One of the quilting blogs I enjoy very much is Auntie's Quaint Quilts. Christine does the most beautiful stitcheries and quilting projects which I find very inspiring
A while ago Christine sent me one of the Australian Country Threads magazines and some fabric. I wanted to make her something to show my appreciation but what? I eventually decided to make something she might not make for herself so here's what I made for her
I took an older design by The Drawn Thread and turned it into a pincushion.
I stitched the smaller design twice. Once for a fob and again for a needlecase.
I lined the needlecase with silk dupion in a colour to match the dusty pink fabric used on the front of the needlebook the back of the pincushion.
This is the inside of the needlecase and the back of the pincushion and fob.
Along with the set of needlework smalls I sent a litte Gutermann tin filled with sewing threads. I don't have a picture of that but if you go to Christine's blog you will see the tin along with the cutest picture ever of her cat Oliver admiring his reflection in the lid of the tin :)
The only other thing I have to show is some finished knitting. On one of my blog surfing expeditions I saw that Staci had finished a pair of socks. This reminded me that I had some knitting that had been hanging around for more than a year. I was inspired to get out the knitting and finish the socks. Thanks Staci :)
