My latest finish....

I started stitching this pincushion on Wednesday night and finished the stitching about an hour ago and decided to just go ahead and get the total finish done. I am sooo happy with how it turned out. This is a Blackbird Design pattern called Summer House Pincushion from The Honeysuckle Manor book. I stitched it on 30 count Legacy coconut macaroon with Sampler Threads Endive and Brick Path.

This is the back of the pincushion which I used Blackbird Design quilt fabric from the Garden Party Collection.

Well I am off to get ready to pick my hubby up from the airport. He has been out of town for two weeks now and I am happy to have him home again.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. The weather here has been so nice the last week or so and I hope it lasts through the weekend.

Happy Stitching!!!

How fast you are....it is great...was it hard to sew it round??? And I guess it would be best to finish every piece just right after you´ve finished the stitching...I have a really large box filled with stitched pieces...

Hugs,
