Felt Beehive Pincushion

Just back from a lovely weekend in Sydney catching up with the children for Father's Day which is not technically until next weekend here in Australia, but our family celebrated with three children in Sydney this weekend! We enjoyed a great breakfast by the beach yesterday morning and a fabulous Thai meal last night! It is, of course, all about the food!! We are looking forward to celebrating with Elliott next weekend! We also celebrated Nadia's (Sam's girlfriend) move to Sydney for her new job which she starts tomorrow! This cute little felt beehive pincushion is a project we will be working on at Needlework next week! Made from scraps of felt and with embroidered bees, it will be a cute companion for the ladies' sewing kits! Fun to make and a great design of Sylvia's which she has kindly shared!

This is the simply gorgeous needle case which I received last weekend at the Retreat in my bag of goodies! How lovely was it of Kim's mother to stitch one of these needle cases (or a small embroidered bag) for each one of the 66 ladies who attended? Very much appreciated!

And Shirley W has made a couple more of these great little wrist pincushions for last week at Needlework - so I bought one! And I'm really pleased to report I had a big walk both days in Sydney along the beach and around the headland and my knee is coping fairly well, so I'm pretty happy with that! Hope your weekend was much fun too!!
