Hello! This week is the February link up for the 'Patchwork with Stitchery' sew-a-long hosted by Martina at Sunshine Quilting. After my feeble start in January, I was much more organised this month and I have a lovely project to share with you.
This little embroidered pincushion was a free pattern from designer Gail Pan during a blog hop she took part in last year. I had been meaning to stitch it for some time but had not got round to it yet.
It was a lovely, quick little embroidery design which, I enjoyed stitching. Instead of satin stitching the leaves I decided to use fly stitches to fill the leaf outlines.
I am never very happy with my satin stitches and, I like how these little fly stitch leaves look.
The construction of the pincushion was nice and easy too. It is a pretty addition in my sewing room! Do pop across and see what projects the other talented ladies in the group have linked up! Have a lovely weekend.... I'm off to a free motion applique workshop tomorrow..... very exciting!!
