Two finishes to share today!

Isn't it fun to finish a couple of wee little things after working on an uber-huge project?!?

I started this little art nouveau piece on retreat earlier this month and just finished it this morning. I'm debating whether to frame it or make something out of it like a scissors sheath.

It only measures 3.5" tall by 2.5" wide.

The linen is 32 count, hand dyed by color genius Catherine Jordan in the most knock out gorgeous torquoise you've ever seen. I'd like to have a BOLT of it!

In case you are wondering, those are my initials in the lower right hand corner.

Next, I fell in love with these little cuties as soon as I saw them on Arlette's blog, Polka Dot Pineapple. I combined two of her tutorials and came up with a hybrid golf tee/wooden spool pin cushion of my very own. It's just the thing to hold those beautiful satin bows leftover from Easter that I just couldn't bring myself to throw away. You never know, I might need them some day! I can definitely see more of these cuties in my future. Thanks Arlette!

Now just how darn cute is that?!?


  1. Your cross stitched piece is beautiful and I'm sure you will enjoy it whether you choose to frame it or to make it into a scissor sheath.
    Your pincushion turned out absolutely fabulous!
