Last nite was a nite filled with stitching time and I was able to finish Taby's Needle Cushion and then do the finishing part today during the race.  I love the color used in this pincushion....not something I would usually use.
Taby's Needle Cushion
by Priscilla's Pocket
I filled it with crushed corn cob for a nice primitive feel to it.  I want to try and find or make some matching pins to go with it.  I'm going to go and do some looking at shank buttons at Sewing Studio.  Wish me luck.
I have this pattern in my store for sale and I've included a piece of the WDW Wool so you don't have to go searching for it.  If you're looking for a quick stitch....this is it.

I have started "Queen of the Bee's by The Little Stitcher and I'm loving the colors....golds, green and browns.  It looks like it might be a tad smaller than The Three Stitchers but that's okay with me.

Has anyone tried the BBD way of covering boxes with fabric?  I was reading how they do it here and it seems pretty straightforward and not too hard.  I'm gonna give it a try soon so I'll let you know how it turns out.

Blessings to all, Barbara

What a sweet finish.
Never done a fabric covered box, sorry.

Such a beautifully stitched and finished pin-cushion.
