Calling all CUTE family - have I got a cute idea for you - some of you saw Carolyn's version of the Mannequin Pincushion that was from the http://www.thediydish.com/blog/ this last week - this week they have another that you are going to love - Kris & Kim each challenge each other to come up with how to create and make decorating items for their home - go view thier newest video - they make a new project each week: http://www.thediydish.com/blog/ - of coarse they want to know what your take on the project is, too. Enjoy and have loads of fun each week.

Remember seeing them a while ago and don't know where if it was the web or TV. It's going to be fun watching what project they come up with next.

I love the mannequin pincushion. The felt flowers are Cute, but not a new idea - we've seen them as embroidered 3D flowers, but they look beautiful!
Thanks for mentioning that site!

Thank you Martine. Oh 3D flowers have been around a long while and I know this is just another technique for working with them from each of the sister's.

Hi Shirlene,
I write in French because I'm not sure that machine translation is more understandable to you, which is the case for decryption from English to French. If you prefer I can bring before writing.

Here are the pictures and the direct link - go make some lovely flowers and decorate your home.

I actually saw the pillows today in person - and they are lovely - twee (Terri) and I went to Logan today to the 'My Friends Quilting Shoppe' for our monthly 'Bee Z Stitchers' embroidery gathering. This is one very nice quilt store - the idea's are on every inch of this shop. Yummy fabric and the staff was so very friendly and informative. We had so much fun. Hehehe!
