Anyway... I thought I'd post a picture of what I made for my son's preschool teacher as an end of year farewell and thank you gift. She is ever such a lovely lady and she had mentioned earlier in the year that she sewed. So, an apple pin cushion it was. Mainly because I couldn't think of anything else, once I had got that idea into my head. I thought an apple was fitting, though (I'm starting to see the downside of blogging: starting to second guess my gifts. Oh well, too late now. It's been given and she said that she liked it).
Sorry about the picture quality. I'm still living in the stone age and using a film camera and I used an ancient roll of film that my dad had found. Too late to try again for a better shot. It's hard to tell, but it's made out of maroon felt and a scrap of fabric that I had.
Finally found the link to the lovely pincushion that inspired me: http://mypiccalilli.blogspot.com/2007/02/pear-shaped.html
