My Place And Yours

Whoa – last week just flew by! Here we are in Saturday again already…

Many thanks to everyone who played My Place and Yours last week, I loved seeing what was on your shelves & I’m so glad you had fun joining in, if you missed it you can have a snoop around here.

The Twitter decided the giveaway winner for me;


That’s you Lisa of Sweet Little Pretties! Email me with your postal deets & I will send you the naughtiest knitting book you ever did see.

This week’s theme was suggested by Nic, my favourite textile designer (honestly, there was a time when I would have bet my life I would never in fact have such a thing as a “favourite textile designer”);

“My Pin Cushion”.

I would like to hazard a guess that most people, even if they don’t really sew, have a pin-cushion somewhere in their house. I know I had one of those tomato ones kicking around here from some dodgy travel sewing kit my Gran gave me well before I would have considered ever using one, it’s just one of those things that seems to hang around.


If you DO sew however, you may have a special pin cushion, you may have a fancy one, or a simple one you made yourself. It may have a story or it may just be the cheapest one you could find in the craft store, whatever it is, we want to see it.

  • My Place & Yours starts on Saturday but you can join in any day throughout the week.

  • Link back here somewhere in your MPAY post so that people know where to come to join in – the more the merrier!

  • To play, take a photo or a bunch of photos of or relating to the theme & leave the link to your post in the list below. The photos can be as fancy pants & stylised as you like, or they can be quick & dirty via an instagram pic – whatever you like. If you would like to write a little something, a lot of something or nothing at all, that’s cool with me.

  • If you play, please take the time to visit some of the other players; that’s the whole point!


  1. Oh no . I just knew there was something missing from my life. I HAVE NO PIN CUSHION! What does this say about my existence as a crafter. I'm a phony!

  2. Yay I won! Thankyou - I will email you shortly

    I have one of those tomato pin cushions too - I don't use it though! Will do a post now!

  13. An impressive pincushion for sure. I like it lots and lots. Sort of zakka-ish.

  14. Your pin cushion is very cute -I love gingham! Thanks for hosting this and I hope that is alright to have a long post incorporating the theme.
