I'm not the tidiest of people and any work area I inhabit very quickly gets untidy, there are usually strata of projects anywhere I work!  I've recently commandeered the spare room for my crafty adventures and true to form its gotten really messy, there are bits of thread all over the floor (and pins!!) there are scraps all over the place and pattern pieces everywhere!  Its just not good enough and then I saw this pincushion featured on Sew, Mama, Sew and knew my life would not be complete unless I had one so I did what any respectable crafter does, ignored my family for a few hours and made one! 

I used some tea-towels I had picked up from Poundland so you know it didn't cost much!  Wotcha think?  I think it looks pretty nifty, I need to put some more weight in it, its weighed down with rice but I think I might get some gravel (maybe?) to make it heavier!   Just to show you the problem here is the before picture......

and here's the after picture......

now if I could just sort out the bed and the cupboard I'll be laughing!!!!!

any ideas to make me more organised?!


  1. Oh, what a lovely idea. And there is nothing wrong with your bed and cupboard it looks just right.
    My advice to sort out the mess would be - just shut the door and then no one else can see it :)

  2. you wont regret leaving your family to make this. i didnt!

  3. Thats a great item to make, I might have to make one. I'm glad there are other untidy people out there as well as me!
