Even small finishes have great charm :-)
My DD1 made this little cross stitch embroidery for me many years ago, and it has been hidden in a box until I decided to make a little pincushion from it.
I love small pincushions to have in my project boxes. This one finish 2,5”.
For the back side of the pincushion I chose one of my favourite pink Civil War repros + a mother of pearl button.
If you suspect I am digging through my boxes these Christmas days, you are so right :-)
This little Japanese kit is so cute and I got it as a gift from someone who is not fan of the Japanese soft style.
Myself, felted wool does not really do it for me, even if I can see it is nice to look at.
Therefore I decided to change the felted wool applique pieces for fabrics.
Today I decided to make use of my Apliquick tools from Nantes.
They actually are as clever as they looked at the demonstration – how great is that!!
Besides being clever, they bring back good memories of a lovely trip. Win win :-)
Putting the pincushion to good use, the applique is now ready to be stitched down.
I love good tools of all kinds. The Superior thread also makes applique so much more fun!
In the early mornings I try to do a little on my Cornelian quilt blocks every day.
Doing the best at this moment
puts you in the best place for the next moment.
