you can reach me at jlcasey at gmail dot com.

    Thank you again!

    1. answered you already Lucy, let me know if it didnt reached you, maybe check your spamfolder too

  5. Looove your Daffodil Days! Those sunnyside prints worked great. I hope you shared it with Sarah @Berry Barn. You did an awesome job on the curves.

  6. Oh my word! these are beautiful. I guess it's colors that catch my eye, yellows with pinks and reds. I like your pincushion. You've inspired me to make one myself.

    1. thank you, and I have to say its not pinkish, its a really light red, but was quite hard to photograph sorry
      and yes pincushions are great, but this one took me quite a while to make, I just had to, coz the old one, was far too small for all those pins

  7. Oh, I do adore that Kate Spain cushion! I love curved piecing. Your new pin cushion is sweet, too! And what a lot of work that March embroidery was. Those little pigs are sew cute!
