Today is reveal day...

...for the Jayne's Attic monthly challenge. Yippee, I managed to get the finishing done in time this month, I just had the tassels to make and attach yesterday! The design is Alphabet Tree, a retired complimentary design by Blue Ribbon Designs. Fabric is 40ct Light Espresso R & R linen with GAST Gingersnap, stitched 1 over 2. Tassels were made with DMC 3858. Just a quick finish, a pillow/pincushion finished the same way I finished the Indigo Rose pincushion I made last year. The front and back were whipstitched together. Not wanting to miss the reveal date again this month I didn't have time to wait until I could find a patterned fabric for the back so I quickly did a little stitching instead.
