If you recall from this post I was going to spend some of my free time in the holidays stitching...and that I did.
I managed to get the pin cushion pattern from Lynette Anderson finished well before Christmas...
So pretty when it was finished and now it looks a little different as it has already been pressed into service and looks more like a porcupine! LOL But it will service me well as a pin cushion as it is quite a good size and won't get lost as easily as my old one.
It went together so well that I was spurred on to do some more stitching, but not before sorting out my stash of embroidery floss. As Christmas Eve isn't really the best time to be heading out to the craft shop I decided to look online to see if there were any printable spools. Lucky for me Wild Olive had these printable bobbins which were perfect for the job.
As I didn't want another pin cushion nor to start something large like a quilt, I decided that what ever I chose to stitch should be something useful and practical. :o) Jumping on the band wagon, I printed the Keyka Lou pattern for this darling little dumpling purse and prepped some green linen for stitching.
I'm so thrilled with the results and how easy it was to make. The instructions were really easy to follow and I can see myself making a few more in the future. Now I just have to decide what I'm going to use my little purse for...any ideas? ;o)
Until next time....
