Thanks for posting the peas in this group Linda! I should have thought of sharing it with you guys. Jenna made this and it is so cute! I don't know if you have seen it or not but it is from the book Super-Cute Pincushions. I love it!

If I have done this right It should take you to a blog of a pincushion club on the Riley Blake fabrics page.

Karen, I'm up at our cabin (what a euphemism!) and all my kids and grandkids just left yesterday. I haven't even given a thought to that animal pincushion in months! Too busy with life and now I'm on vacation (another euphemism! LOL I'm "retired" and always on vacation!)

Cute tea cup, Linda! Such a pretty combination. : )
