African Flower Pincushion

I've been needing a pincushion, but hadn't been able to find a pattern that tickled my fancy then one day I saw this and all of a sudden I heard angels sing!  I was indeed inspired and so, following a tutorial for the African Flower Motif, I came up with this....

What d'ya think?
And what about you?  What have you been up to?
Sit for a spell & tell me all about it!
Big hugs,

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
Psalm 27:14 NLT


  1. Dear Anita, your african flower pincushion looks beautiful! Really lovely and useful thingie too!

  2. Anita, this is just darling! I love it. I think this is a to do and will need to make several for some friends. Its a beautiful use of the african flower. Have a wonderful, blessed day dear friend.

  3. Thank you both very much!
    Glor, it was so easy & quick to work up.
    Definitely a great project for gifts.

    Warm hugs to you both,


    For my part, I've been sorting owls from the crochet-along... not much hooking, but still lots of yarn!

  5. Thanks woman!
    I haven't got as much hookin' done as I'd like myself. I had a few days there where I was in bed sick...Yuk!
    I'm feelin' better though and back to playin' with yarn..teeheehe!

    Big hugs!

  6. That is so cute. I need a new pin cushion.

    I have been knitting projects for my soon to arrive nephew. The baby shower was over the weekend so it looks like it is time to start knitting up a storm for Christmas...


  7. Hey Jenn!
    Thanks girlie & congrats on the baby nephew you have on the way!

    Uuggghhh....Christmas. It's just around the corner and I have been so busy that I haven't even gotten started and I need to desperately!

    Big "have a great day" hugs!
