Last year was an abysmal stitching year for me (as a matter of fact most years since the mid-2000s have not been especially good). This is only one of three (my "Summer" project being one of the others) finished from 2013. It was my 'Spring' project that I made for a friend (Fall still in progress and Winter not yet started . . .). But I was pleased with how my pincushion turned out.
Here is the back side of the cushion.
And a side view of the little carrot detail.
This is my favorite way to finish a smaller project with biscornus coming in a very close second. I really must spend a little time looking around and seeing what the new trends are these days for finishing. What have I missed? Probably lots and lots of new designs (in the last few years I have bought almost nothing in the way of needlework supplies, which is maybe not such a bad thing all things considered?).
Coming soon: a peek at my current projects! I think we definitely need something new to look at in this space!
