party favors

Ok, phew, party favors are finished! They’re little wee pincushions – 3" tall, made from my new Japanese fabric, and I’m giving them away tomorrow. I have a little game planned for tomorrow when I unveil (too dramatic) my blogiversary project. So I’m thinking around noon-ish all this will happen. First five winners of my little birthday party game will get a pincushion.

maybe this little wonky guy will be yours?

or this one with the flower buttons?

maybe miss pom pom face?

or little ducky belly?

this gal with the belt of lace bias?

ok, that’s it for me for today I swear!

    Too cute!! I just have to say we have very similar taste in kids books. I am a HUGE fan of Mitsumasa Anno and have almost all of his books, LOVE Mr. Gumpy (the illustrations and sweet stories), and have been a huge Lois Lenski fan from childhood. I’ve scored many of her vintage books at yard sales that I remember reading as a child – the books for older readers are wonderful as well. I look forward to checking out some of the other authors you recommend…

    Nice re-design, I like it! BTW, have you seen Nu Amu Misin’s website yet?
    They have some cute cake cushions that I was reminded of when I saw your pincushions.

    Oh I really want to play. Well, actually I really want to win. And because I’m so terrible at figuring out time zones I used ‘s meeting planner (how high tech is that!) but it put Thurs noon in Chicago as Friday 1 am for me in Taipei! Yikes. They’ve colored that red to show it’s normally sleeping time but I’ll prop my eyelids up with toothpicks so that I can join y’all!
