Pincushions Finish-Finished

Blackbird Designs (l to r)
Small Token
Buttons & Pins
Bird in Hand

Ever since I bought myself a pumpkin pincushion for my birthday, I have been on a little bit of a "pincushion" kick. Here are my pincushions for 2010-All Finished! Since I always seem to be out of at least one of the called-for threads a few substitutions were made-Small Token-I used GAST Dungarees for the blue bird; Bird in Hand-I used GAST Buckeye Scarlet and a Christmas fabric for backing; and Buttons and Pins-I didn't chain stitch the whole body of the vase, just the handles and GAST Cherry Wine for the flowers .

Today's high is supposed to get to 19 degrees-pretty cold for us! I'm heading back to the fire!
