Loch Arklet.


Just happened to spot this from the car on my way back from Inversnaid last weekend.


If you happen to be driving in the opposite direction when I'm in this "one eye on the road, the other on the scenery" mode, just cut me some slack .. and keep your fingers firmly crossed!

I can absolutely see why this is called the 'PINCUSHION' PROTEA.

Die enige eg SUIKERBOSSIE (ZA).

Read all about this amazing plant, this is the BEST article I've EVER come across on any flower:HERE


Protea flowers normally remain closed, (with the style curved, and the stigma within the mass of tepals), until an insect, bird, or rodent disturbs the flower. At that point, the flower snaps open, the style straightens and the stigma is held some distance above the bloom.

I'm only 50% sure about this one.

Inspiration for piecing on top of pin cushion found here.


Blogged about here.

I had this little dog cut out sitting on my work table. It was taunting me. I had to make another pincushion.

As you know, I don't normally do B&W .. but I thought I'd give it a go just to see what the reaction was. Any advice you B&W experts can give me will be much appreciated.


See here for the original colour version.

A pincuhsion that I may use in my swap. This one is made with 100% linen, quilting cotton and is stuffed with lentils and Kopak seed pod fibers.

Thanks for the well wishes....


Have a wonderful Sunday!!


Pincushion for my partner. Hope you like it!

FYI - this is a pretty big pincushion - about 6" across.

I used felt and cute japanese fabric.

I was waiting for something to come in the mail for my pincushion, so I started playing with my scraps for a practice one. I like it so much though I think I might just send it to you partner. What do you think?



this is my contribution to the pincushion swap. It measures 2.5" x 5.00". Sorry there were no peek views but once I started it I had to continue until it was finished.. As you can see it goes on the front of your sewing machine. I have one and find it one of the most useful 'bits ' I have ever made. Hope you do to ,partner.

Here is Mt. Fujimidai located in the south end of the Japan Central Alps.

Altitude is approximately 1,700m, and it is not high mountain, but there are not so so many high trees because wind is very strong here.The gentle hilly areas are covered with bamboo grass mainly. The hilltop looked like a pincushion by the snow.

A part of the mountain range of the Japan South Alps is seen in the left depths, and the peak outstanding most is Mt. Hijiri (3,018m).
