"Think Pink" Pincushion

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and our Needlework Group is hosting a Girls Night In tonight and Girls Morning In tomorrow morning to raise funds to support this very worthy cause.  This pincushion or scissor keeper is a "Gift of Stitching" pattern which I have modified and changed a bit to make my pincushion!    Let's all get behind Breast Cancer research and fundraising and "Think Pink" not only this month but every month!   We will be stitching this project tonight and tomorrow!

And in keeping with the "pink" theme, we will be enjoying "Heavenly Cupcakes" beautifully handmade by Brooke!!  Yum .... maybe there will be photos of that tomorrow!!

And further in keeping with the "pink" theme - here is a finished project from a previous stitching day which one of the ladies showed us in Canberra on the weekend!   Beautiful stitching and gorgeous colour!!


  1. Very pretty! You will definitely have to tease us with a pic or two of the cupcakes. LOL

  2. Great job on the pincushion! I just finished downloading that pattern this morning.
    Those cupcakes sound very intriguing!
