A french heart and thread from spain....

came together to make this adorable little design that I just had to make into a pincushion.  I was lucky enough to find the french ribbon on etsy and my local LNS sells the Presencia floss that is made in Spain.  I used the red of course to stitch this and I'm going to add a skein of the white and one of the red in my giveaway because I really like this floss and I'd like to share the experience.  I also have sewn a very tiny braid around this and added a twisted braid bow made of the same floss.  You will find this one for sale in my store if you are interested.
My next entry is a little bit of a stretch....a Sweetheart Tree design called "Country French Box Topper".  I will say this....I probably won't finish it into a box topper.  
Blessings as always,
Barbara
