100th blog post pin-cushion giveaway!



Hey! Everyone who feels like they just must have one more pin-cushion, Im having a giveaway to celebrate my getting to 100, mostly useless, silly ideas that are yet to come to fruition, never really helpful but might have made you laugh, sometimes to become Etsyed, things mostly on the backburner here at Textured Leaf Central.
 If you liked this one that I made for Kates Pin-Cushion Swap then just leave a comment for me to read while Im taking a break and am off to renovate my mums house for the next week. Ill announce the winner next Monday!

P.S If you have a favourite colour Id like to know.

Talking to Kylie K the other day and she said you were the big inspiration behind all the other girls. I also think I met you and your hubby at Suzanna's in Bentleigh where my daughter used to rent a room and maybe up here at Deb's. Your blog is an inspiration and always enjoyable. Cherrie

Oh yes, I need one more, especially one of your amazing concoctions!
Congratulations on reaching 100 posts!
It's been a lovely inspiring read.
Fav colour is green. :)

Kate said...

Oh yeah pick me, please pick me. I would LOVE to win one of your gorgeous creations. That way I could have one that would live in the kitchen where I really do most of pinning while I'm cooking.
Happy 100, have fun at your Mum's and have a wonderful week. X

Tanya said...

aren't you a nice daoughter! Hope renos went well. So Gina isn't the only lucky one to get one of these lovely creations.
Kate has me intrigued about pinning while cooking!
Happy 100th!

Having just clicked on to Gina's blog and seeing this gorgeous creation I HAD to come see the blog of the creator! It is really, really gorgeous. Almost to gorgeous to stick pins in! And happy 100th post ;)

Gina said...

Well, obviously don't count me in... But happy 100th post!!

Jane said...

I have tried to make a pin cushion many times, unfortunately i was rather unsuccessful each time. Have a major problem of running out of pins cause i have no pin cushion. we should have a sewing day where you hold the baby and i get to sew. then i can finish my quilt and get your advice on how to make pants and pin cushions, love you heaps, keep up the amazing inspiration. <3

I'm in! Whilst we are all touting our reasons for worthiness of your gorgeous pin cushion, let me just say that because I have oodles of ambition but really, no sewing ability to speak of, your pin cushion would be adored. I'd whack it in the little shrine, in our house (was built by the former owner to honour his wife's passing) and light a couple of candles to seek crafty blessings so one day I too could become a crafty genius and make something so utterly gorgeous. Love green by the way - just in case I'm lucky enough!

Sara said...

Oh I miss you already. Happy 100 posts Wendy! I look forward to reading the next 100. Hip Hip hooray for the Textured Leaf!
And did you actually embroider that pin cushion? It's not just a lovely doily sewn into a pin cushion. For reals? You blow me away... I do have a favourite colour or two but if I was the lucky winner I'd be happy with anything that you created. Bless you Wendy, you're an inspiration.
p.s hope it all went well at your mums place! xx

the textured leaf said...

No, alas I didnt embroider this! My embroidery hand is quite bad at the moment, (not much patience for this in fine weather you see). It is one of my favourite doileys that I was saving for something special and it is part of a set.
Havent even started at mums (havent even begun taking photos) because lots of people were in and out wishing her and new hubby well with the new abode!
Up and at em for tomorrow with lots of to-doings, x

Sally said...

So so beautiful. Love your pin cushion so much that I even had a "oh bummer!" moment when I saw that Gina was the lucky one.
Happy 100th post!

Jo said...

I love the pin cushion. You can never have too many! Blue, red, pink .....

the textured leaf said...

thank you immensely for all the lovely words on my creation!

廢話不多,祝你順心~^^........................................

Sara said...

Oh. I'm actually relieved to hear that you didn't embroider it, I'd worry that you'd be so busy embroidering you wouldn't have time to blog, and then I'd get wendy withdrawals, which I think I am already suffering from. Hope all goes smoothly at your mums - hope to hear all about it when the chaos is over! much love xoxo

Tracey said...

oh, I am in too, can one ever have too many cute pincushions!

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

Congrats! I love the pincushion. My favorite color is pink! :) I'm going to post my 100th giveaway soon too (fyi)...if I can ever get my act together. :)

Hello there, Im very new to this - have been reading your blog for some time now and finally plucked up the courage to drop you a line! Loved your pin cushion, really want to get involved with this bloggy swappy thing!!! I really love readng your blog and enjoy hearing about you family (gorgeous boys!) and life. Nice to meet you .....Gailx

the textured leaf said...

Well, its nice to meet you too GladyAndFlo, Ive just pressed 'follow' on your blog (never been a first follower before). Itll be interesting to see what you write about! Love your blog name.

gladyandflo said...

How sweet, thanks for replyng to my comment!Glad you like my name Glady and Flo - named after my Grandmother and her wacky sister!!!Yikes, what do you mean you pressed 'follow' on my blog? Me thinks I should ge some help with this scarey stuff ha ha! Gailx

the textured leaf said...

Okay. So youve joined blogger but you havent written your first post and maybe you dont intend to, but ive started to follow you as I had the 'option' when I looked up your profile page(there was a button called a widget). Its all a bit overwhelming at first but you can just press a different button each time you log on, which is what I did. You know, to find out what leads you where and so on. It took me months to feel comfy though but its kind of a nice challenge because everyone is so helpful. Kind of 'Ask And Ye Shall Recieve'.
So ...what will you write about first?
have fun :)

gladyandflo said...

Well hello -thanks for all your advice, got to get my head around all this computer talk I guess, but I will get it eventually I know, "I am Woman hear me roar" Ha ha!(Opps,that will only make sense if your over 21!!) Can I just mention to anyone living down on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, or anyone looking for something to do over this weekend - visit Art Red Hill. Red Hill Consolidated Primary School are holding their annual Art Exhibition at the Primary School. Google for moore info, lots of Art, Craft etc. Look out for Glady and Flo's bags and brooches! Check out the delightful Miss Kitty's tea room and shop in Red Hill. Lots and lots of fab things to do over the weekend! Bye for now Gailx
