Although it is spring right now, winter temperature is still lingering around here. So I guess it’s ok for me to do some winter finishes~ :-)
These winter stitches has been sitting in my to be finished pile for more then a year. I finally dug them out and finished them this past week.
Pattern: Heart in Hand “Winter Fobs”
Thread: DMC cotton floss & Sampler floss
Fabric: 32ct Belgium linen
Finishing Date: 04-30-2010
First up is this little pincushion. It is 2.75” x 3.25”. I like the simplicity of the design very much!! I screwed up a little bit on the closing, though… Must need more practice….
Second up is a pinkeep, it’s 2.875” x 3.25”. It was originally designed to be a fob, but I changed it into a pinkeep instead. I fell in love when I first saw this whimsical snowman!!! I actually had a hard time finishing this one up, because I didn’t know how to hide the ends of the cording. After several attempt, this is what I made peace with.
Finally, it’s a needle roll!! This is my first needle roll finish, and I have to say it is quite fun~ I love all the specialty stitches on this one!! It really made the whole thing special.
So this time it’s all about the pins. What should I grab out next to be finished up?
