Woodblocks and Pincushions

Today I'm making pincushions! Well it makes a nice change....

I like doing these...the possibilities are endless. I've been out and bought lots of pieces of different coloured felt. Do you remember the link I gave you a few weeks ago........
Here are some more.....

I'm also still painting woodblocks.....
I used the new Paper Whimsy Christmas digi sheet to cover the block, then I sanded all the edges, added lace, words and snowflakes.
Hope you're having a good day.......

The pin cushions are wonderful and I imagine they are going to come in really handy when you are doing the embroidery classes.
The wood block is lovely, I really like the darker hair. Thats different, what type of paint are you using for these blocks? Watercolours or acrylics? You are realy getting a great finish. You painting just gets better all of the time.You should be really proud of what you have achieved. Well Done, Jaqi x

Your pinchushions are adorable. I did make one of these after you gave us the link (sent it my friend Jo Wholohan in a little package for her birthday).
Lots of fun and I will be making more.
What can I say... LOVE your woodblocks.

Very cute, Linda, and I see you do nice embroidery, too! I really like the 3-D effect of your blocks and the fact that you use all the surfaces.
