Blackbird Design Pincushion

This is my latest finish from Blackbird Designs. As you see, I had to change it again into my own idea to make it "mine". I stitched it with HDF silks from Vikki Hastings on 28ct. Ancient Cashel Linen. I added the tiny ruffle around the edge and the little ruffle around the button in the middle. I felt horrible that I couldn't add one of my bows but the design just was too busy for one.
I love doing Blackbird designs and this one will make a great addition to my collection. One thing I forgot to mention is what it's filled with.....rice with dried lavender so it has a beautiful smell to it.
As always, Barbara

A beautiful finish! I found your blog via a link on Lynda's blog.

Could you "turn on" your feeds so I can be notified when you update your blog? I'd sure like to keep up with you!
