Embroidered Washi Pincushion

I'm swapping again...I know, I cannot seem to help it...this time it's the Fab Little Pincushion Swap {FLiP}. My secret partner had this pincushion in her favorites. It also reminds me of this quilt, so I thought I'd try my hand at it...in embroidery!


I used a variety of Finca Perle Cotton size 8 {the numbers are: 1889, 1742, 1166, 7636, 1232, 1062, 4812, 3810, 3400, 2615, 2606} and some Moda Crossweave {is this really being discontinued?!}.


It actually reminds me of little strips of washi tape, and I love it!  In retrospect, it is probably a good thing I didn't have time to make my partner a new pincushion, because otherwise I'd have been too tempted to keep this one.


I cut into some Henna Garden for the back {or, actually, cut up my two yards of Henna Garden and am making something else too!}, and it complimented the front well.  I'll admit, I'm kind of sad it's done already.

And, even though I sent this on Wednesday...I've saved the post for today so I join Katie's Hand Made Parade.  You can find it here:

There and Back

What are you hand stitching these days?


P.S. I posted at my other blog today about blogger, Flickr, and picture size limits, check it out if you're blogging on blogger!
