Sometime ago I joined the pincushion swap by Quilting Jeannet. The pincushion that I made has arrived safely by someone and I can show a picture on nov.6th when everybody else show their recieved pincushion. I haven't recieved a pincushion back but hopefully its before nov. 6th.
Because organizing a swap is alot of work I have made a pincushion for Jeannet as well, as a thank you gift. She recieved it yesterday and she found it very pretty. She likes things that looks old, so I made one using a pattern from Stacy Nash Primitives called Monogrammed Pinkeep. The fabric I used is 28 ct jobelan, stained with coffee and baked dry in the oven so it has a antique look.
Stitched 1 over 2 with DMC 611 and 926 and the flower fabric that you see I used for the back of the pincushion.
I'm a great fan of Stacy Nash Patterns and today I orderd 2 patterns from her, as a (early) birthday gift for myself. Do I need a better excuus LOL
The first pattern I orderd is her newest one: Hallowe'en Jack Sewing Roll Pattern and I also orderd the scissor you see on the picture (steweb scissor). I realy like that one !!
The second pattern is a patternbook called: Merry Hallowe'en Pattern Book. Inside there are 4 lovely pincushion patterns. I hope the patterns and scissor will arrive soon !
