Do you ever find there are little things that continually annoy you but that you somehow never get around to dealing with?
I don’t mean things that are really irritating or things that would take a lot of time, money or energy to deal with – just small things that are irksome and that you could fix in about 10 minutes but that that you never see to get around to?
When I first came back to sewing and started this blog the first thing I made (apart from a few blocks) was this little pin cushion based on Mary’s Tiny Cottage Tutorial at Molly Flanders.
I don’t expect this happens to Mary, but my little house just will not stay upright!
I have been thinking I’ll make myself another one since forever but I always end up doing something else instead. Until now. I have finally stopped thinking about it and done it…

Love your new pincushion! It's the small makes for myself I struggle to get round to doing and yet if it was for someone else I'd be finished really quickly!
Oh I love it, fun way to use up extra pieces :)
I love the simplicity of it! And can't wait to see more of your sneak peek item!

You can never have enough pin cushions! Love the new one but don't forget the other…I think the house is very sweet and looks very much loved.
Cute! I totally know what you mean with those little things we keep avoiding although we could fix it in no time! I've been thinking about cutting fabric ;-)
Great for you for making a new one, and a super cute one at that!

Could you come to mine and sit and nag me to do all those annoying won't-take-long jobs! Well done, I've got a half made one from 8 hexies, but usually use a magnetic one
Lovely and colourful pin cushion I like the first one too. I like the colourful pins. half of my pins are bent in my pin cushion
I need to get stronger sharper pins.
I and hubby are on holiday in wales untill next week. We will see both our daughters there. We had a lovely surprise a car a Renault was bought for us. I will take a photo and blog about that soon.

I have a very old pincushion (one of those ones with little people around the outside) it's colourful so I like it but every time I use it I contemplate making another one!! I'm telling myself it's retro though!
Yours are super cute!
Ugh, I have so many irksome 10 minute fixes that I just never seem to get 10 minutes to DO!!! I am so glad you fixed yours it makes me motivated to get my act together. ;)
