Canvas Work Creations!

Not a lot of stitching got done over the long weekend because we ventured out to train (in the rain) for a big walk we have coming up!   But I did manage to finish off this cute canvas work piece!  I love the colours!   I found this pattern in an English Needlecraft magazine which is about 15 years old!   I have changed it slightly to suit my taste!

It is always fun to use lots of different stitches to create something - usually I make up my own designs so it was a bit hard to stick to a pattern - which is why I wandered off a couple of times!

This will be a great pincushion I'm thinking!

And the pattern called for a felt backing but I decided I would like a stitched one so I used up the rest of the colours to make a nicer backing!
