Do you want a pincushion too?

The Gum Tree Designers and I had a little secret pincushion swap....
We each made a pincushion with some leftover fabric,
from the 'Springtime' quilt
we made for the 'Fresh Hope' Charity.
The pattern for the quilt is available very soon.
You can visit HERE to see the other girls beautiful designs
and there is a free one to make as well.

Here's the pincushion I made and sent to Jenny!

Would you like one too????
I am going to make another pincushion
different colored fabrics of course and the first person
who guesses the colors in it or guesses
the closest to it will win it!
Thinking caps on....
Leave a comment on this post only please...
I like guessing games
So start guessing...
This guessing game will end on Monday 26th of July...
This has now finished and I will announce the winner/s
on Tuesday 27th July
Sweet Cinnamony Hugs

I guess you will make the pincushion from leftovers from the ironing board cover and the ironing caddy. You have to have a complete sewing assescoire :)

I was going to say green and pink but some one already guessed that so I will say pink and burgundy and hope no one has said that

Cyndi said...

That pincushion is absolutely beautiful, Dawn...I'd hate to stick pins in it! :o)

I'm like Illene, I think someone already guessed my colors, but I'm going to say them anyway...pink, cream, and soft green!

XOXO,

Jessica said...

I love the pincushion! I hoping purples are the colour!?!

Lisa M. said...

I'm going to guess warm "cinnamony" colors, maybe with some gold?

Bronny said...

My first guess would be butter yellow and light denim blue.
My other guess would be lime and lilac.
Thanks for this chance...a bit of fun..

Graciela said...

Hi Alba !!!!
I think green and pink,
thanks, and have a good weekend

Debbie said...

I have been trying to make a pyramid pin cushion but gave up, I love yours and can make that. I think you will use the scraps from the ironing board cover (another great idea) for the next pin cushion.

Terry said...

Love the pincushion Dawn! Several of my guesses have already been taken, so I'll say orange and lime green. Those are some of my new favorite colors! :0)

Diane H said...

Seems like all the colours have been picked already - I'm going to say Cinnnamon!

Miss Nancy said...

What color will you use? I say the color of cinnamon rolls, cinnamon, and the color of the creamy frosting. Sounds good enough to eat, almost.

Have a super great pincushiony day.

June said...

I'm going to guess that the new Pincushion will be Green & Gold.

Have a great day.
June

Bonniedoo said...

Your pincushion is gorgeous Dawn. I just adore those Rouennerries fabrics! I will guess blue and chocolate brown... but I think it would look lovely in any colour!!

Janelle said...

Sue from Cyprus said...

Hi Dawn

My guess is a cinnamony colour and with some sort of creamy frosting to go with it. Love those colour!.

Wendy B said...

Dawn hi,
My goodness, I am way behind with my comment for this beautiful blog entry. I absolutely love love love this gorgeous little pincushion. The colours areamazing and the ric rac trim is just heavenly. Have you couched that (she asks in awe and wonder :>) Jenny is a very lucky gal :>)

Well, I have to say, most of the colour choices I would have gone for have already been suggested so i am going to shut my eyes and try to visualise a little pincushion. I can see it in navy blues reds and creamy white. Well, It might work :>)
Sending you lots of love as always.
Angela xx

Jude said...

love the pin cushion and my idea is blue and yellows with a hint a green

Chris H said...

I think.... lilac and green with a tiny bit of apricot color?

Solstitches said...

I'll go for lilac, purple and cream although the Rouenneries fabric is my all time favourite and I think another just like it would be perfect!

Allie said...

Wah, I missed it - stupid internet - but that's ok, I'm glad, because I have my lovely quilt to look at and drool over! Honestly Dawn, I pet it at least once a day.
