Introducing - Bzzzy Bee Pincushion!

Have you received your Summer 2015 issue of Jacquelynne Steve's The Art of Home Companion e-magazine?  And did you happen to see the oh-so-cute little Bzzzy Bee Pincushion project inside?

Yep, that's my little design!  

And I'm so happy to be sharing this fun pattern with you in Jacquelynne's newest issue!

If you're not receiving this gem of a magazine, it's never too late :)  Go HERE now to sign up and tell her you would love to receive the Summer 2015 issue!  Seriously, folks, it's FREE and chock full of great stuff - just look at that CAKE!!!

Included in this issue, you will find patterns for Jacquelynne's lovely summer Strawberry Lemonade table runner and topper ..... colors so yummy you can almost taste them!

.... and speaking of taste, you also get the recipe for that mouthwatering CAKE!  There are several stitchery designs, and a super interview with the very talented and generous Heather Valentine who blogs over at The Sewing Loft.  I was not aware of Heather before, but I had a ball going over there and checking out all her amazing creativeness!  I think I'm going to have to have those cute little "Handmade by .." labels :*)

And of course you will also find my little Bzzzy Bee Pincushion!!!

I designed him to have nice, big wings for clipping on my Wonder Clips - I use them all the time now, so I needed someplace handy to place them, and most pincushions don't have a place where they can be clipped on handily.

I also wanted a place to store the Wonder Clips when I wasn't using them - and this lovely vintage Avon jar was the perfect place to allow my little Bzzzy Bee to alight when resting ...
