Turkish Rose Pincushion

Doing the “Design Wall Monday” and the “On the Needles” posts and link boxes is creating a bit of a problem for me.  First, there are so many beautiful quilts on the design walls that readers share.  There were 111 links on there yesterday and that means there were 100+ quilts I want to make.  There were many of Bonnie’s Easy Street mystery quilts and just about the time I see one that I think is the prettiest one I’ve ever seen, the next one I see is just as pretty.

The “On the Needles” post usually sends me off to follow links on Ravelry and you know where that always leads . . to The Loopy Ewe, and then I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to sneak the “box of fun” inside without having to explain why there’s more yarn coming in.

Even the “Get it Done” posts are causing problems for me.  Sue had this post and down towards the bottom, were the cutest little pin cushions.  I wrote Sue to find out where I could get the pattern.  She put me in touch with Sandi at A Legacy of Stitches.  Sandi agreed to share the pattern and she has! Here’s her post about the pincushion, with a link to the free pattern.

Wool Felt

I ordered some wool felt and . . that’s as far as I’ve gotten but I can’t wait to make some of these cute little Turkish Rose Pincushions.  Thanks, Sandi, for sharing the pattern, and thanks Sue, for posting this on your blog and sharing the info with me on where I could get the pattern.

    Have fun making these! I have 15 of them going now, in various stages of construction. They will make great gifts.

    I think you should send the yarn to your neighboor, and then pick it up when Vince is not at home!

    What fun to see that you liked my pincushion design so much that you wanted to make one! Or maybe you’ll be like Sue and make a bushel of them. Working with woolfelt is so enjoyable. Love the way the needle goes so softly through the fiber. Makes for very relaxing stitching! Enjoy!!

    Beware! Wool is as addictive as every other quilt-related item! And a wool stash grows, too. I love her pattern, too.
