Finished this Redwork Pincushion last night - took less than an hour. The buttons were in a collection inherited from my Nan. I am very pleased with it but I think it's probably too nice to use! As you can see I choose a fabric from my stash, with little red motifs, for the back.
Big thanks to Gwen at Scrappy Angel Quilts who has given me another Make My Day award. There are so many inspiring quilters and stitchers with lovely blogs that it is a big honour to be acknowledged in this way. Being able to share your stitching endeavours with other enthusiasts is very motivating and encouraging and I love reading everyones lovely comments.
Here is another of my cross-stitch projects. It is a Prairie Schooler pattern called 1992 Santa. I don't remember exactly when I stitched this but it was a few years ago. I framed it myself in a store bought frame - I collect frames to use for cross-stitch and stitcheries.
