SAL - June pincushion

I completed my June pincushion on the weekend but couldn't share a picture until it had arrived at my dear friend Sam's house.
June's project was the Natalie Bird's pincushion from the Red Book however a special friend gave me a blue one for Christmas last year, so I didn't need another one.
Instead of using my pass I decided that I would make the design that was in the Easter addition of the Homespun Magazine here in Australia. It is still very similar to the design in the Red book but with cute little bunnies and a felt bottom.
I loved making this project, however I think I need some practice stuffing!
Until Next Time -

Where have I been??

I feel that I should explain my absence from Blogging Land and the reason for falling a little behind in my SAL projects.
Over the past 18 months I have had to return to studying to keep a job that I have been doing for the past 15 years (in one form or another). As much as I have been proud of my results and was quietly shocked at what I do know, it has really taken up a lot of my time!  
I still have 6 months to go however I have just finished a 100 hours of work placement (in a preschool setting), s that just leaves 6 assessments to go - not that I am counting!
Fingers crossed it will all go smoothly and I get that little piece of paper the government require!
I have a 3 week break now with no assignments due, so I am hoping to catch up on some other UFO's
Speaking of UFO's - I received my SKoW back from the very talented Belinda Betts almost 3 months ago but just haven't had the time to put on the binding. I am hoping that is all about to change! 
Here is a little peak at the exquisite quilting. I just love it and can't wait to be able to use it!
Take Care & Until Next Time
