Pins and Needles

I'm thrilled at the response to my first giveaway and at all the other giveaways going on at OWOH - there's so much generosity and inspiration out there :)
I was browsing through the other blogs that have entered over the weekend and I came across Happiness is Cross Stitching. I absolutely adore her little bottle-top pincushions - they have swarovski-like jewels on - what a gorgeous idea! Her pins are fabulous too - sew jazzy!
Anyway I've been in great need of a pincushion for some time...I've been using either this little needlebook or the tassel on my scissors...
Now as lovely as they are I decided a little miniature pincushion for my needles was desperately needed.
Sew this little thing appeared :) just the right size for me here.
I'm also working on a bigger patchwork pincushion...I'm umming over whether it needs a lace trim? I don't think it quite goes...
Oh and i'm also working on some labels that pink penguin inspired me to have a go at here. Sew i won't finish this up until i have a label to add :)
p.s. I know its wonky :( First attempt at patchworking AND i have no sewing machine...great way to use up scraps though
