I received a really sweet and lovely hostess gift from Mel that came in my favorite colour - PINK! The box is really sweet, and the things inside it were even sweeter! I just couldn't help looking at it, holding it and admiring the work put into it, and the talent that Mel has, to come up with such lovely items.
I especially like the slice of cake pincushion. It gave me inspiration to try to make one myself, and I did not do one, but 4 pincushions! LOL! I made two slice of cake pincushions, and, craving for more, I browsed the internet and chanced upon this site - http://medievalbeads.com/content/view/32/1/ - and I ended up making two more round/barrel like pincushions!
My hubby thought that they look like real cakes too! That must be a compliment, coming from him! LOL! *wink*
Now that is what I call pincushion crazy! *grin*
BTW, notice the red flower on the second cake slice pincushion? That's a yoyo flower I made after buying the template at Sakura Sewing shop in SS19, Subang Jaya recently.
