farm girl friday

       Hi there and happy weekend!  Popping in with a Riddersholm Designs Farm Girl Friday creation!  Connie's challenge for the Design Team this month was - use your favorite (NOT) scrapbbooking accessory, could be something recycling. It has to be spring and light colors.
Remember to leave a comment over at the Riddersholm blog- we will be drawing a winner of a gorgeous give-away! 
                            I decided to recycle a vintage crochet doily and turn it into a pincushion.  I really enjoyed making this.  I sewed a pocket for the inside using quilt batting.  I embellished it with a handmade nest and a resin bird from the store.  I also added a few other cabochons and tags from the Huntington Gardens collection.   I had to make a few homemade stick pins as well.  Love adding my own little unique touches.  I think this would make a beautiful mother's day gift.  What do you think?  Make sure to check out the other creations...they are beautiful!  hugs, cherry
