Hexagon Pincushion

Another crochet pincushion!  I love this one!  I came across it on Rivalry last month where I saw it finished in red and beige.  I thought it looked so lovely that I had to make one just like it for myself!  I used DMC Petra No 5 for this one - the original uses 6 colours and I will definitely be making more of these so that I can use some of the lovely colours I have in DMC No 5 perle cotton.  The pattern is by One Loop Short.  A link to purchase the pattern can be found HERE.




I really should get on with some of my stitching again, and I'd love to crochet lots more pincushions too, but I don't think I shall be having a lot of time for either as I'm flying off to Dubai again soon, to stay with Colin in Sharjah.  I didn't mention in my last post that Colin had started his new job in Sharjah, and that I'd been away there with him for a couple of weeks at the beginning of August.  Although Colin had to work we still had a lovely time.  At the weekends (which are Fridays and Saturdays in the middle east) we hired a car and drove into Dubai to do some sightseeing and to visit the many enormous shopping malls they have there.  We also spent time looking around an expat community in Dubai, where we will eventually be moving to.

I'm looking forward to a lovely weekend and hoping to spend lots of pennies at the Creative Stitches & Hobbycraft show at Westpoint, Exeter.  I usually go every year with my Mum, but last year we didn't make it.  We're both very excited and sure to encourage each other to spend lots more then we should…lol!

Hope your weekend will be as fun as mine!  Thanks again for visiting.  :o)
