RAWR!! MONSTER PIN CUSHION!

This weekend is the last of the month, so I thought I better get my February Pattern Pact done, especially because I have an unexpected work trip tomorrow and Friday.

I decided to make the flower pincushion from the Spring 2008 Quilts and More magazine. Go ahead, go look at it, the pin cushion is in the lower right corner of the cover.

Welcome back. Does the pin cushion look extremely large to you?

Well, it is:




That cake plate holds a 6" cake. Here, maybe this will give you a reference:




See that little pinhead? It's a large-headed pin! Huge, I tell ya!

I'm glad I got it done, though, as I fly out very early in the morning. Where am I going? I'll give you a hint. My meeting will take place here:

This is a scene from one of my favorite films. The first to name the film and where this scene is set might just get a small thank you gift for stopping by!

I miss you all already, but especially this guy...

Gotta love Cary Grant! That said, I don't recognize the film so you will have to fill me in and I can put it on my list for when I have a few free hours (I keep thinking that will happen eventually!)

i have no idea on the film... and I'm thinking I don't think I've seen those cute lil prints in the frames behind the cute (albeit giganto) pincushion... ;)

Oh, I know I know! It's from North by Northwest and I think this still is from the scene in the United Nations when Thornhill is framed for murder - I haven't seen it in years, but I think I'm right.

You're giant pincushion is amazing by the way! You should put a strap o it and wear it on your head ala the munchkins in Wizard of Oz.
