It is the last Friday of the month and time to join Mary of Mary´s Thread for the Smalls SAL check-in, but I have no recent stitching to show.I have been busy sewing cushions and pillowcases this month which I am sure nobody wants to see - well maybe the cushions when they are completely finished, so to be able to join you all this month, I found some stitching that I hadn´t shown on this blog before.
and I hadn´t shown these two pincushions before because I don´t like them at all. I saw them in a needlework magazine last year.
and fancied making the two different shaped cushions as they included ribbon embroidery which I hadn´t done for ages.
I had some ribbon in my stash and I chose a purple and pink combination with scraps of matching fabric - big mistake.
I didn´t like the colours at all and even less with the added trim, but they were fun to embroider and might come in handy as gifts.
I´m away on holiday next month so won´t be blogging again until September. Hope you see you all then. Happy Holidays.
