Canvas Work Pincushion



I finally managed to finish off this wonderful piece which I have thoroughly enjoyed stitching .....





It is a Sue Hawkins kit from England and I really do love her designs .... now that I have retired from teaching needlework, I am enjoying catching up on lots of projects which I have wanted to do for a long time .... I just need more days to fit them all in ....  





I love all the tiny coloured wooden beads which were part of this wonderful colourful kit ....





Adding them all at the end of stitching was fun ......





And here is my finished pincushion .... I have weighted the bottom with some fishing sinkers so it will keep stable at all times ..... and there is a cute little fob on the top for added decoration too ....





This used a few different variegated threads with some bolder colours too .... perhaps a little outside my comfort zone .... but really fun to stitch !!
