Pincushion...









I know...lots of photos, but I am just so pleased with how my pincushion turned out mainly because this stitchery design nearly got put in the bin! But thanks to my Mum and sister on their colour thread advice it all really came together well! My stitchery belt has a little inside pocket to hold small scissors, quick-unpick etc.
I plan to curl up on the couch tonight and crochet some more motifs...I think they would look pretty cute on a hair clip for my Miss 9! Well that's my excuse for making more...lol!

Enjoy your Evening
