New Challenge at Try it on Tuesday

Hello Everyone. Thank you to all of you who visit and make it a happy and special place for me.

Time for our second Challenge this year at Try it on Tuesday and the theme this  time is Anything but Square. Lots of inspiration from the wonderful team if you go to TIOT to have a look. Check our rules as well while you are there and then you could be one of our TOP 5 chosen by the team. If you are chosen you could be invited as a guest designer for a future challenge. That is how I got onto the team and I am so happy and proud to be a part of it.


I made hat pincushions which are definitely not square.

You can find instructions on how to make one here and mine are based on that tutorial with my own twists as always.


For the small one I used the lid from a can of spray paint and the top from a tin of coffee. The larger one was the bottom half of a big yoghurt pot, that I strengthen with card, and a piece of strong card for the bottom. The material is all the bits left over from a quilt that my daughter made. She always gives me the bits that are left over from her projects.

Hope to see your entry for the challenge soon as you have 2 weeks to make something that isn't square

Love Chrissie xx

  18. Sorry I'm so late visiting, but life truly got in the way today, as I tried to install the new phones I purchased. What should have been an easy "plug into the wall and go" turned into a nightmare, since my internet is connected to my phone service. Need I say more?

    I love these little pin cushions. I love them so much, I may ask to use this post in April when I recycle things each day until Earth Day. I think this is a fantastic way to recycle, especially some of that dreaded plastic we are all stuck with.
