Before the pain set in I managed a few more finishes from the BBD "A Stitcher's Journey" book.
I completed the Tulip House Stitching Companion and the Tulip Pincushion. These were stitched on 30 ct Cafe Kona with the charted floss. Having no chenille trim I improvised and coffee dyed some tiny pom pom trim for the design on top. I decided the pincushion is just too pretty to keep closed inside the box so I made a fabric pincushion to keep inside the box.
Faye who knows I am in a Blackbird state of mind right now gifted me with this lovely little box topped with a pincushion design that is also from the BBD book. Doncha love that chenille trim? Thank you so much Faye - your stitching is just gorgeous!
