Pincushion


The Brisbane Sunday Stitches have a F/B group for a UFO challenge.... at the beginning of the year we number 12 different UFO's and each month a number is chosen....

Cheryll hosts WOOFA and though I had hoped to work on another project they will have to combine this month....

I did lay out my WOOFA challenge on the design board... so that kinda counts???



For May it was the big round pincushion that I was to finish....

 There is so much to each part so heaps of pictures...


It's about 6" in diameter....


I loved doing all the different aspects of applique, embroidery, even EPP,


... so much detail...


Anni Downs design from an old Homespun Magazine...


happy sayings on some panels...


I love the detail for the top and little dangles...


I had a guineafowl candle holder in the house (from Zimbabwe)


perfect size for this big round pincushion...


I'm afraid I don't want to stick pins into it.... it has become one of my favourite dust collectors instead....


Righto, Gotta Go.... the next UFO to work on is a boro snap purse....

Yes... getting your project on a design board counts towards completing your monthly WOOFA challenge... great effort.

I love your version of Anni’s pincushion. I have the pattern from the magazine......One day...... Your stand suits it so well. I haven’t started my WOOFA stitching for this month as yet, but the month isn’t over yet.

Love looking at your project on the design board. Your pincushion is beautiful as you can so much detail, I wouldn't be sticking pins into it either. There is a lot of stitching in that. Your Boro purse looks interesting.

Karen S said...

That is an amazing pin cushion. And what a wonderful candle holder that you can us with it.
Love seeing all the blocks up on the design wall, too.

Raewyn said...

Oh yes, I have that Homespun too - I love your pincushion and it really is a work of art. I wouldn't want to spear it with a pin either! Your OBW blocks look great!!!!!
