goodies & a couple of finishes.

Thursday my parcel arrived from the lovely Michelle. When Michelle posted recently about her latest pattern i emailed her & asked to send me what was needed & the stand.
Included was candy & cute little cut-out rabbits.
I traced the pattern yesterday evening & have 2 lines of words embroidered. :) The fabrics Michelle sent are gorgeous.

I have a few finishes. A couple i can't show as they are for a swap. The hexagon butterfly is now a cushion.
Recently Melissa offered a free pattern on her blog. I've turned mine into a pincushion
I used Cottage Garden threads for the embroidery.

Happy Stitching,

What a pretty pin cushion! And don't you love stitching with Cottage Garden threads? I have only one skein of variegated that I used to stitch a Christmas pillowcase, and I really liked it.
