Pincushion...

Here is my finished pincushion a lá I ♥ patchwork.

Pincushion

I used cotton, linen & wool fabric, a porcelain escargots dish (from the essential ingredient) & pure wool stuffing.

And because this pincushion is for a good friend's birthday I couldn't resist a bit of cross stitch. Happy birthday Kate, I hope you have a lovely day today.

Oh so that's who it's for! Wow she is going to looove it! I really like your use of the different dish. The little "pouffs" stand alone beautifully. And you've used my favourite fabric of all time - the grey kei honeycomb. Love it!

I have done nothing but stroke and admire my pin cushion all day.

It now has pride of place in my little sewing nook, adorned with sparkly, beaded pins. It is quite simply, perfect.

Thanks Chris, it will be treasured for many, many moons to come. You are my friend, a sweet heart x
