I wanted to quickly share my latest cross stitch work which I made into a pincushion for my swap partner Ali.
The back was a simple patchwork with a few scraps I had that matched the colours and machine embroidered, inc. her name.
It was sent with a little gift (tissue holder) & a scissor holder that I didn’t photographed as I only finished last minute to add to the parcel.
Both my mom and my mother in law are also taking part on swap and since they don’t blog I’m blogging in their behalf. My mom parcel is making it’s way from Brazil to London, so it means that I cannot share yet what she made.
I can only share what Ro made.
It’s a stunning swan. I will be sharing what she received later on the pincushion parade.
Both Ro & I, like many others members of the swap, did made ‘test’ pincushions. And funny enough we both choose coffee cups. Ha!!
Here is mine, before you start rubbing your eyes, yes… I missed spelled the word “Latte” and wrote “late”. So I didn’t finish it and it is not stuffed yet. Should I keep it and stuff it or bin it and make a new one?
Ro attempt was a lot more successful that mine.
