Pin Pals

Morning friends! How are you? It's a rainy week here in PamKittyVille and so I'm doing some reading.  I'm lucky to receive e-books from Martingale to read and review, and today I want to talk about Pin Pals.    I'm a long time fan of Carrie Nelson, you maybe know her as MissRosie.
 
Anyway I'm constantly inspired by her creativity.  This book chronicles  a moment in time when inspired by Amanda Jean Nyberg (aka Crazy Mom Quilts) she began a quest to make pincushion a day.

They're all cute.  I love the little color stories in each piece.  Of course I'm drawn to color combinations I love like this string pieced pinnie.

The book has excellent instruction, tips and tricks, the works.  And the  styling and photography  is lovely, as in all Martingale books.

I've included my favorites here. Right now on Instagram Carrie has a little challenge going, you can read about it on this post.

I even made a pin cushion myself. I love this little daisy pin cushion from the book, so I pulled out some fabrics and made it yesterday afternoon.  You can see it here.

True confession, one of my corners has a leak, but lets not tell anyone.  It's a little misshapen, but hey, it was my first try.  I love those long rectangles and I might try one of those.  Lets face it, there's plenty of scrap fabric laying around just waiting to be sewn into something pretty. 
 
All the above photos are by Brent Kane and used with permission from Martingale. They're pretty. And there's more like it in the book!  I received an e-copy of this book from Martingale but my review and delight with it is my honest opinion.

I think I love them because they are small! Same as babies of every description - kittens, puppies, chicks, etc.

I don’t know what the fascination is, but I love pincushions too. I think because sometimes they are miniature replicas (those are the ones I collect ) and are just irresistible!
