I got one pincushion finished last night and the other this morning:)))) I'm on a roll:)))

This is made from Just Nans Harmony sampler, the spring section. I took portions of that design and then I added a little ladybug and a couple hearts to fill in the holes.

I stitched this on 28 count cashel linen and I have to admit I'm really starting to like stitching on linen. I think my biggest problem in the beginning was I had a lot of inexpensive and yucky linen I was trying to stitch on. I have to say from what I can tell, you get what you pay for when it comes to linen. I don't think I will ever like stitching on it more than an evenweave like lugana or Jobelan but I am enjoying it more.

This pincushion is another Just Nan, its the extra chart in her Spring Sampler packet. I stitched it on a 32 count hand dyed opalescent lugana. You cant really see the sparkles and the shading of the fabric but the fabric is very pretty. Its shades of blue, pink and lavender that blend into each other very nicely.

I love making pincushions, lol.

So I'm off to find something else small to stitch, thankfully nothing large is calling my  name right now. See you later this week:)))
