Today I´m checking in for the Smalls SAL, hosted by Heather at the Stitching Lotus, with this little pyramid pincushion.
I found the pattern in a copy of the magazine `Labores´ of 2014. I discovered that our local library has backcopies of this magazine, so I´m gradually working my way through the issues that I didn´t buy at the time.
I liked the little pocket for scissors although my embroidery ones don´t fit and I will have to buy smaller scissors when I see some and I also liked the tiny scissor fob.
This pattern used far more thread and took far longer to embroider than I had imagined but I like the result and it is nice and heavy due to being filled with rice .... the pattern said to use toasted rice .....!
My Wonderful Teacup
Just recently Stephanie of The Enchanting Rose held a teacup and mug exchange and I was unable to take part in the reveal party but I wish to show what I received during the week from Debbie of She Graces Her Home in God´s Beauty. Just the pretty parcel made me excited.
A beautiful teacup and such pretty handmade coasters.
Tea and goodies and a useful 2017 calendar and some wonderful embroidery transfers, threads, pin tin and a delicate embroidered hankie. Oh my..
I most sincerely thank Debbie for stepping in when a hiccup occured during the exchange and having so generously sent me these wonderful things. If you do not know Debbie´s lovely blog, please do pay her a visit and be inspired.
Until next time,
