This vintage flower pincushion is from Christine Books 'Stitched Vintage'. I covered a button with a old Crinoline Lady embroidered doiley that I had purchased from an op shop last year. It had horrible stains on it, which couldn't be removed, but luckily the embroidery was fine. (So I didn't feel so bad about cutting it up) The doiley had a Crinoline Lady in 2 corners and the other 2 corners had 2 lovely flower covered arches. So I am finding projects which I can use these on...Rosalie Qinlan has An Embroidered Bird in her 'A Stitch in Time' book, which is next on the list!
Hope you are having a great week!
