My blog for needlework, books, and my frequent visits to local exhibits + events.
I tend to pick up souvenier pins where ever I go, and my button collection is overflowing!
Never met a button I didn't adore.
You just never know what you'll spot at the LNS. Yesterday, at House of Stitches, among many beautifully stitched shop models -- I saw a stitched pincushion from this pattern. It caught my eye - and, the rest is history. Into my hand jumped the pattern, and I switched out the fiber a bit (prefer the Weeks Baked Apple over the Crescent Used Brick - perhaps it is just the current dye lot). What fun to search thru the bin of fabric cuts to find the "just right" colors. I found a 30 ct Lt Espresso, 30 ct French Vanilla, and 29ct Glenshee which will work. Never mind there are pre-made pincusions you can use!!! Thx GF (yes, you know who you are) for the GC.
Once stitched, should complement my other HE pieces.
