15 side pincushions

I made some pincushions in different colours and shapes, such as blue, red and starfish shape. It was fun to make and a very lovely shape. I want to try to make them again someday. I just pick small designs (bird, rose…) from freebies here and there to fit in a little square. And I don’t remember where I picked them.

Quaker Pouch

I enjoyed stitching this lovely Quaker design from AMAP and made it into a pouch for cosmetics. I carry it in my purse all the time. I used DMC variegate floss. I tried to change the colours myself. I did one with some yellow and pink, but I didn’t quite like it, so I removed all the bright colours and changed them to blue tones. I love how it turned out.

Coffee break and Tea time

Designs are from Michaels, freebies one-time. I stitched these cute projects in 2001 for my kitchen.
