African Flower Pincushion

My little project yesterday.  


Sandra Paul of Cherry Hearts Designs has recently written a brilliant tutorial for this cute crochet pincushion.  I know I've said it before, but I just love pincushions and couldn't resist crocheting this one to add to my very small crochet pincushion collection!  I would have liked to have used a nicer yarn but my yarn stash is very small and I couldn't wait to start it!  I have some lovely Rooster Almerino dk I could have used (which I bought for another little project I must get round to starting one day), but didn't have the cream shade I would have like for the bottom and sides of the pincushion.  I'm happy with how it turned out though. :o)

I also love pincushions and made several ones but this one belongs certainly to my favourites. It's really lovely
