My Love Is True

A little Valentine stitching!

I finished this sweet little freebie as a tiny pillow, stitched one over one on 32ct Platinum Belfast linen.  My personalization was back stitched one over one too, so really tiny!  I used Antique Rose, Baby Spinach, Crystal Lake and Garden Gate Gentle Art Sampler Threads, and Schneckley Weeks Dye Works.  I love the tiny print fabric for backing, it's a piece of Little Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings, I thought it matched really well with the Schneckley thread used for the wording, and as it's Valentines I've also added a little wool felt heart for keeping my needle safe.  The freebie can be found HERE, and finished pictures can be seen HERE.  

Thank you for popping by - hope to be back again soon with another little finish.  :o)

African Flower Pincushion

My little project yesterday.  

Sandra Paul of Cherry Hearts Designs has recently written a brilliant tutorial for this cute crochet pincushion.  I know I've said it before, but I just love pincushions and couldn't resist crocheting this one to add to my very small crochet pincushion collection!  I would have liked to have used a nicer yarn but my yarn stash is very small and I couldn't wait to start it!  I have some lovely Rooster Almerino dk I could have used (which I bought for another little project I must get round to starting one day), but didn't have the cream shade I would have like for the bottom and sides of the pincushion.  I'm happy with how it turned out though. :o)
