I think I kinda FELL IN LOVE with the new La-D-Da pattern in the JCS ornament preview issue called " 'Tis Green "......... I went a little crazy and played with threads I thought were pretty for the fall..... These will be gifts made into pincushions....So, guess I now have some homework.........
Roasted Chestnut/Autumn Leaves/Chives
Random dyed linen end pieces
Then I found my little freebie pattern I like to use by Liselotte (see previous posts..) Its actually a biscornu pattern, but it comes together perfectly as a pincushion filled with walnut shells... I had brought all my threads with me to the beach, so I played around with some I rarely use...
Faded Red by Victorian Motto Threads
Green Vicki Clayton Hand Dyed Silk
I actually found time to finish my Quaker Motif Scissor Pocket by Barbara Bernard (no blog)..All I have to do now is find the lining fabric that suits me just right... I already have the perfect button to use and I can hand stitch the running stitch that surrounds the piece....Hopefully I will get this done soon and you can see the finished piece....
"A Token of Love"
32 ct linen coffee dyed by me
Last but not least...I had meant to show you gifts given to me earlier in June... From Char (no blog) I received the BBD blue bird made into the cutest pillow....Some of us from the PALS retreat had a private exchange and Char drew my name...thanks so much Char~~~ I just love this little pillow you made for me....AND, Amy, spoiled me the last time we visited by giving me a pincushion she had made out the dreamiest Moda fabrics.... LOVE the fall flavor that it has... Thanks again Amy~ Your talent continues to amaze me~~~
So, that's it from me.......... Back to the beach tomorrow for a few last days before I return next week.... Here's hoping you all have a week where the sun's out, the surf's up and you are sipping something frosty as you chill.............((**Hugs**)) to all, Faye
