A Couple of Finishes!

It's been a while again, but at last I have a couple of finishes I can blog about!  I'm trying hard to get myself motivated and back stitching regularly again, and hopefully posting a couple of quick finishes will help, along with purchasing a couple of new additions to my stash...lol! I just couldn't resist the new A Stitcher's Journey and the Basket of Memories, Reward of Merit Pincushion from Blackbird Designs! 

First to show is Peek a Boo, a freebie from Wal D'Champs. Unfortunately the Wal D'Champs website has changed since I downloaded the chart a few years or so ago and I can't find the link to it any more!  I've finished it as a little lined pocket, a finish I've seen a couple of times and have wanted to do.  I've stitched it 1 over 2 on 40ct Newcastle Pearl Grey with DMC 3865.



Below is Miss Mary Mac's Pins and Needles Pincushion by M Designs.  I've used the listed Picture This Plus 40ct Legacy Linen and Crescent Colours Threads, and the fabric you can see in the picture is what I've used for backing the pincushion.


I hope to be back again soon with more to show, until then thank you for popping by.  :o)

Two very lovely finishes Carol! I love the little pocket. I wonder if an iPod would fit inside?
I have the M Designs piece as a rather neglected WIP and now you have inspired me to finish it.
Lovely to see a blog post from you :)
