Some new Finishes


I have been busy stitching wise. I found Faby Reilly's designs by accident - but they are lovely, with many of them now on my to do list. Well, once I buy them lol. I have a couple to be going on with though. My first finish is her Lavender Bouquet Biscornu.



Next is a small Just Nan - Winter Violets. Can you tell my favourite colour is purple? I love these little ones of hers, I have heaps in my stash and really must do more of them. I painted a paper mache box for it - it is so cute, the colour goes well with the fabric, but does not show well in the pic.



Last but not least, a couple of cupcake pincushions from The Cat's Whiskers. I have some more of these stitched but sourcing the silicone cups at a reasonable price here has been slow. I'm thinking they will make nice pressies for both mothers for Mother's Day.

I love your Lavender Biscornu, it turned out sp pretty. Your little box is adorable. I like lavender too. What a cute idea for the cupcakes. I am into cupcakes now and have collected quite a few designs. Just have to stitch some.
Have a great day,

That lavender biscornu is gorgeous. What stitch did you use for the flower petals? It really gives it a beautiful 3D effect. It almost looks like a 'trellis stitch' but I'm not sure. Lovely little box too. And the little cushions are darling.

They are supposed to be french knots, but I find colonial knots a bit easier. It come up so well doesn't it? You have me curious now though, what is trellis stitch?
