And the winner is.....

Angela who guessed 6 out of 7. Congratulations Angela!
Here is the second pincushion which is a fall leaf. Just about everyone guessed a leaf. Here are the ones I have picked for my seven pincushions:

Apple
Leaf
Acorn
Pumpkin
Toadstools
Corn
Squirrel

I was surprised that only one person came up with a squirrel. This made the deciding factor for you Angela.

I have decided to do one of the pincushions as a tutorial this week. I got the idea from Andrea on my homekeeping list who asked about where she could buy these patterns to make them herself. I am making them up literally as I go along. I am going to use the toadstool pincushion for the turtorial as I think my idea of how to put this one together will be simple and there will be no need for you to have a drawn pattern to follow. You will need red and white felt, white glass headed pins and filling. Join me later this week for this tutorial.

In the meantime, check back with me tomorrow for the next pincushion revealed.....

Bump bump bump...can you hear me jumping up and down on my seat. And, you will never believe, I was on the point of changing pie to pumpkin right up until I pressed the send button! I am so thrilled to win one of your competitions, they really have been exciting and have kept us popping back to your blog every spare minute. There is always something new to see and it's so interactive.
Such a pretty leaf, I love the colour and can't wait to see the other pincushions unfold together with the Season :>)
Count me in for the tutorial. I even have some felt...yay
Hugs, Angela

Hi Heidi! (BTW, my favorite doll as a child was a HI Heidi..). anywho, you are very welcome and I appreciate that you allowed me to share your wonderful creations! I found Nancy via your blog and love her work, too, along with all the other ladies who x stitch. Yes, I need to do more. This is the perfect time of year to start stitching.
