I have a finish to show you!
Not only did I manage to finish the stitching for my pin cushion, I also managed to actually finish the pin cushion.
Here it is fully stitched and also fully finished.
And some close ups:
I’m really happy with it, I hashed the counting a little in that the detail on the sides was suppose to line up but for some reason that I can’t remember I decided to make it a slightly different size to the pattern I made. But oh well, at least it all fit together properly.
I’m looking forward to making the other houses too. Ravenclaw is in the early stages of being designed. But I’ve already lined up a pretty massive next project. After months of work I’ve finally finished a Peter pan quote design which is what I’ll be stitching for…. A while!
It’s got 25 different colours in it which is ten more than I’ve ever used for one project before and even that wasn’t something I’d designed myself. (It was 30 but I managed to get it lower!) I dutifully went through my stash looking for which ones I had so I could buy the others and in the end I only had one! I had to buy the other 24 but at least I already had the fabric. I’ll be stitching it on 18 count white aida.
Here’s a sneak peak of all the colours next to each other.
The stitch along is run every three weeks which gives us all enough time to get something done and you can stitch whatever you want.
Here’s the links of all the others taking part:
You should check them all out as there’s so many different awesome projects going on and we’re always up for new members.
