Wessex Pincushion

After a lovely holiday, in Munich (my birthplace) and Banbury, England, (where my son lives), I am back on the farm. Suitcases are unpacked and everything is back to normal. I can't believe how fast the time has gone by....

As promised, here is the Wessex Pincushion.

The Pincushion measures 8cm x 8cm.

I used 28ct antique evenweave fabric and  hand dyed Chameleon Threads in the colours Slate, Cornflower, Pine Needles and Moss.

I added some fantasy bullion flowers to the design. (I love to mix techniques)

Do you like it? Any Comments? Please???

Until next time, enjoy your stitching,

Lovely!. Your bullion flowers are a brilliant idea. I am having a go at some Wessex stitchery. Your colours are subtle and lovely. There doesn't seen to be that much Wessex stitchery around.

Thank you Wendy. I am sure you will enjoy to work the Wessex stitchery.
