Soar Pincushions!

I decided it was time to make this pattern, since I won it over a year ago. It was from a Blackbird Designs contest and this was in my prize package. It really was fun to do and I actually did chain and stem stitches, the right way, for once;)

The pattern is by Kathy Schmitz, I just love her designs and would love to do more of hers. I started these yesterday and finished today, so they work up fast and great idea for gift giving. You can follow her blog for new designs or visit her etsy shop.

I used tea stained muslim and the floss is a dark shade, 2021, so not as light and glossy as it looks in the photo.

Oooh, I like those, they are very different and it's nice to see
something new like your little tucks.
Beautiful finish, too.
Blessings,
Susan

Ok....looks like I'm in the minority here - have to admit, I've never heard of Kathy Schmitz....But I truly do like these little pincushions - very different....and a great job of stitching Deb. Oh boy...something new to check out.... Hope you have a great new week! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
