Pincushion Marathon!


At night when my boys go to bed I indulge in what I call Sofa Crafting, Normally it’s crochet of some kind but of late I’ve taken to embroidery… I have been using guide to embroidery stitches – Jennifer Campbell & Anne-Marie Backwell, it’s a great reference and has fab photos too. There are heaps of sections too Eg,Chain stitches, Feather stitches, Couching stitches, Smocking…. I could go on but!!!!

Basically I think this books going to keep me going a while!


 Here’s a feather pincushion in the making!


 And another…..


 And another……


 And another feather……


And a lazy daisy…..



Do you love it?!?!?!?

And to think all this is from the stash! A small part but I think I can mark this as stash busting!

Anyways I’m off to enjoy the lovely weather, Have a fabulous Sunday everyone.
