Blackbirds Needle and Pins


I finished this lovely blackbird design into the pincushion that is in the book With Needle & Thread. I just love how it came out. It was lots of fun. I also used the stuffing that was recommended crushed walnut shells. It was the first time I ever used it and I have a few fobs to make so I think I will use that to fill them. Its really great stuff.

What a sweet finish! I stitched this for an exchange I was in last summer. It was a lot of fun.
Yours is beautiful!
