I took this morning off from my major projects I have going and decided to play a little. I had an idea for an edging that I wanted to try out. This is the results.Sometimes we just need to play and this morning was one of those for me.
I used size 10 thread in Dusty Rose, Frosty Green and Cream. I used a 7/1.65mm hook to create this one. I wanted to try an edging using the Bullion stitch so I took off from my Bullion stitch motif and created this pincushion. I think I like the edging. It measures 3 inches across. I could also be used as a sachet. The back side is a solid frosty green.
So What do you think?

That's so lovely! I'm still following patterns. One day I hope to figure out how to just "play". I love your designs and this is another gorgeous one.

This is great! It looks so dainty and feminine. I haven't tried the bullion stitch, but it looks so great and textural. Great job:cheer

Gorgeous! The detail is superb! That is exactly the kind of pincushion I want. And that she comes up with "just playing..." (Hangs head and goes to hide her thread hooks away)

As always, an inspiration! I'm just stunned by your creativity, Kathy. Patty
