Pretty Little Pincushions

Back in December, I saw this book advertised in the sidebar of a random blog I landed on. I was intrigued and quickly requested it via Inter-Library Loan.
One evening, we were invited for dinner to the girls' adopted grandparents while their daughter and son-in-law were home for the holidays. The book happened to come in, so I took it along.
We oohed and aahed at the cute designs and plans were made for the girls to come back the next day to attempt to make some of them with Julene.

Julene sweetly gifted me with this darling pincushion. I love the colors and it's a handy size to work with.
But wait, there's more!
The book also has instructions for making decorative pins!
These are Allison's pins. Aren't they so cute?
Do you think she'll notice if I never give them back?
