Disappearing 9 patch

Since I'm a follower of Allison's blog "Cluck Cluck Sew" 
I've always wanted to make one her great Tutorials. 

As I'm just an amateur seamstress, instead of a quilt I've made a cushion

To make it a bit more original I made it reversible with some linen fabric and a botton.

Spring smelling in Winter

I few days ago a received these two lavender hearts for Xmas. Aren't they lovely? They smell so nice!

My first pincushion

A good friend of mine was coming over to spend this five-day holiday  in Madrid. However, there has been a savage air traffic controller strike here in Spain, which has had the air traffic completely still for two days, so my friend has had to stay in Barcelona (hopefully she could get her money back). It's been a completely caos over here and thousands of Spanish people's holiday or relaxing plans have been ruined because of the greed of  very few people... At least I have had more time than usual to blog around to see what my favourite bloggers have been doing lately.

Pink Penguin is one of my favourite bloggers ever. I find her really generous to share her awesome tutorials with all of us. I have also always loved her cute little pincushions, so this morning I have made this one inspired by hers.
