Blackbird Designs Antique Rose Pincushion

This is one of the newest designs from Blackbird Designs and I've stitched it with a HDF silk from Vikki Clayton. I finished it a little different than they suggested, because I stitched a pretty braid around mine and then tied the bow at the bottom with the same braid. The bow at the bottom was made from the same fabric I used for the backside of the cushion and I used crushed corn cobs for the filler. This turned out very old looking which is what I love.
As always, Barbara
