Pin It Blog Hop and a Giveaway

Welcome to "In The Boon Docks"
I hope everyone is enjoying the Pin It Blog Hop! The pincushions from the hop so far are awesome. I'm a little chicken to show you my own creations!

Thank you Madam Samm (The Blog Hop Queen) @ Sew We Quilt
and Head Cheerleader Kristen @ Meadowbrook for arranging all the fun!


Petal

Last night I saw this amazing pin on Lori Holt's. bee in my bonnet. The flower is just so cute, I got up this morning and made this pincushion "Petals". I improvised a bit but I am so happy with it! Lori Holt has a great blog and is so talented! She inspires me which I think is the greatest reason to follow blogs. One idea can take you in a new direction!

Hilda Hen

I spent my time working on Hilda Hen and I just wasn't quite happy. I must have change her five times. I promised my Mom I would let you see her and decide for yourself. She will be moving into Mom's room after the blog hop, Hilda likes this old box to nest in.

Please visit the other bloggers in the hop for today!

  94. I think Hilda is wonderful. She reminds me of myself; getting all gussied up in her red plummage. I'm really considering making a ring/button pincushion to use while doing handwork.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I think Hilda Hen looks quite happy nesting in her box! Has she laid any eggs that are pin cushions? That would be cute! Your Petal pin cushion is a great one to use some of my favorite fabric scraps! I have only made 1 pin cushion in the same style as the tomato ones, so I'm looking for ideas. Thanks for sharing!
